No. 9-ranked McGill Redmen off to an 8-3-2 start
=============================================================
The McGill men's hockey team is off to a good start in their 127th season,
with a record of 11 wins, four losses and two ties. In regular season play,
they team is second in the OUA Far East division with an 8-3-2 record, only
four points back of UQTR.

At the new and improved McConnell Arena, McGill is 7-1-2 overall and entered
the exam break with a current 5-0-2 undefeated streak on home ice.

The Redmen are composed of eight seniors, four juniors, eight sophomores and
six freshmen. Only three players have not returned from last year, including
defenceman David Bahl, plus forwards Patrick Bilodeau and Adam Aleshka.

Heading the list of McGill returnees is veteran David Burgess, a shifty,
play-making all-star centre who scored 14 goals and added 30 assists in 31
games overall last season.

Other high-scorers include sophomore Greg LeBlanc, a 5-foot-10, 195-pound
winger from Lévis, Que., who posted an impressive 16-16-32 record in 32
games during his rookie campaign, and junior Joel Bergeron, a 6-foot-1,
200-pound native of Smooth Rock Falls, Ont., who had 13-13-26 in 31 games.

Also returning are seniors Paul Theriault (8-12-20) of Ste-Foy, Que., and
Jocelyn Perreault of Drummondville, Que., plus juniors Chad Blundy of
Oakville, Ont., and Kyle Hickey, a 6-foot-4, 205-pound native of Edmonton.
Back for their sophomore year are Mark Debusschere of Stoughton, Sask.,
Bruno Lemire of Hull, Pierre-Antoine Paquet of Cap Rouge, Que., and Doug Orr
of Newmarket, Ont., a nephew of NHL Hall-of-Famer Bobby Orr.

David Lizotte, a senior from Drummondville, Que., is back after posting a
5-19-24 record in 32 games. Other returning seniors include Adam Shell of
Thornhill, Ont., and Scott Giroux, a 6-foot-2, 200-pound native from
Weyburn, Sask. Also back are juniors Daniel Jacob (103 PIMs), a 6-foot-6,
220-pounder from Lévis, Que., and Alexandre Page, a 6-foot-1, 222-pound
native of Ste-Basile-le-Grand, Que.

=============================================================
Raymond breaks Bobby Bell's coaching record
=============================================================
With the victory over Brock on Nov. 15, Redmen head coach Martin Raymond
became the all-time winningest coach in McGill's illustrious hockey history.

Raymond, 35, is in his eighth season behind the McGill bench and enters the
Christmas break with a 140-105-20 record overall.

The 140 victories move him ahead of the legendary Dr. Bobby Bell, a 1997
inductee in the McGill Sports Hall of Fame who racked up 137 wins over three
coaching stints with the team: 1929-37, 1942-43, 1944-45.

Both Dr. Bell and Coach Raymond also played for the Red & White.

Bell, who was born in Westmount, Que., in 1903 and died in Montreal in 1948,
played seven seasons for McGill (1922-28 and 1929-30).

He coached the team to a 137-58-25 record, winning six Queen's Cup titles.
The Redmen MVP trophy, known as the Dr. Bobby Bell Bowl, was shared by
Martin Raymond and Patrice Tremblay in 1991-92.

the victories were credited to both coaches)

=============================================================
Jan. 11 Winter Carnival Game expected to be a sell-out!
=============================================================
Oldtimers out there will remember the good old days when Winter Carnival
Week was a great time on the McGill campus, full of spirit and culminating
in a great hockey game at McConnell Arena.

Last year, thanks to the efforts of Brian Miller and the backing of FMH, the
Carnival Game was a very successful event with Redmen alumnus Dick Irvin on
hand for the ceremonial faceoff.

This year, Brian Miller and Arash Madani (the new McGill promotions man)
have made it their mission to make the Carnival Game even better with the
Toronto Varsity Blues in town to take on the Redmen on Saturday, Jan. 11 at
7 pm.

