The Augustana Vikings are in the ACAC Men’s Hockey semi-finals this weekend, following a sweep of the Red Deer College Kings last weekend by scores of 3-1 and 4-0. The Vikings (19W-10L-2T-1OTL), who finished 4th in the regular season, will play the 2nd place Trojans (25W-6L-0T-1OTL). The Trojans had a first-round bye.
SAIT won all 4 regular season meetings with the Vikings by a combined score of 16-10. Leading scorers for the Vikings against SAIT during the regular season were Scott Swiston with 3 goals and 1 assist, Devon Hobbs with 1 goal 4 assists and Jeff Lorenz with 4 assists.
The Vikings are on a roll following their quarter final win over Red Deer College’s Kings. Goaltender, Joel Danyluk is on fire – stopping 78 of 79 shots against Red Deer. Vikings Head Coach, Blaine Gusdal has his team playing high tempo hockey right now and this series will no doubt be a barn-burner.
Cheer on the Vikings this weekend!
