The RDC Kings finished the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference men’s hockey season on a six-game win streak.
That included a pair of victories to close out the regular season in Saskatchewan against the Briercrest College Clippers.
RDC crushed the Clippers 7-1 Friday and then edged out a 4-3 win Saturday. The MacEwan University Griffins also picked up a win Saturday and were tied with 19 wins and 40 points with RDC for second place in the standings.
Since the Griffins had more regulation wins (19) than the Kings (17), they earned second place and will have a bye in the first round.