=============================================================
Burgess becomes McGill's all-time assist king
=============================================================
At the exam break, captain David Burgess, a fifth-year senior from Crystal
City, Man., leads the Redmen in scoring with 9-16-25 in 18 games overall.

In a 1-0 win at York on Nov. 23,he became the all-time assist king in McGill
history. With an 87-148-235 record in 158 career contests, Burgess broke the
mark set by current Redmen head coach Martin Raymond, who racked up 144
points between 1987 and 1992. Both Burgess and Raymond accomplished the feat
in 154 games.

The 235 points puts Burgess third on the McGill all-time list, 19 behind
Raymond (253). The all-time McGill points leader is Tim Iannone, who had 267
from 1986-90.

A NOTE FROM THE PRESIDENT OF FMH
=============================================================

Dear Friends,

Our marketing marvel, Brian Miller, packed the house again for our 5-2
victory over Queen's on November 1. The sell-out crowd was primed by Steve
Chioda of the Athletics Dept., who found a great, enthusiastic high school
band (sponsored by FMH), which set the tone perfectly for hammering the
Golden Gaels that night.

The Athletics Dept., is using Brian's formula from this and his Corey Cup
success of last year for an upcoming match vs. U. of T on January 11, so,
come join the fun.

The Redmen have some very exciting rookies and veterans that have meshed
well already, proven by the teams 8-3-2 start in league play.

Last June, the Redmen Hockey and Football Alumni Golf tournament was once
again a great success. Well run, well attended and well funded, accolades
to Greg Koegl, Ed Darche and coach Martin Raymond on the hockey side.

The McConnell Arena lounge decoration is well under way with many team
photos and other mementos. More are needed. If you have something to add,
please contact Coach Raymond.

Bert Hould was at the FMH Alumni Weekend and reiterated his suggestion that
another special promotion like the Herb Madill one should be done. We tried
for Ken Tyler this year but, alas no luck there on scheduling yet. In 2003,
we will focus on recognizing the Redmen teams from the '03 years (e.g. '93,
'83, '73, '63, '53, etc.).

On the website, we are fortunate to have found two people to bring our
website up to snuff. Matt Humes, along with Charles Chang have updated and
revamped the website. The new and improved one should be available in the
new year.

Dave Gourde has made good progress on the FMH Honour Roll display for the
Redmen dressing room. The brass nameplates were organized by Gavin Ross and
look very classy. The wall will serve as a tribute to our benefactors and a
reminder to the current team of who their friends are. A donation to the
Redmen of either $500 in one year or $1,000 over four years (dating back to
the 2000 Arena campaign) will qualify you. We expect the wall to be up
early in the second half of the season.

Sometime ago we floated the idea of a Redmen hockey endowment fund (perhaps
named after Jack Gelineau) and funding of athletic awards. This is winding
its way through the McGill process. We hope to see some funds remaining
from the arena campaign to boost the fund. Tentatively, pending McGill
approval, the priority would be awards to players.

On the social calendar mark down Saturday, January 11 vs. Toronto and Sunday
January 26 vs. Trois-Rivieres. The Redmen Awards Banquet will be on April
25 at Molson's and the golf tourney is slated for June 2 at Beaconsfield
again.

Friends, we thank you for your support, annual gifts, special donations and
more that you put into the McGill Redmen Hockey program.

As Johnny "Hog" Harris says (paraphrased slightly) "It is a privilege and
not a right to be a part of the Redmen family".

Sincerely,

Mike Nelson

President,
Friends of McGill Hockey

p.s. Write us a cheque before you put this away! We'll all be glad you
did.

Coach's Corner with Martin Raymond
=============================================================

Dear Friends of McGill Hockey,
It is with great excitement that we embarked on our 127th hockey season in
September. With a large group of returning players, as well as a strong
incoming crop of recruits, my coaching staff and I trusted that we had the
ingredients and experience to challenge for the national championship. So
far so good as we entered the December exam break in second place, ranked in
the nation's Top 10 with an 8-3-2 league record.

