Storybook Season

Last year at about this time, I interviewed the captain of the McGill Redmen hockey team for our show, Focus Montreal. They had made it to the championship game only to lose to UNB.

The Redmen had a wicked season and made it back to the championship game this year, winning the CIS championship against Western!

McGill women have already established the superiority of their team and hockey program, but it’s the first time the school has won a men’s national hockey title. Congratulations to my alma mater!

I interviewed team captain Evan Vossen again this year and it was an entirely different interview; positively storybook!

Evan was playing in the final game of his five year university hockey career, in overtime of the championship game, when he scored the game-winning, tournament-winning, championship-winning goal! What a tremendous way to cap off his McGill hockey career. I wish him equal success in his future hockey and professional endeavors!

It was a pleasure speaking with Evan and so exciting to see McGill win the national title.
