NAIT Brings Home Second Straight Title & 16th in History With 36 Wins in 36 Games

For the second time in 51 seasons, the NAIT Ooks won all their regular and post season games.

In the 2015-16 campaign, the Ooks won 32 regular season games and four post season games. The team extended their current winning streak against ACAC rivals to 42 games (34 in the regular season and 8 in playoffs) with a series sweep of the Augustana Vikings to capture their second straight and a record 16th ACAC men's hockey championship.

On Friday, March 18th at the NAIT Arena in Edmonton, John Dunbar pocketed a pair and Connor Hoekstra netted the winner with 5:51 gone in the first overtime as the NAIT Ooks shaded the Augustana Vikings 4-3.

On Saturday, March 19th at Encana Arena in Camrose, Jordan Wood notched the series winner with 16:04 gone in the third as the Ooks edged the Vikings 3-2.

The teams split their previous meetings for the Bill Henry Jr. Memorial Trophy with the Ooks winning in 1975-76 and the Vikings winning in 2011-12.

In previous post season meetings, NAIT won three of four semi final series and two of four quarter final series.

In the regular season, the Ooks won three games in regulation and one contest in overtime.