It was also great to see the former Redmen who participated in our
Homecoming Weekend in October. It was a weekend of good memories and
enthusiasm from both the older and younger "boys".

I encourage you to send in your donations (if you have not yet done so) to
support the Friends of McGill Hockey. Your financial assistance is crucial
to the success of our team. Your gifts help finance the team's needs which
are above and beyond the allocated budget provided by the Department of
Athletics.

To give you an idea, some of our equipment costs are as follows: helmets
$60, stick shafts: $100, jerseys: $125. As for travel costs: each team
meal: $400, each hotel night on the road: $1,000.

These items, and various others, are strongly subsidized by FMH.

On behalf of the team, I sincerely thank all of those who have supported
FMH, and provided us with a better opportunity to be successful, both on and
off the ice. In order for us to become the best university hockey program in
the country, we rely on your continued support.

Finally, a special thanks to Bauer Nike Hockey for their contribution
towards our equipment needs. Our relationship with their testing programs
has resulted in us receiving high-end equipment (e.g. skates and one-piece
shafts) for our players which has improved each player's confidence and on-
ice performance. We feel very fortunate to have them on our side.

Best wishes for the holiday season,
Martin Raymond

New look website
=============================================================
The Redmen hockey website has been redesigned by McGill grad and computer
whiz Charles Chang, under the guidance of ex-McGill goaltender Matt Humes.
The site, which is hosted by Openface Internet Inc., a company which
employs ex-Redmen defenceman Martin Routhier, can be viewed at
www.redmenhockey.com, is expected to be fully functional in January.

=============================================================
Farquharson inducted to Hall of Fame
=============================================================
The late Hugh Farquharson, who played in the NHL for the Montreal Canadiens
in 1934-35 and for Canada at the 1936 Olympics in Germany, was among seven
new inductees enshrined into the McGill Sports Hall of Fame during
Homecoming week, increasing the total number of honourees to 52 since the
Hall opened in 1996.

Farquharson, who died in 1985, entered McGill at age 15 and was a forward
with the Redmen from 1927 to 1934, helping then win four championships in
six seasons. He later played in the NHL for the Montreal Canadiens in
1934-35 and for Canada at the 1936 Olympics in Germany, where he was the
leading scorer in the Olympic hockey tourney.

Other inductees included Cameron Grout who swam for Canada at the 1960 Rome
Olympics, Jim Miller, a Golden Gloves heavyweight boxing champion and a
defensive lineman who played for the Alouettes from 1953 to 1958, Colin
Adair, an intercollegiate and provincial squash champion who competed for
Canada at two world championships, plus Vaughan McVey, selected in the
builder category, who was an all-star centre and linebacker. He later went
on to coach the Redmen and found the Friends of McGill Football support
group.

Two others inducted posthumously, included Canadian Davis Cup tennis great
Laird Watt and F. M. Van Wagner, a physical education professor for more
than three decades at McGill, who coached the track and basketball teams and
was inducted as a builder.

=============================================================
Babcock returns to Montreal with NHL team
=============================================================
Mike Babcock, a former captain with the Redmen, was behind the Anaheim bench
for the National Hockey League game between the Mighty Ducks and the
Montreal Canadiens at the Bell Centre on Oct. 29.

The 39-year-old native of Saskatoon was named head coach of the Ducks on May
22, 2002 after being elevated from Anaheim's AHL's farm team in Cincinnati,
where he had coached for the previous two seasons. He replaced Bryan Murray,
also a McGill graduate, who gave up the coaching reigns in April to become
the team's senior vice-president and general manager.

Babcock is the third McGill player to coach an NHL team and the first since
George Burnett guided the Edmonton Oilers in 1994-95. Burnett, who also
served one season as an assistant coach in Anaheim in 2000-01, is currently
in the OHL as coach and GM in Oshawa.

