Brandon University Hockey Is Back


With files from the Brandon University Bobcats.

Well that isn’t the entire truth but Brandon University Athletics will be hosting a reunion of 90 years of hockey history.

Today the Brandon University Bobcats announced plans to host a hockey reunion and alumni game on November 4-5 and are inviting all former Bobcats and Brandon College Caps to attend.   The Bobcats are welcoming former coaches, players and staff from all eras to take part in the event and for many the trip back to BU will be a short one to make.

For some it will be a time to catch-up with old friends and converse with former teammates.  "For me, it is going to be a great opportunity to meet up with old friends and to reminisce because I do not think you will find an athlete that played at Brandon University that did not leave with a positive experience," said Peter Gerlinger, a former all-Canadian and 1993 inductee into the BU Sports Wall of Fame. 

"You might get a really exciting old-timers hockey game," said ex-Bobcat and Former Wheat King Scott Hlady. "It will be neat to see some of the old Bobcats strap the laces on. I know there is still some players who played in the program that still play senior hockey, so it might be something neat to watch."

Alumni will be able to take trip down memory lane by visiting the Wall of Fame and checking out memorabilia tables that will be on display on Friday, November 4 at the Healthy Living Centre where a meet and greet will also be held.  Then on Saturday, November 5, former Bobcats and Caps will turn back the clock with an alumni game at the Sportsplex with the nostalgic contest to start at 1 p.m.
