The final goal of Ryan Baskerville’s five-year university career will also be his most memorable as it clinched a third-straight ACAC Championship for the MacEwan Griffins.
On Saturday, Baskerville beat NAIT goalie Brenden Jensen with 9:01 left in the second overtime period to give MacEwan a 5-4 win over the NAIT Ooks and kick off a wild celebration at the Downtown Community Arena.
He also scored MacEwan’s third goal of the game – a key tally in their incredible rally back from 4-0 down in the contest – and added an assist.
Altogether, he led the Griffins with four points in the two-game championship series, also adding an assist in MacEwan’s 5-2 win in Game 1 on Friday at NAIT Arena.
For his efforts, Baskerville – who led the Griffins with seven points in five playoffs games – was named ACAC playoff MVP. It’s a stellar closing act to his Griffins hockey career.