Hall of Famer Lester Patrick was the first McGill player to coach an NHL
team. He played hockey at McGill from 1900 to 1905 and later coached the
New York Rangers from 1926 to 1939.

Babcock has a distinguished coaching career, including a stint with the
Canadian national team that won a gold medal at the 1997 world junior
championships in Geneva, Switzerland.

A two-time all-star rearguard at McGill from 1983-84 to 1986-87, he
graduated with a bachelors degree in physical education and a post-graduate
diploma in sports psychology. In 146 career games with the Redmen, he
tallied 22 goals and 85 assists for a total of 107 points and 301 penalty
minutes, graduating as the second-highest scoring rearguard in McGill
history.

Babcock went on to England as a player-coach before returning to Canada in
1988 for a coaching stint with Red Deer College in Alberta. He spent three
seasons at the school, winning the Alberta college championship and being
named coach of the year in 1989.

He moved to the Western Hockey League in 1991 where he guided the Moose Jaw
Warriors for a two-year term. He then served one season as bench boss of the
University of Lethbridge Pronghorns, earning Canada West conference
coach-of-the-year honours in 1993-94 after guiding Lethbridge to their
first-ever appearance in post-season play and a national title with a
34-11-3 over-all mark.

In 1994, Babcock was appointed coach of the WHL's Spokane Chiefs, where he
posted a regular-season record of 224-172-29 over six seasons for a .564
winning percentage. He was named twice as the West Division coach of the
year (1999-20 and 1995-96).

In the 2000-01 season, he began a two-year stint in the AHL and guided the
Cincinnati Might Ducks to a 74-59-20-7 record, including a franchise-high 41
wins and 95 points. The team qualified for the playoffs in each of his two
seasons.

Babcock is the sixth head coach for Anaheim, who joined the NHL as an
expansion team in 1993. Before his time playing days at McGill, Babcock
played for the Saskatoon Blades of the WHL in 1980-81 and spent a season
with the Kelowna Wings in 1982-83. In between, he played a year at the
University of Saskatoon (coached by Dave King) and transferred to McGill in
1983, where he was coached by Ken Tyler.

GOLF TOURNEY RECAP
=============================================================
By Gregory Koegl
The Friends of McGill Football and Hockey alumni support groups combined
their efforts to host the third annual golf challenge at the prestigious
Beaconsfield Golf Club on June 3, 2002. The tournament has become an annual
event geared toward re-uniting old friendships as well as to raise some
money for each of the respective disciplines. Once again, the weather was
outstanding, a great time was had by all and the hockey boys won the event
for the third straight year.

Thanks again to all sponsors, organizers and alumni for their support and to
Ed Darche and Martin Raymond from Redmen Hockey for their invaluable
contribution.

The financial goal was to raise $10,000 to be split by the two alumni groups
and I am pleased to report that we exceeded our goal by approximately
$2,300. Next year's fourth annual tourney will be held at Beaconsfield on
Monday, June 2 and we expect a sell-out once again.

FMH Alumni Weekend Report by Benoit Leroux
=============================================================

C'est avec grand plaisir que le comité organisateur du FMH a accueilli
anciens et amis à l'occasion des festivités annuelles du ''homecoming". Le
tout a débuté vendredi soir où plusieurs ex-Redmen ont assisté à la victoire
de leur équipe aux dépens de l'université Queen's. Une ambiance
électrisante régnait à l'aréna McConnell bondé de partisans pour cet
affrontement. Une réception a suivi le match afin de permettre aux anciens
joueurs d'échanger souvenirs et anecdotes avec ceux qui composent l'édition
actuelle des Redmen.

