X-Men host Acadia in final home game of 2017

The StFX men's hockey plays their final AUS home game before the Christmas break.

They host the Acadia Axemen.

The X-Men (12-1-2), who have won four straight, are tied with UNB for top spot in the seven-team conference with 26 points, five points ahead of third-place Saint Mary's; the Axemen (9-4-1) are fourth with 19 points.

StFX is ranked fourth in the country; Acadia is seventh.

Brad Peddle, the head coach of the X-Men, tells The Hawk they need to play their own game.

"They've got a high-powered offense and we can't get caught up in how they want to play," he says. "We just have to be real solid two-ways; force the issue and use our forecheck to create our chances against their defence."

StFX has a 2-1 edge through the first three games of the season series between the teams.

Puck drop at the Keating Centre in Antigonish is 7 p.m.

The X-Men finish the first half of their season with a pair of road games.

 

Pirates, Privateers play in Port Hawkesbury

The Strait Pirates host the Liverpool Privateers in the Nova Scotia Junior Hockey League.

The Pirates (7-6-3), with wins in two of their last three games, are third in the five-team Sid Rowe Division with 17 points, five points behind Pictou Co. for second, and five points ahead of fourth-place Antigonish; the Privateers (11-6-0) are fourth in the six-team Fred Fox Division with 22 points.

Taylor Lambke, the head coach of the Pirates, tells The Hawk they're up against a hard-working, veteran team.

"I think they're an offensive group; they're more of a veteran team," he says. "They're looking to do some good things this year; they work pretty hard for the most part- I think we're going to have to be ready to go because it's a big game for them (and) it's a big game for us as well."

It's the first game of the season between the teams.

Puck drop at the Port Hawkesbury Civic Centre is 7:30 p.m.

The Pirates travel to Membertou to meet the Miners Sunday night.
