The Fredericton Peewee AAA Canadiens closed the 2015-2016 regular season last Sunday in Nackawic against their District rivals, the Bulls.  #9 Andrew Gweon (with the help of #18 Jeffrey Theriault) spoiled the Bulls’ chance of claiming a shutout – despite being short-handed one player no less!  In the end, the Habs were unable to catch up to the Bulls and closed the 15 minute trio with a 3 – 1 loss…

Focus is now on the upcoming Zones…  Stay tuned!

Go Habs Go!!!

Canadiens on final stretch!

Posted March 8th, 2016 | Uncategorized

The Fredericton Peewee AAA Canadiens were on the road last weekend, slowly making their way to the end of the regular season and gearing up for the upcoming Zones! On Saturday evening, the Pioneers welcomed their EDZA West rivals at the Sénéchal Centre in Grand Falls. While the hosts had home ice advantage, in no way did this deter the Canadiens from coming out in full force!

#19 Jack Price (from #9 Andrew Gweon) opened the scoring spree for the Habs with only several seconds off the clock in the first period! The Pioneers were visible not about to let their guests get away with another one of those – they battled hard and left the Canadiens without an additional score throughout the first and the second period.

The Habs fired back valiantly in the third period and #9 Andrew Gweon as well #10 Camden Thomson (from #9 Andrew Gweon) widened the gap in scores, leaving the Pioneers with a single digit to their credit! With a few seconds left, the hosts pulled their goaltender and #17 Nathan Rusk found an opening on the ice surface, skated along side the board and fired the disk right into the empty net!

Final score: 4 – 1 in favour of the Canadiens!

On Sunday momentum was not in the Canadiens’ favour and while they battled hard, the Bulls managed to climbed to a 3 – 0 advantage over their guests. We can leave that one in the ‘Barn’ and move on to the next and final encounter between these two teams – next Sunday in Nackawic!

Canadiens settle for two ties over weekend…

Back on home ice, the Fredericton Peewee AAA Canadiens hosted their District rivals on Saturday – the Bulls. It had been a while in the regular season since these two teams had faced each other and the palpable anticipation at both ends of the bleachers and on the benches set the stage for an exciting game!

The Habs dominated for the better part of the first period and their efforts were rewarded by a clever move from #46 Tyler Leaman (from the passing wizard #14 Zack Graham) during a powerplay! The Bulls avenged their misfortune in the second, scoring two goals and taking the lead with a few minutes remaining on the clock. However, #46 Tyler Leaman (again from #14 Zack Graham) spoiled the visiting team’s party by scoring the Canadiens’ second goal with 11 seconds remaining on the scoreboard!!!

Both teams had chances and opportunities in the third but faith decided otherwise, leaving both contenders with 2 goals each in the end.

Sunday, the Canadiens were again hosts and challenged the Caps at the Aitken University Centre! The Habs were out to avenge an earlier 7 – 1 loss against their hometown rivals and all new the work and determination required to achieve this.

Each team had its share of close calls in the offensive and defensive zones. The Caps took the first period with one goal. Chance turned in the Canadiens’ favour in the second – #3 Tyler Lynch (from #10 Camden Thomson) tied things up on a powerplay for the Habs!

The visiting team took a one-goal lead early in the third… But #9 Andrew Gweon made things right for the Canadiens’ once again and evened the score!

The Canadiens and Caps finally settled for a 2 – 2 tie.

Well worth the Thursday evening drive – Canadiens over Cougars in Sussex!

Posted February 26th, 2016 | Uncategorized

Following a disappointing weekend, the Fredericton Peewee AAA Canadiens made their way south Thursday night to battle the Cougars on their turf and reboot their momentum! Habs fans were not disappointed!

 

Early in the first period, the Canadiens made good use of an extra-player advantage on the powerplay. Defensemen #6 Simon Levert capitalized on a Cougars’ blind spot near the goal crease, sneaked in and redirected #14 Zack Graham’s pass to the back of the net!

 

The Cougars increased their pressure on the visiting team and scored late in the first, and again in the second period.

 

Down by a goal, the Canadiens regrouped in the third and fired back! #9 Andrew Gweon (from #46 Tyler Leaman) instigated the Habs’ comeback and forced his way through the Cougars’ defensive line with stealth and agility!  A few minutes later, #19 Jack Price took another one of #14 Zack Graham’s strategic passes and fired it deep behind the home team’s goaltender!