Le lendemain après-midi, les anciens étaient invités à effectuer un retour
dans le passé dans le cadre d'un match amical. Après ce dur effort, un
buffet attendait nos invités qui ont pu relaxer dans le confort du "lounge"
mis à leur disposition. En soirée, deux ex-Redmen maintenant devenus
entraîneur soit Martin Raymond à McGill et Kelly Nobes à R.M.C. se sont
âprement disputés la victoire. Les Redmen ont ravi les anciens présents en
couronnant ce week-end mémorable avec une deuxième victoire consécutive.

Nous tenons à remercier sincèrement tous ceux qui par leur participation et
leur contribution financière ont appuyé notre organisation vouée au succès
des Redmen.

Words from atop a mountain in Afghanistan
=============================================================
DEREK PROHAR dropped us a line from Afghanistan last April where the lines
of communications were very fickle (to say the least) He asked GAVIN ROSS to
read the following at the Redmen FMH Awards Banquet:

Dear Redmen,
Thanks for giving Gavin the opportunity to read this short letter from me.
I'm currently serving as an Infantry Platoon Commander as a part of the
coalition anti-terrorist strike force in Afghanistan.

Believe me when I tell you that thoughts of my time at McGill, and as a
member of the Redmen Hockey Club, are never far from my mind. I recently
returned to Kandahar from an operation in northern Afghanistan, and thought
I'd take the time to impart upon you a few of the tidbits of wisdom I
managed to pick up on my all to short journey through the hallowed halls of
McConnell Arena.

Firstly, the buisnessman's buffet at Club Super Sexe is not a good idea, no
matter how good a deal it seems, prior to practice (especially if the coach
knows you've been there).

Secondly, never, ever plan on doing anything (i.e. studying) on a Sunday if
invited to go with Gavin to Duluth street.

Thirdly, when a curfew is imposed the night before a game, it will be
enforced, even if it means Marty hunting the offending players down at
Cheers at 3:30 in the morning.

Fourthly, Mike Nelson's business card works equally as well as a "get out of
jail free card" at most police stations around town, that is if you have the
werewithal to use it at the time. And lastly, on a serious note, is that the
times you are living in right now, are going to be the times you remember
the most when you're lying at the top of a mountain in Afghanistan fighting
so that others may have the same opportunities you had. To all of you, good
luck, and God Speed.

Lt. Derek Prohar in Afghanistan

THE PEARL'S GEMS:
=============================================================
Seasons greetings to all present and former McGill players, staff and
Friends... Apologies to PAUL PULVER and TIM IANNONE for omitting them in our
last list of donors to FMH (last newsletter)Š

Among those spotted over the FMH Alumni Weekend was NEIL "Chainsaw"
MATTHEWS, who now has four children and is selling playground equipmentŠ His
brother, BENJIE "Buzzsaw" MATTHEWS is a physician in BostonŠ The usual
suspects, DON ROSS and GAVIN ROSS were both on hand for the weekend, as was
BERT HOULD, who suggested a reunion theme for the 2003 reunion. So we plan
to focus on the teams from 1952-53, 1962-63, 1972-73, 1982-83 and 1992-93Š
JEAN DIONNE let on that his son Simon is studying at a prep school in the
USAŠ Jean, you are formally advised that your son is now on the prospects
list for McGill next yearŠ DAN McLEOD, a former assistant coach in the KEN
TYLER era, was asking the whereabouts of YVES BEAUCAGE (Yves, so where are
you? Time to come on home!)Š MIKE TEOLIS, GM at Duocom (Canada's leader in
audio visual presentation solutions), was also on hand and he has offered to
upgrade the video set-up in the new Redmen dressing roomŠ DAN McLEAN won the
long-distance award, making the trek from Chicago with greetings from TIM
BOSSYŠ

FRASER GAMBLE was wed to the lovely Mardelle in Calgary last August... Among
the Redmen in attendance was his brother IAN GAMBLE (from Vancouver) plus
MIKE NELSON, PAUL BARBER and yours truly... Fraser, you may recall, served
with the Canadian air force in Germany during the 1991 Gulf war, patroling
bases that Iraq had threatened to terriorize as a result of Canada being
involved in the Gulf... He held the rank of captain and had an A2 instructor
rating. He was also a rescue aircraft commander and a maintenance test pilot
to mention a few of his many achievements accomplished after a fine career
with the Redmen... Speaking of Barber, "The Bull" visited Montreal with
Maria and the kids for the annual Jazz Festival in early July... If any of
you are thinking of visiting your old haunting grounds, that event is the
place to be in the summer (open-air pubs, beautiful ladies, thousands of
people and tons of free music in the street)...

