Reds add Chisholm
The Varsity Reds men’s hockey team officially announced last week that they have added veteran defenseman RD Chisholm to their roster for the 2014-15 season.
Chisholm, 24, has spent the past four seasons playing with the StFX X-Men where he recorded seven goals and 19 assists in 75 games.
“RD is a solid veteran presence who adds leadership and depth to our lineup,” said UNB head coach Gardiner MacDougall in a press release. “He’s come to UNB with a fantastic attitude, is in great physical condition and can help us in a lot of situations especially with his skating.”
The Reds also announced that first year players Colin Suellentrop and Chris Caissy have returned to the team from NHL camps.
