UNB Wins AUS Championship

FREDERICTON – Travis Fullerton is once again an AUS Champion.

The former Saint John Sea Dogs goaltender backed up Dan LaCosta last night as the UNB Varsity Reds defeated the Saint Mary’s Huskies 2-0 to win the best-of-three Atlantic University Sport men’s hockey championship 2-1.

UNB won the first game of the series 1-0 in Fredericton last Saturday before Saint Mary’s rebounded with a 5-2 win in Halifax on Tuesday night. Dion Campbell and former Shawinigan Cataracte/Lewiston Maineiac Antoine Houde-Caron scored for UNB last night at the Aitken Centre to clinch the Atlantic conference title.

This is the third straight AUS title for Fullerton and UNB.

Fullerton, who spent one-and-a-half seasons with Saint John, has not seen any playoff action this year, playing the role of LaCosta’s backup. He went 8-4-0 in the regular season with a 2.23 GAA and .877 SV%.

UNB and Saint Mary’s will join Alberta, Saskatchewan, UQTR, and Waterloo at CIS Nationals which begin next Thursday in Saskatoon. The schedule has not been announced yet.
