Mustang Men's Hockey -- Season Preview

Steve Kopp

The Western men’s hockey team had a historic season in 2016-17, but for the wrong reasons. 

The team won just eight out of 28 games last season, their lowest win total since the 1978-79 season when the team won only seven games (they went 7-5-4 that season).  The team finished under 0.500 for the first time since 1971, the year before the OUA was formed.  The team missed the playoffs for the first time in head coach Clarke Singer’s 18 years behind the bench.  And if all of that was not bad enough, Western gave up more goals than any of the 20 teams in the league, which is simply unheard of.  They even gave up more goals than the RMC Paladins.
