Later, the Habs were again up against a strong team, the Lynx.  The latter got a quick 2-0 lead in the first period but it was all red, white and blue in the second as the Canadiens evened things up 2-2, thanks to #12 Bradley Morrison (from #10 Camden Thomson and #7 Christian Fraser) and #19 Jack Price (from #9 Andrew Gweon and #5 Ross Briggs)!  The Lynx came back hard in the third, scoring a third goal and a final one on an empty net…  4-2 final score.

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!

A challenging second round against AAA Bulls!

Posted November 15th, 2015 | Uncategorized

Some 24 hours after defeating the AAA Bulls 4 – 0 in Fredericton on Saturday, the Fredericton Peewee AAA Canadiens travelled north to Florenceville-Bristol to challenge their District rivals once more early Sunday afternoon.

From the initial puck drop on, it quickly became obvious that the hosts were not about to let the Habs take another ‘walk in the park’ this time! #10 Camden Thomson got one in for the Canadiens late in the first period but the Bulls battled back, posting a score of their own late in the second…

Mid-way through the third period and within two minutes, both teams scored – the Canadiens’ spectacular laser-guided goal scored by #14 Zack Graham (assisted by #12 Bradley Morrison and #46 Tyler Leaman)! Both benches finally settled for a hard-fought 2 – 2 tie.

Hats off to #1 Nick Parsons in net for the Canadiens as he saved the day on numerous occasions and kept his teammates focused!

#10 Camden Thomson posted the initial score of the game with 11:27 remaining in the first period, giving the Canadiens an early lead! The Habs dominated as time trickled to the zero mark but failed to post additional digits despite close calls… That was about to change in the second!

A few seconds into the next period, #18 Jeffrey Theriault (from #5 Ross Briggs and #9 Andrew Gweon) initiated a scoring trend in favour of the Canadiens! At 7:12, #10 Camden Thomson (from #6 Simon Levert and #5 Ross Briggs) scored the Habs’ third unanswered goal of the game! Less than five minutes later, #3 Tyler Lynch (from #10 Camden Thomson and #6 Simon Levert) moved into ‘pumpernickel mode’ as the Canadiens’ score rose to 4!

The Fredericton Peewee AAA Canadiens were all about playing ‘tricks’ and collecting ‘treats’ on Sunday morning. The Habs were hosted at the Aitken University Centre by their rivals, the AAA Caps, and once again fans were set to be treated to intense on-ice action!

#18 Jeffrey Theriault posted the first goal of the game early in the initial period! The Canadiens kept pushing into the Caps’ defensive zone and were eventually rewarded when #10 Camden Thomson (from #8 Ben Brewer and #7 Christian Fraser) got the blade of his hockey tilted to a perfect angle for the puck to rise above the shoulder of his goal-tending opponent!

Several minutes into the second, #7 Christian Fraser capitalized on a player advantage and made it 3 – 0 for the Habs!

Barricades, limited parking space and endless detours in the perimeter of the Aitken University Centre did not deter Peewee AAA hockey fans from converging in the AUC’s bleachers for this second encounter of the season between the Fredericton Peewee AAA Canadiens and their hometown rivals, the AAA Express!

For the better part of the first period, it was anybody’s guess who would clinch the first goal and post a digit on the scoreboard. Back-and-forth action kept fans of all ages on the edge of their seat! The Express finally got lucky late in the period and took the lead… momentarily.

The Canadiens came back with a vengeance early in the second period! #10 Camden Thomson (from #7 Christian Fraser and #3 Tyler Lynch) found the back of the Express’ net, burying the puck deep behind enemy lines! Several minutes of hard work passed before #7 Christian Fraser (from #3 Tyler Lynch and #12 Bradley Morrison) raised the bar a notch higher, making it 2-1 for the Habs!

Another early opportunity opened up for the Canadiens several minutes into the third period and #18 Jeffrey Theriault (from #5 Ross Briggs and #6 Simon Levert) took full advantage of it! The period remained intense until the final minute when #10 Camden Thomson sealed the deal and made it a final 4-1 for the Habs!

Hats off to #1 Nick Parsons for another awesome performance between the Canadiens’ posts!
