Through 24 games thus far this 2019-2020 season, the Sault College Cougars have compiled a rousing record of 19-3-2. Glancing ahead, after an away weekend at Michigan State University on February 7 and 8, the Sault College men will be on the home ice of Rankin Arena for matches against West Virginia University on February 15 and 16.

The Saturday, February 15 game against West Virginia is being hailed as a ‘winter classic’ contest as the Cougars are slated to play host to the Mountaineers in a 7:30 p.m. face off.

According to Sault College manager of athletics Paul Orazietti, the winter classic match is 75 per cent sold out.

Advance tickets, at $8 per, can be purchased at the Sault College athletics office.

As reigning champions of the American Collegiate Hockey Association Division 3 program, Sault College has adapted to the Division 2 level with much success this season — as the Cougars record of 19-3-2 to date certainly indicates.

The incomparable Ryan Vendramin leads all Sault College scorers — and all Division 2, ACHA skaters for that matter — with terrific totals of 49 goals, 43 assists, 92 points in 24 games thus far this season.

Following the fabulous forward that Vendramin is, on the Sault College scoring chart, are Max Khull with 19 goals, 37 assists, 56 points, Austin Rowe with 19-33-52 totals, Mark Tassone with 17-22-39 numbers and defenseman Kaelan O’Flynn with 0-32-32 statistics.

And workhorse Cougars goalie Justin Richer has a record of 16-2-2 to go with a 2.66 goals against average.
