April 13, 2015

In case you missed it over the weekend former Dauphin Kings Captain and Ste.Rose product Shane Luke helped the Providence Friars capture the hockey program’s first National Championship on Saturday night.

The Friars won the national tournament in a nail biting affair, beating Boston College 4-3. Luke notched an assist on the opening goal in the first period for Providence. Boston College then went on to break an NCAA record, scoring two goals in just four seconds to take the lead into the 1st intermission.

The two teams each grabbed a goal in the middle frame setting up for a tight finish. At the 11:24 mark in the third the Friars tied things up on a weird one. D-man Kyle McKenzie flipped the puck into the offensive zone to get a change in. The puck went high in the air and was then juggled by BU goaltender Matt O’Connor, who dropped it and allowed it to find its way into the BU net. Providence scored two and a half minutes later off a face off. Then held on for the 4-3 victory.

Here’s a FREE interview with Shane Luke…

As you heard, this was Luke’s final season with the Friars. In 128 games the Ste.Rose product had 33 goals and 48 assists for 81 points since 2011.

Before Providence, Luke played four seasons for the Dauphin Kings. He served as team captain for the 2010-2011 season and led the MJHL in scoring during his last two seasons, including the 2009-10 campaign when he recorded 29 goals and 72 assists for 101 points. He was named 2010-11 MJHL MVP and 2010 RBC Cup MVP.
