DIRECTOR'S MESSAGE It is the seventh year of UOIT Ridgebacks hockey and we expect bigger and better things from the blue and white at the Dog Pound! As we move ahead, we look to continue to provide the best staff, coaches and students at our campus with the common focus of excellence for everyone. The vision includes our campus being Canada’s leader in athletics, recreation and wellness programs, combined with top flight athletic facilities. All of this will enrich the overall post secondary experience for our students. Our intentions are to deliver a top rated, first class varsity hockey program which becomes an annual contender in the OUA and CIS. This will build a sense of pride and community on campus and will support the successful recruitment of students. The OUA is an exciting brand of hockey and we think once you have witnessed a game, you will keep coming back. Head Coach Marlin Muylaert and his coaching staff are looking to build off a great recruiting year. The Campus Ice Centre, aptly nicknamed the Dog Pound, is the official home of the Ridgebacks and was packed with fans of all ages last year. The twin pad arena complex, located right on campus, has a seating capacity in the main rink for 550 with standing room for another 250 which makes for an exciting atmosphere at home games! There is also an amazing restaurant on the second level (Shagwell’s on the Ridge) that overlooks the ice. Each team also has it’s own specially designed change room, coaching space, laundry and equipment storage. This season, we look to continue building a winning tradition at UOIT with the high caliber of coaching staff assembled along with a highly talented roster we have in place. We can’t do it however without great fans and supporters. We hope you enjoy year seven of Ridgebacks hockey! LET’S GO RIDGEBACKS! Ken Babcock Director of Athletics

HISTORY OF THE QUEEN'S CUP The history of the Queen’s Cup is rooted in Canada’s rich hockey tradition. McGill University formed the world’s first organized hockey team in 1877. By 1886, Queen’s University had also formed a team and played their cross-town rivals from Royal Military College in exhibition games. In 1891, a challenge from the McGill team to The University of Toronto resulted in the formation of the Varsity Blues hockey team. Repeated attempts to form an intercollegiate league were unsuccessful because of the expense and distance of travel. It took 10 years of debate and occasional exhibition games, until officials from Queen’s, McGill, Toronto, Osgoode Hall, RMC, Ottawa College and Trinity University met in 1901 and agreed to form a union for the following year. A new era in the hockey world opened with the 1902-03 season, as the world’s first university hockey league was born. As university hockey teams were still relatively new, the Canadian Intercollegiate Hockey Union (CIHU) officials devised two schedules, one was for more experienced teams and other for intermediate-level teams. The “Senior Series”, as it was known, consisted of McGill, Queen’s and the University of Toronto. The schedule in that inaugural season consisted of only two contests (i.e. a one-game series versus each team). The first league game was played in Kingston on Jan. 16, 1903, resulting in a 7-1 victory for Toronto over Queen’s. At that game, the Queen’s hockey club offered a silver trophy, known as the Queen’s Cup, to be presented to the eventual league champion. McGill opened their season at home on Jan. 23, 1903 with a resounding 7-0 loss to the upstart Golden Gaels. The following week, a wild 9-7 McGill victory over the Varsity Blues, resulted in a first-place finish for McGill. Since there was no playoff format in place (that would come about some six decades later), McGill was declared the inaugural Queen’s Cup champions. The trophy has been contested since the 1902-03 season, interrupted only by the two World Wars. After World War II the league expanded and the OUA now includes 16 institutions (after reaching a high of 17 teams in the mid-1980’s). Thirteen different schools have hoisted the Queen’s Cup. Toronto has claimed ownership 41 times, including 10 straight championships in the 1920’s and 12 of 14 championships from 1964-1975. McGill is second with 15 titles, followed by UQTR (eight), Queens (six), Guelph and Montreal (five each) and Waterloo twice. UQTR, Brock, McMaster, Western and Windsor have each hoisted the Cup once.

UOIT TRADITIONS

Ridgebacks Nickname The Ridgeback nickname represents both the athletes and the location of the University of Ontario Institute of Technology. A Ridgeback is a large and well-muscled hunting dog that is legendary for its ability and use in hunting down lions. Strong and extremely competitive by nature, the Ridgeback is also lightning quick and deftly alert while constantly paying attention to its surroundings. Known as a dominant dog with aggressive instincts, the Ridgeback moves, not only like a hunting dog, but like a dog of prey. It is strong willed and confident that thrives on vigorous exercise and athletic activities. Native to Africa, the Ridgeback is well-known for its ability to hunt large game including lions. In addition to describing the skills and traits of UOIT athletes, the Ridgeback nickname aptly describes the majestic Oak Ridges Moraine just north of campus. Glenn Coady (pictured) submitted the name Ridgebacks, which was selected from over 300 submissions to become the official nickname of UOIT.

Hunter the Ridgeback Hunter the Ridgeback was born in February 2006. Needing an identity for the Ridgebacks varsity teams, the athletic department found this dog and asked the student body to name him. After a variety of names were considered Hunter was chosen. The name Hunter represents the breed’s instincts and reputation as a hunting dog in Africa. Hunter can be found at UOIT varsity hockey games cheering on the teams and dancing up a storm, as well as at events throughout the community. Hunter can also be seen taking part in the UOIT ‘School is Cool’ youth programs at elementary schools across the Durham Region.

The BLUE CREW The Blue Crew has been a tradition since the first time the UOIT Ridgebacks hockey team set foot on the ice. Some of the loudest and most rowdy fans in the OUA, members of the Blue Crew can be seen on game days sporting their distinctive Blue Crew t-shirts and hard helmets. Anyone one can be a member of the Blue Crew, all that is required is the spirit to support the Ridgebacks and an appetite to enjoy the pregame specials available to all Blue Crew members at Shagwell’s on the Ridge.
