Vossen’s goal gave the Redmen a 4-3 victory over the Western Mustangs to end a solid four days of Canadian Interuniveristy Sport hockey at the Aitken Centre.
The Mustangs opened the scoring in the first period but the Remen would tie it up to make it a 1-1 affair after one. McGill then took a 3-2 lead in the second, setting up an entertaining third period.
At 12:46 of the third, former Chicoutimi Sagueneen Francis Verreault-Paul absolutely steamrolled Western goaltender Josh Unice. Verreault-Paul was given a five-minute major and 10-minute game misconduct, giving the Mustangs a huge opportunity. Western would indeed tie it at 14:18 to send the match into OT.
With four minutes left in overtime, Vossen scored the University Cup clinching goal to give one of the oldest teams on the planet their first CIS title.
Picard-Hooper was named to the tournament all-star team. He led the tourney in scoring with one goal and five assists.
McGill also features the legendary Hugo Laporte. There was a scary moment in the game when Laporte took a puck square in the face but he would stay in the game. He was seen sporting a big bandage when the match ended.
