Report Cards 2011-12: Men’s Hockey

By Justin Seward

Now that the University of Calgary Dinos have finished another season, it is time to reflect on the ups and downs of the nine teams that were in action over the winter semester — Pokémon themed, of course.

Overall record: 23-19-4

CW record: 15-11-2

Rank: Fourth in CW

This year’s squad started out of the gate slow with injuries to key players, losing three out of five games. Playoffs seemed far off after losing eight of nine games in late December. However, they came up with some key victories to earn the fourth seed in the Canada West standings and a first round matchup with the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds. The series was pushed to a deciding game. Then came the tough task of beating the University of Manitoba Bisons, which they did in two straight games. The cw semi-final against the University of Saskatchewan Huskies came down to a thrilling game three, but the Huskies prevailed with a triple overtime victory and a berth in the Cavendish Cup.

Grade: Diglet

Fun fact: Diglet can dig underground quickly, and can cause small tremors.
