November 2017 report

The Aardvarks are off the mediocre start this 2017/18 campaign, posting a 4-5-0 record.

New acquisition Evan Kassay has brought some more size and muscle to the Aardvark’s lineup. He is doing a good job filling the void of Parker Abuda, who is currently holding out for more money and more ice time.

Like the beginning of last year, Cory Johannesson is off to a sluggish start, performing well below his 2.5 goals/game career average. The absence of Abuda could have an impact with his current point production. Johannesson has to up his performance this December, as his 22 year contract is expiring at the end of this season. He is currently at the top of this year’s IRHL trade bait list.

Gislason’s Quest for the Double

Associate Captain Gunner Gislason begins his quest to win back-to-back league and provincial championships on Sunday October 22nd 2017 at 19:15 at the Arborg and District Arena. Tickets are available at the front door for $5, but if Gislason is your favourite Aardvark, admission is free!

We recently asked associate captain Gunner Gislason how he feels about this upcoming season. “I usually do not look too closely at the schedule, just take one game at a time, but this year I am busy coaching my Midget team, who are defending league and provincial champions, and noticed that I will be missing 9 Monday night games this year. But I am very confident the boys will pull out a few ‘W’s’. My point total will not reflect my usual numbers, but one has to sacrifice playing for coaching success”.

2016-17 IRHL Goal of the Year

The 2016-17 Interlake Recreational Hockey League Goal of the Year goes to the Aardvarks’ own Cory Johannesson.

There were many candidates for this year’s award, but none could compete with Johannesson’s low five-hole thriller. The fan favourite started off in his own end, out manoeuvring all five Fussy Puckers with his lightning fast speed, finishing things off with his signature move to lead the Aardvarks to victory.


End of year report

The Aardvarks finished the 2016-17 season with a 16-10-3 record, a big improvement from last year.

To keep their momentum rolling, the Aardvarks took part in the inaugural spring training at the Arborg and District Arena. The Aardvarks experimented with some new line combinations and set breakouts with great success. The only downside of the spring training was the loss of their star player Gunner Gislason who suffered a broken collar bone during a match-up with the Shooters. Thankfully Gunner has the entire off-season to heal and get back to tip-top shape.

The Aardvark’s top brass want to see the team keep up their winning ways next season. In doing so, they informed each Aardvark that they have to post at least  a 10 second time in the 20-yard dash portion of the 2017 Interlake Recreational Hockey League Combine. If the 10 second result is not obtained, one of the Aardvark’s many affiliated players may have a chance to crack the line-up on a full-time basis during the 2017-18 season.