 

With a few seconds remaining and leading 3-2, the Canadiens were challenged yet again when the Cougars pulled their goalie…. However, the extra player was not enough to stop #10 Camden Thomson from pushing the puck pass the Habs’ blue line and firing it dead-center from the red line into the Cougars’ empty net!

 

Final score: 4 – 2 in favour of the Canadiens!

Tough weekend for Habs

Dec 12_13

Two back-to-back losses for the Fredericton Peewee AAA Canadiens over the weekend will likely have the team going back to basics, refocusing, regrouping and doing what they do best – winning!

The Habs hosted their northwestern counterparts, the Pioneers, early Saturday afternoon. The Canadiens took an early lead 39 seconds into the first period, thanks to a clever offensive play by #3 Tyler Lynch!

By the halftime mark of the second period however, the Pioneers were leading 4 – 1… #9 Andrew Gweon managed to take the Canadiens’ score up another notch late in the second but the visiting team would later add two extra digits to their tally in the third. A disappointing 6 – 2 loss for teammates who pushed hard offensively and protected their zone and net effectively but could not collect the rewards.

On Sunday, the Habs were hosted by their hometown rivals, the AAA Express. Again, the Canadiens took a 1 – 0 lead quickly in the initial period, with a tip of the hat once more to #Tyler Lynch (from #10 Camden Thomson)!

Despite valiant efforts, the Canadiens fell victims to several short-handed minutes in the second and the third periods and the Express took full advantage of their rivals’ misfortune, claiming four unanswered goals and taking to the winners’ podium with a 4 – 1 advantage over their guests…

A tough weekend for the Canadiens… Time to shake those two games off and refuel on team chemistry and on-ice synergy!

Go Habs Go!!!

An on-ice tale of two cities!

The Fredericton Peewee AAA Canadiens travelled to Saint John Friday night to challenge the Warriors on their home turf at the Lord Beaverbrook Arena. The first half of the initial period had fans struggling to guess who would draw first blood, the puck being dragged from one end of the ice surface to the other with ample opportunities but no credits scored…

The Warriors broke the suspense mid-way in the first but the Canadiens’ #8 Andrew Gweon retaliated shortly after, making his way right to the Warriors net tender despite being short-handed! The 1 – 1 tie was short-lived as the hosts raised their tally to 4 before each team retreated to their respective bench following the buzzer’s call.

The Habs’ #18 Jeffrey Theriault (from #8 Andrew Gweon) claimed the first score of the second period but again, the Warriors came down hard offensively and posted another one to their collection… By the end of the third, the Canadiens were left at two while the Warriors added another pair to take the final count to 7 – 2 in their favour.

This disappointing first loss of the regular season for the Canadiens visibly pushed all of the right buttons… and this was painfully obvious for the Saint John Sea Dogs who visited the Aitken University Centre early Saturday afternoon!

The more time trickled off the clock, the more the Habs pressured the visiting team back into their zone! #18 Jeffrey Theriault (from #19 Jack Price) got the Canadiens’ on the board late in the first period and set the tone for the upcoming period!

Early in the second, #3 Tyler Lynch (from #7 Christian Fraser and #10 Camden Thomson) got the Canadiens’ side of the scoreboard to an even number! With a little over five minutes remaining in the period, #6 Simon Levert’s temporary assignment as a winger paid off when fellow defenseman #17 Nathan Rusk made the strategic pass!

The flooding break in between final periods did little to slow the Canadiens down! #19 Jack Price (from #18 Jeffrey Theriault), #18 Jeffrey Theriault (from #10 Camden Thomson and #17 Nathan Rusk), #3 Tyler Lynch (from #10 Camden Thomson and #17 Nathan Rusk) and #14 Zack Graham (from #18 Jeffrey Theriault) got the scorekeeper working overtime!!!

7 – 0 final for the Canadiens – great job!!!

Strong performance by Canadiens leads to Win!

Posted November 29th, 2015 | Uncategorized

Thanks to effective defensive work, strategic and coordinated offensive strikes and a solid performance by #35 Will Englehart in net, the Fredericton Peewee AAA Canadiens scored four unanswered goals early Sunday afternoon at the AUC against their hometown rivals, the AAA Express!

