Four Broncos lead Dinos to Canada West title


Four former members of the Swift Current Broncos helped the University of Calgary Dinos men’s hockey team win their first Canada West championship since 1996 over the weekend.

The Dinos scored twice in the final 10 minutes of regulation to defeat the University of Alberta Golden Bears 2-1 in game three of the best-of-three series. Former Broncos forward Max Patterson had an assist on the game winning goal as he led the Dinos with eight points in six playoff games. Riley Stotts was second on the team in playoff scoring with seven points. Defenseman Noah King led the blueline with six points, while Connor Horning had one assist in six appearances.

Stotts led the team in regular season scoring with 27 assists and 37 points in 28 games. Patterson was third with 29 points. King added 18 points, while Horning registered 14 points to go along with a +20 rating. The Dinos had won 23 straight games to conclude the regular season.

The Dinos will now head to the U SPORTS Championship in Charlottetown, PEI beginning on March 16.
