N O S SEA

The Varsity Blues look to build on last year’s fourth-place finish in the OUA East division. U of T has a large group of returnees, as well as many key recruits that will hope to push the team into a top three position this season. Toronto has two solid returnees in goaltenders Garrett Sheehan and Brett Willows. Sheehan possesses great reflexes and battles on every shot, while Willows is a fierce competitor and is coming off a tremendous freshman year. Veterans Matt Walters and Tyler Turcotte return on defence in 2012-13. Walters led all U of T blue-liners in scoring and has twice been recognized as the team’s top defenceman. He will provide leadership and offence, while Turcotte is expected to play in a shut down role. Cameron Bernier is back for his third season in the Blue and White, while sophomores Tim Halloran and Marcus Yolevski both had solid rookie seasons and are expected to play significant roles this season. Recruits Dylan Heide, Mathew Oakley and Lane Werbowski add depth to the core group of returners. Centreman Rob Kay enters his final year of OUA competition. Kay has put up impressive numbers in the past, but will be required to return to form as the competition at centre is deep. Third-year centremen Blake Boddy, and Michael Markovic as well as sophomore Paul Van De Velde round out returnees in the middle, with rookie Tanner Waldvogel also looking for playing time. On the right side, senior Kyle Ventura will be expected to produce again this year after finishing second on the team in scoring in 2011-12. Sophomores Tyler Liukkonnen, Tyler Von Englebrechten and Alex Derlis are all back on the roster, while Western Mustangs transfer Jeff Brown also adds a scoring touch to the roster this season. On the left wing, OUA veteran Cassidy Preston will play in his fifth and final year. Third-year forward Charlie McDonald and sophomore Kevin Deagle will compete for regular playing time, with first-year players Andrew Doyle and Ernesto Valente expected to contribute as well.

As part of the Varsity Blues family, men’s hockey is one of 44 men’s and women’s teams in 26 sports offered by U of T. The breadths of the Varsity Blues experience and legacy are unmatched at a Canadian university. Tradition, success and excellence are three words that are synonymous with Varsity Blues hockey. The hockey Blues, one of the University of Toronto’s oldest and most successful teams, were formed on January 15, 1891. In 1902-03, Toronto joined Queen’s and McGill to form Canada’s first intercollegiate hockey league. The late Conn Smythe, founder of the Toronto Maple Leafs, was a Blues coach from 1923 to 1926, the first in a number of well-known personalities to stand behind the Varsity bench. Smythe was also a player and Blues captain while studying engineering in 1915. When Smythe founded the Maple Leafs, he ‘borrowed’ the familiar Varsity Blues sweater design for his new team. Other well-known Blues coaches include former Prime Minister Lester B. Pearson (1926-28), Ace Bailey (1935-40 and 1945-49), Justice Joseph Kane (1962-65) and Mike Keenan (1983-84).

HOCKEY

Tom Watt, a major influence in Canadian hockey, led the Blues to nine of their 10 national titles during his coaching career at U of T, which spanned from 1965 to 1979, and again in 1984-85. Watt was a member of the Canadian Olympic team coaching staff in 1980 and 1988 and has been head coach of the NHL’s Winnipeg Jets, Vancouver Canucks and Toronto Maple Leafs. The Blues have played a prominent role on the international hockey scene. The Varsity Grads, a team of former Blues players, captured the gold medal at the 1928 Olympic Games in St. Moritz, Switzerland. In 1968, the Blues earned the bronze medal for Canada at the World University Games. In February 1972, the Blues thrilled a capacity crowd at Varsity Arena with a dramatic 5-1 victory over the USSR student national team. The Varsity presence in Olympic hockey continued during the 1980s. At Lake Placid in 1980, Tom Watt was a co-coach of Team Canada with a roster that included no fewer than six Blues players: Warren Anderson, Dan D’Alvise, Cary Farelli, Joe Grant,

L

Shane Pearsall and Stelio Zupancich. Anderson and current head coach Darren Lowe were Olympians in 1984 at Sarajevo. In 1992-93, after capturing the Queen’s Cup, the Blues lost to Acadia in the national final. U of T’s most recent national title was won in 198384, when coach Mike Keenan led the Blues to a 9-1 victory over the Concordia Stingers. The Blues have won 10 national, 21 Ontario league and 10 additional titles for a total of 41 championships in the team’s history. “During my years in hockey I have been fortunate to have been part of many great traditions. However, the tradition of excellence at the University of Toronto is unsurpassed by any I have seen. It’s great people who have created this great program. Being a part of Blues Hockey is something I hold very close to my heart.” - Mike Keenan, former GM of NHL’s Florida Panthers