The Canadiens’ #3 Tyler Lynch (from #7 Christian Fraser) and #10 Camden Thomson (from #7 Christian Fraser and #3 Tyler Lynch) each got one in the first period, elevating the Habs to a quick two goal lead!

#14 Zack Graham got the Canadiens’ third goal in the second (from #46 Tyler Leaman) and got his second of the game in the third period (from #8 Ben Brewer)!

End score: 4 – 0 Canadiens! Go HABS Go!

Game 3 – Canadiens face off against Dieppe Eagles!

The Fredericton Peewee AAA Canadiens were back in Hartland Saturday morning for their third game of the EDZA West Tournament! Hoping to clinch their first win of the weekend, the Habs darted on the ice surface with momentum and kept the energy on overdrive during the initial period. Their hard work paid off early on as #9 Andrew Gweon (from #10 Camden Thomson) scored the first goal of the game and put the Canadiens in the lead.

#46 Tyler Leaman (from #14 Zack Graham) avenged an earlier goal by the Eagles in the second period, putting his team back in the lead! Dieppe managed to put two extra digits on the scoreboard before the end of the period, leaving the Canadiens trailing 3 – 2 as the clock struck the twelve minute mark…

The Canadiens fired back in the third and #7 Christian Fraser (from #6 Simon Levert and #10 Camden Thomson) restored hope on the Habs’ bench late in the period. The Eagles came down hard on our defensive zone and, again, added two additional points to their tally before the buzzer rang the game to its 5 – 3 end in their favour.

Congrats to #9 Andrew Gweon for being named Player of the Game!

Game 4 – Canadiens close tournament with a tie!

Rotating lines made things interesting and exciting during the Canadiens’ fourth and final game of the EDZA West Tournament as they challenged the Lewisville Lightning once again this season!

The Canadiens closed off the first period leading 2 – 1, thanks to an awesome rush in the offensive zone by #17 Nathan Rusk (from #18 Jeffrey Theriault) and a well-executed plan by #19 Jack Price (from #17 Nathan Rusk and #18 Jeffrey Theriault)!

The Lightning tied things up in the second but the Habs took a quick lead once again in the third period after #18 Jeffrey Theriault fired a missile right past his opponents’ goaltender! Lewisville retaliated quickly – and twice – within a minute of each goal placing them in the lead for the first time… #19 Jack Price (from #9 Andrew Gweon) came through with a few minutes left to spoil the Lightning’s party and put the Habs at a 4 – 4 par, a spot they held on to until the end of the game!

#18 Jeffrey Theriault was named Player of the Game – Congrats!

Despite the outcome, the Canadiens battled hard over the two days and should be proud of their efforts – Go Habs Go!!!

Tough loss at EDZA West tournament opener for Canadiens

Early Friday afternoon, the Fredericton Peewee AAA Canadiens travelled to “the Barn” in Hartland to take on the Moncton Hawks for their first game of the annual EDZA West tournament.

The Canadiens kept their rivals humble throughout most of the first period of the match, allowing the Hawks only one unanswered goal late in the period.

The Moncton team had all cylinders fired up in the second and tallied three other goals, ending the period with a 4 – 0 lead…

The Habs suffered another blow in the third as the Hawks scored their fifth goal… and the final one of the game, leaving the Canadiens far back and unable to catch despite notable efforts.

A tough 5 – 0 loss for the Fredericton teammates but disappointment is not defeat! The Habs have more battles to fight… and win!!!

Three cheers for #46 Tyler Leaman who earned the Player of the Game title!

Canadiens keep West Kent Aces busy!

The Canadiens congregated in Florenceville-Bristol later Friday afternoon to challenge the West Kent Aces. The Habs hit the ice visibly ready to deliver the goods and they sure did throughout the three periods of this extremely close match!

#11 Josh Maher (from #14 Zack Graham) and #7 Christian Fraser (from #10 Camden Thomson) gave the Canadiens their two goals in the first and third period respectively! The Aces responded by posting two of their own on the scoreboard… but managed to add an extra digit during the final minutes of the game.

The Canadiens should be proud of their second game of the tournament as they delivered an impressive performance both offensively and defensively! And hats off to #1 Nick Parsons for making countless saves in net for the Habs and earning the Player of the Game award!
