From nothing to something is the only way to describe the University of Ottawa Gee-Gees men's hockey program. Shut down by the school following an off-ice incident in Thunder Bay, Ont. during a road trip in February of 2014 which resulted in sexual assault charges against a pair of players and the subsequent suspension and eventual firing its head coach, the Gee-Gees returned to the OUA fold for the 2016-17 season after a 15-month hiatus.
The hockey teams representing U SPORTS collected medals at the 2017 Winter Universiade Games which wrapped up Feb. 8 in Almaty, Kazakhstan, but both failed to collect the much sought-after gold medallions.
Captains are expected to make an impact, and Garrett McFadden is trying to do so in more ways than one. The Guelph Storm captain and last player remaining from Guelph’s 2014 OHL championship team has taken mental health seriously ever since his friend, Wes Cameron, died by suicide five years ago.
Ontario University Athletics officials are hoping a tough selection process will result in a return to glory for the U Sports men's hockey team at the upcoming Winter Universiade Games in Almaty, Kazakhstan.
