TOP REGULAR SEASON TEAM – TRURO BEARCATS
The Bearcats carried the momentum from last spring’s run to the RBC Cup into the 2013-14 season, topping the MHL standings for the first time since 2006-07, and just the second time in franchise history. Truro actually finished deadlocked with Miramichi for first overall, but earned the regular season title thanks to one more win (38 to 37). The Bearcats were at their best when the calendar turned to 2014; they opened the New Year with a season-high six-game winning streak, and were a combined 19-4 in January, February and March. Truro was the MHL’s best at both ends of the ice, leading the league with 243 goals scored and just 131 allowed. Tyler Morrison and Jacob Smith both put themselves in the top five of MHL scoring; Morrison’s 69 points were good for third spot, while Smith racked up 65 to finish fifth. Among goaltenders with at least 1,000 minutes played, Jacob Fancy topped the league with a 2.24 goals-against, while his .920 save percentage and 21 wins left him second and fifth, respectively, in those categories.