PATRICK "RED DOG" KELLY, who plays for the Chiefs in the Thursday night
McGill Alumni Hockey League, has put his engineering degree to good use...
He has patented and completed a prototype for his company's
(www.irumice.com) latest invention, a foil-like rink cover designed to
maximize ice-temperature efficiency for indoor arenas... He is also looking
for coaches to assist in the operation of an elite four-day hockey camp
which focuses on skating skills... The camp is slated to be held next July
at Clarkson University in Potsdam, N.Y...

MARTIN ROUTHIER, is the VP of sales & marketing at Openface Technologies, a
company which designs and supports websites, including the Redmen site (www.
redmenhockey.com)... Among the many McGill grads who worked for Openface
were BENOIT MENARD and MARC THIFFEAULT... I heard through the grapevine that
MIKE FARMER was planning a December roadtrip to Florida with hopes to take
in an NFL game with the Dolphins and a college football game for the No.
1-Miami Hurricanes...

DUFFY RUBIN recently dropped us a line from Boca Raton, Florida, where he
is coaching the varsity hockey team at Boca high school... "Duff" reports
that he has no wives or babies yet but lots of calendar girls in his social
agenda...

DAVID DUCHARME writes that he, Miss Vicky and son Spencer are enjoying life
in South Carolina... "Dutchy" also reminded me that it had been 10 years
since The Pearl won the Ducharme wedding golf tourney and that Larry, his
golfing buddy, still complains about the handicap system that was used for
the event...

ALAIN ROBICHAUD, who scored 30 goals as a Redmen rookie in 1983-84, recently
was honoured for 15 years of service at the Coca-Cola Bottling Company,
where he serves as Area Vice-president, Atlantic/Quebec...

Congrats to PATRICE TREMBLAY and wife Sandra on the Oct. 19 birth of
daughter Maeva...

Got a chance to see a couple of Habs games recently featuring two former
Redmen players with the visiting teams: MIKE BABCOCK, head coach of the
Anaheim Ducks, and JAMIE KOMPON, in his sixth season as a video coach and
strength & conditioning coordinator with the St. Louis Blues...

"Babs", who came away with a 3-3 tie against the Habs on Oct. 29, made time
from his busy schedule to drop by for a brief tour of the refurbished
McConnell Arena and a visit with coach MARTIN RAYMOND... After the game,
Babcock invited DR. JAY McMULLAN, Nels and "The Pearl" into the coach's
office where we were introduced to GM BRYAN MURRAY, a McGill grad who played
hockey for McGill's Macdonald College team in Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue...

Meanwhile, "Komper" pulled an "all-nighter" on the videotape machine at the
Molson (now known as Bell) Centre, in preparation for the Blues game, which
resulted in a one-sided 5-2 win over the Canadiens on Nov. 5... After the
game, he handed me a generous donation for FMH... Kompon noted that GREG
DAVIS "played well in his first NHL exhibition game against a strong Dallas
Stars line-up... He started on the fourth line and ended up getting a
handful of shifts on the first line with Keith Tkachuk and Doug Weight and
getting a couple of great scoring chances. In training camp, Davis played
with Tkachuk in the round-robin tournament games and looked pretty good"...

The last time we checked (as of Dec. 15/02), Davis had a 6-8-14 record in 25
AHL contests with Worcester, while MATHIEU DARCHE was leading Syracuse in
goals and was second in points with a 12-8-20 record in 25 AHL games this
season.
