Former Blizz coach MacDougall wins CIS championship

The legend of Gardiner MacDougall continues to grow. The former OCN Blizzard coach won his fifth CIS hockey championship over the weekend with University of New Brunswick.

The Varsity Red captured the national men’s hockey crown with a 3-1 over St. Francis Xavier.

MacDougall’s list of accomplishments are impressive: multiple MJHL champion coach, he’s been awarded the Atlantic University Sport coach of the year three times and was named the CIS coach of the year in 2010 after leading to his team to a 27-1 record (with 26 consecutive wins), and again in 2015.

In 2006, he became the all-time winningest coach in UNB history with 106 wins and in 2014, became the 1st AUS hockey coach to accumulate over 400 wins. Not only that, his players keep setting academic records, too.

Congratulations to Gardiner on behalf of the MJHL and his fans.
