Documentary on hockey's forgotten man debuts Sunday  February 26th, 2016
By CLAUDE SCILLEY As answers to trivia questions go, George Patterson is the solution to a pretty neat one: Who scored the first goal for the Toronto Maple Leafs? Filmmaker Dale Morrisey believes there’s much more to the Kingston man, who not only scored the Leafs’ first goal,... [Read More]

Injuries, Ridgebacks get the best of Gaels  February 21st, 2016
By CLAUDE SCILLEY Ultimately, the Queen’s Golden Gaels’ demise boiled down to two crucial shortcomings. “We ran out of time,” coach Brett Gibson said, “and we ran out of bodies.” Queen’s ran out of time in the sense that there were just two minutes... [Read More]

Gaels rookie bags winner in overtime  February 18th, 2016

Gaels end season with shutout victory  February 14th, 2016
By CLAUDE SCILLEY With healthy defencemen becoming as scarce for the Queen’s Golden Gaels as palm trees in Whitehorse, you’d think they might be concerned as they prepare for their playoff opener Wednesday in Oshawa. The Gaels went into their hockey game Saturday night at the... [Read More]

By CLAUDE SCILLEY The final weekend of the regular season is no time to feel warm and fuzzy about yourself. “That effort is night and day to what we’ve seen in the last couple of games,”  Queen’s Golden Gaels hockey coach Brett Gibson said Friday night, after his... [Read More]
RMC snags double-overtime win over Queen's  February 11th, 2016
By CLAUDE SCILLEY It was cold Wednesday night in the Constantine Arena. With the heaters not on above the stands, it was about as cold as it used to be when it was just the Constantine Rink, the kind of cold where you have to go outside in the middle of February to get warm. A bystander... [Read More]

Close no longer good enough for frustrated Paladins  February 7th, 2016
By CLAUDE SCILLEY There have been seasons when responding to a shellacking with a credible performance would have been sufficient for the Royal Military College hockey team. Not any more. Richard Lim has had his fill of moral victories. “It’s another game that we were in and... [Read More]

Paladins suffer doozy of a Carr-Harris hangover  February 6th, 2016
By CLAUDE SCILLEY If it was, perhaps, inevitable, it is also part of the process, Richard Lim believes, in making the Royal Military College Paladins a respectable hockey team. “This one stings a little bit,” the Paladins coach said, after his hockey team was waxed at the... [Read More]

Three goals by Eric Ming lead Queen's past RMC  February 5th, 2016
By CLAUDE SCILLEY At the time, it looked as if it might be the spark to propel the Royal Military College Paladins into contention. In the final analysis, though, a goal by RMC’s Owen Gill midway through the first period may have been even more beneficial to the Queen’s Golden... [Read More]

Who are they?  February 4th, 2016

Regardless of the motivation, Carr-Harris game is big deal  February 4th, 2016
By CLAUDE SCILLEY For one team, the game represents something very tangible: Two vital points for a closely bunched race for playoff seeding. For the other side, its invitation to the post-season ball long ago dispatched with regrets, the reward is much more esoteric. Victory will be but a... [Read More]
Gaels decide enough is enough; overturn three-goal deficit in overtime win  January 31st, 2016
It was an inglorious way to start a hockey game. Against a team that came to town nine games below .500, the Queen’s Golden Gaels found themselves trailing 3-0 midway through the second period. It was certainly an undignified place for a team that has won two of the last five Ontario... [Read More]

Kevin Bailie outstanding in Gaels' win over Carleton  January 30th, 2016
By CLAUDE SCILLEY It’s easy, sometimes, to be in the presence of greatness and come to take it for granted. Unlikely as it may be that the Queen’s Golden Gaels ever will fail to appreciate what goaltender Kevin Bailie brings to the hockey team, every now and then he provides a... [Read More]
Eric Ming leading the way for hockey Gaels  January 28th, 2016
By CLAUDE SCILLEY There may yet be some good come from the last time the Queen’s Golden Gaels met the Carleton Ravens for a hockey game. From the Gaels’ point of view, it certainly wasn’t apparent at the time. Ten minutes of sound hockey and some terrific goaltending by... [Read More]
Hockey Hall of Fame unveils new look  January 26th, 2016
By CLAUDE SCILLEY Lowell Cochrane doesn’t consider himself a hockey fan, but he knows somebody who is. “My son is keen about hockey,” he said, “so I see it through his eyes.” Through those eyes, Cochrane saw something that intrigued him among the old photos... [Read More]

Eric Ming scores two as Queen's defeats Nipissing  January 24th, 2016

Third-period goal gives West Point win in 80th match with RMC  January 24th, 2016
By CLAUDE SCILLEY Too many times over too many years, hockey teams from Royal Military College would be scrapping to stay in a hockey game, only to give up a questionable goal, the kind that causes shoulders on the bench collectively to droop. Saturday night at the Rogers K-Rock Centre, RMC... [Read More]

After four years, Matthew Beirnes gets another shot at West Point  January 22nd, 2016
By CLAUDE SCILLEY It’s been a long time since Matthew Beirnes played against the U.S. Military Academy Black Knights. It was four years ago, in the first game of the series revival, and it was an inauspicious day for the Royal Military College Paladins. Beirnes shared the goaltending... [Read More]
Army coach revels in tradition of RMC hockey series  January 22nd, 2016
By CLAUDE SCILLEY Two things quickly become apparent, with even just a superficial perusal of the U.S. Military Academy hockey team’s record. For one, the Black Knights play an awful lot of close games. Army has played 22 times this year, and nine times they’ve gone to... [Read More]

Gaels continue to struggle; suffer third straight loss  January 20th, 2016

Gaels comeback falls just short in overtime loss to UQTR  January 17th, 2016
By CLAUDE SCILLEY The stirring comeback staged by his team Saturday night meant more to Brett Gibson than the fact that it ultimately fell short. “You know what?” the coach of the Queen’s Golden Gaels said after his team suffered a 3-2 overtime loss to the Trois-Rivieres... [Read More]
Gaels stung with bitter defeat  January 15th, 2016
By CLAUDE SCILLEY For a while there, things were looking pretty good for the Queen’s Golden Gaels. Twice they’d come back from a one-goal deficit to tie their hockey game Friday night, and when they scored twice in a span of 90 seconds in the third period, they went ahead. Then... [Read More]
Hockey Gaels ready to convince the world they're for real  January 15th, 2016
By CLAUDE SCILLEY There’s a distinction that needs to be made about this edition of the Queen’s Golden Gaels from their predecessors, their coach, Brett Gibson, says. It is subtle, but not at all insignificant. “The difference is we’ve gone up against the great teams... [Read More]
