Fresh on the heels of a dominant 2010–2011 season that included a first-place ranking in the OUA West standings, the Western Mustangs look to ice rival Laurier University with vicious checks and precision passes as they continue their campaign for the Cavendish University Cup. Four-time OUA Coach of the Year Clarke Singer leads his cavalcade on a quest for victory, keeping opponents guessing with constant line changes and making sure all his Mustangs’ hooves are properly whittled down to blades before each game. Right wingers Keaton Turkiewicz and Yashar Farmanara assail visiting goalies with a steady stream of slapshots that has them skating among the league leaders in scoring and points. Meanwhile, the Mustangs’ star net minder Josh Unice draws on his experience as a member of the US Junior National Team to fend off pucks and bore opponents into submission with lectures on American history.
