Huskies 2 Cougars 0

REGINA, Sask. - The Saskatchewan Huskies spoiled the University of Regina's men's hockey team's Canada West debut at the new Co-Operators Centre, as they defeated the Cougars by a 2-0 score on Friday night.

Craig McCallum and Zach Sim both scored for Saskatchewan, while David Reekie made 34 saves between the pipes for the Huskies to secure the shutout.

McCallum opened up the scoring for the Huskies midway through the first period. The first-year forward was hooked down on the play, but recovered to slide a backhander past Regina goaltender Adam Ward.

The game's only other goal came early in the second. With the Huskies on a 5-on-4 advantage, Sim took a pass from Andrew Bailey and went five-hole, putting the Huskies up by two.

The Huskies ended up 1-for-5 on the power play, while the Cougars were held scoreless on their eight man advantages. Regina outshot Saskatchewan by a 34-25 margin.

The two teams will meet again on Saturday night at the Co-Operators Centre. Game time is scheduled for 7 p.m.

NOTES: About 600 spectators made their way into the Co-Operators Centre for the contest.
