The Moncton Wildcats 2017-2018 hockey season came to an end on Friday night during game five of the second round QMJHL playoff series in Fredericton N.B.
After a tough first three games against the Armada, the Wildcats were able to force a game five with a big win over Blainville on Wednesday night 5-4. Due to a scheduling conflict at the Coliseum, Friday’s game was moved and played in Fredericton where the Wildcats season would ultimately come to an end with the Armada picking up the win in game five.
The Wildcats have a lot to be proud of this post-season. Taking on the third overall Rimouski Oceanic in round one, the Wildcats pulled off an upset that most of the hockey world did not see coming and ended that series with a big win in game seven on the road to move onto the second round. With two other higher ranked teams getting swept four games straight in the second round, the Wildcats made another statement, forcing five games against the first overall team.
The Wildcats will hold a fan farewell this coming week for fans to have a chance to say a final goodbye to the players until next season, and to our 20-year-old’s who’s time in the QMJHL has come to an end. Full details on this event will be released in the coming days.
As we look towards the 2018-2019 hockey season, we look forward to exciting times ahead for your Wildcats, and cannot wait to welcome everyone into our new home downtown Moncton in September.
Thank you for your continued support Moncton!
