Husky wants shot at hoisting trophy

Saint Mary’s Huskies forward Colby Pridham is hungry for another Canadian Interuniversity Sport men’s hockey championship.

Saint Mary’s Huskies forward Colby Pridham is hungry for another Canadian Interuniversity Sport men’s hockey championship. But next time, he wants the thrill of hoisting the championship trophy high over his head.

Pridham was sidelined with a shoulder injury during the third period of last year’s national semifinal and was forced to watch the final from the stands.

“That was probably one of the hardest things I ever had to do,” admits the 23-year-old former Halifax Mooseheads forward. “It was pretty disappointing and upsetting to get that far, to that game, and not actually being able to play.”

Pridham, last year’s Atlantic University Sport playoff MVP, has helped the Huskies to a second-place record of 10-4-1 with seven goals and eight helpers in 15 games at the holiday break.

He hadn’t scored a goal going into the holiday break his first year at Saint Mary’s, and last year he had only one goal at this time.

“Offensively, there’s more of a role for me to play this year, and defensively, too, we lost a couple big penalty-kill players,” he said. “Something I try to take pride in, too, is playing both ends.”
