Two former Ottawa 67’s forwards, Brett Gustavsen and Curtis Meighan, have found a new home at Carleton University. The duo will suit up for the Ravens men’s hockey program for the upcoming season.
Gustavsen, who played 189 games for the 67’s, finished his OHL career with the Belleville Bulls. The Scarborough, ON native scored 20 goals and added 22 assists with the Bulls in 2014-15; their last season before moving south to Hamilton. He wore an “A” with Belleville this year and showcased his grit by posting 108 PIMs.
Meighan found himself in the same situation as Gustavsen this year, both were traded away from the team they started their OHL careers with. For Curtis though, it was a homecoming. Meighan grew up in Ottawa and played his minor hockey with the Cumberland Grads. He was a great roleplayer for the 67’s this year after coming over from the Kitchener Rangers. He tallied 28 points in 67 games with Ottawa and Kitchener.
Both Meighan and Gustavsen should help fill the void that was left when six Ravens players graduated last year. Carleton Hockey head coach Marty Johnston is looking forward to training camp, as he’ll have four former OHL forwards added to his roster. Ottawa natives Alex Boivin and Brandon Belding have also committed to Carleton for the 2015-16 season.
