2017/18 IRHL Save of the Year

The 2017-18 IRHL Save of the Year goes to Aardvark’s back-up Gunner Gislason.

On one damp, foggy March evening in the Riverton Memorial Arena, Gislason robbed Rifles’ Dueck of his third goal of the game. The Aardvarks’ may not have took home the ‘W’ but Gislason showed the guys that he is willing to fill any position for the team.

“Cory Johannesson is determined to reach the 70 goal plateau this season. How will he score his 70th goal” poll results

The Aardvarks’ Nation has spoken… they have no idea how Johannesson is going to pot his 70th goal of the season.

Sitting with 68 goals going into this Wednesday’s game against the Comrades, Johannesson is eager to reach 70. Although the numbers are on his side, owning  a 3.16 career goals per game average against the Comrades, he is up against the leading IRHL Vezina Trophy candidate of the year, Ryan Jonson.

The results are in. The Aardvarks Nation has decided Gunner’s post retirement endeavours by selecting his next achievement….mastering the art of hide and seek.

Associate Captain Gislason is planning on asking his father, Kenneth Gislason, to organize an alfalfa hay bale maze this upcoming summer in order to begin his training for The Nascondino World Championships, the annual international hide and seek championship, held in Italy. Gislason is sure to succeed in this competition upon retirement from the IRHL.

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.

The first annual Christmas turkey of the game award goes to Jayde Barkman. Although Barkman had a tough go against the Brewsers tonight, the Aardvarks bailed him out for the ‘W’.

Breaking news…April Fools’ Day

The previous ‘Breaking news‘ story has no validity. Gunner Gislason did not rampage the town, ringing random door bells. Or…did he???

Breaking news

The Aardvarks have stripped the captaincy from Gunner Gislason because of his off-ice shenanigans late last night. He was caught, numerous times, ringing strangers doorbells without invitation. The Aardvarks believe his actions were immoral.

The Aardvarks have now awarded their perennial 50 goal scorer, Cory Johannesson, the ‘C’ for next season.
