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.

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”.

The Arborg Aardvarks have acquired Jayde Barkman from the Riverton Rifles to replace Mack Marks between the pipes. Barkman made some critical saves in his first game as an Aardvark, stopping 59 shots in the 15-11 victory over the Riverton Pointers.
You can catch Barkman and the Aardvarks in action this Sunday at 7:30pm in the Arborg Arena when they face off against the Arborg Comrades.
