TOP REGULAR SEASON TEAM – FREDERICTON CANADIENS
Looking for Fredericton’s first berth in the National Midget Championship since a run of four appearances in six years from 1988-93, the Canadiens took top spot in the N.B./P.E.I. Major Midget Hockey League behind a smothering defence that allowed just 80 goals in 34 games, a remarkable 36 goals – more than one per game – less than second-place Moncton. Not surprisingly, the goaltending duo of Jean-Michel Belanger and Dan Fraser finished with the league’s top two goals against averages, at 2.07 and 2.54, respectively, while finishing as two of just three NBPEIMMHL goaltenders with a save percentage above .900. The offence was led by Peter Trainor, who racked up 13 points in his last five games to win the league scoring title by a single point over Charlottetown’s Ross Johnston.
