Aardvark Jason Gulay hangs onions outside his front door a month before the IRHL season. This is a good way to keep the negative hockey Gods out of a house.
Caleb Kanteluk is the official Athletic Mechanic for the Aardvarks. His mechanic bag includes booster cables, a tire iron, a crescent wrench, a hammer, a flat-head screwdriver, a skate sharpening stone and WD-40.
Tonight, the Aardvarks battle The Pointers for the IRHL C-side Banner. If successful, the Varks will bring home their 14th league banner over their 33 years of existence. We asked Aardvark go-getter Jason Gulay how they are going to approach the big match.
‘I am sure tonight’s game will be a barn burner, it usually is against these guys. But we have the intimidation factor on our side…Gunner Gislason’s 75 mph wrist shot. We plan to set him up between the red line and blue line and let him just rifle that puck against the boards during warm-ups until the game begins. That will sure give Triska the willies.’
Fans can catch the C-side final at 8:30 pm at the Riverton Memorial Arena.
See you there!
With the arrival of the snow comes the IRHL Winter Boot of the Year competition. This year’s IRHL Winter Boots of the Year representative for the Aardvarks are Jason Gulay’s winter cowboy boots. The boots, manufactured in Texas and purchased in North Dakota, are worn by Gulay to honour his Midget Hockey coach Leonard Finnson.
There is some stiff competition for this year’s IRHL Winter Boot of the Year. The Rifles have entered Brendan Sigurdson’s Holstein hide mukluks while the Shooters have entered Blaine Magnusson’s nine inch heeled insulated rubber boots.
Aardvarks Nation wishes Gulay the best of luck!
