This #FlashbackFriday player is somebody who may be fresh in Cru fans memories, former Crusaders captain Brett Magee.
Magee was with the Crusaders for three seasons with his rookie season coming back in 2013. In his first year, the former Crusader skated in 55 out of 60 games whilst rallying together five points. Year two included Magee’s first AJHL goal coming against the Olds Grizzlies on September 21st. Despite playing in only 32 games that year, Magee increased his point total by three. In his third and final year, Magee took a big leap and played a huge role for the Crusaders, he was named captain by head coach Tim Fragile. The Edmonton native lead his team out onto the ice 56 times and collected 28 points, the most of his junior career.
Once his time was up with the Crusaders, Magee followed his head coach Tim Fragile onto the next level to play for the NAIT Ooks. The Ooks and Magee had a successful first season together making it to the ACAC finals against the MacEwan Griffins. Unfortunately, they came up short after a overtime game winner in game 3 courtesy of Brett Njaa.
Magee was and still as great example of what the Sherwood Park Crusaders are all about. We’d like to thank Magee for his time spent with the Crusaders and wish him all the best in the future.
