First Monday of the Month Aardvark Fact

Pochailo’s Contract

Chwaliboga’s Contract

Following the folding of the Arborg Fussy P’s, the IRHL has experienced an influx of young, talented UFAs this summer. GM Gunner Gislason spent many hours on his cellular phone penetrating the IRHL UFA market. After everything was said and done, Gislason locked up Ryan Pochailo and Ethan Chwaliboga to one-year, two-way contracts. Gislason hopes this addition of young blood can add some ‘swagger’ to the aging Aardvarks lineup.

The Shooters were also busy this off-season, signing the reigning 2017-2018 IRHL MVP.

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.
