Its amazing in January of 2012 UNB Added two players who tied for the lead in the WHL in goals with 43 which is arguably Canadas strongest Junior League, the expectations were very high, never player panned out, with Wiebe leaving after a half season, not playing in Nationals, and Wudrick playing once in a blue moon in a year.

Wudrick is proof stats aren't everything, he may have score 43 Goals in the WHL, but he only had 16 Assists. That shows he was parked in front of the net and capitalized on tip ins, garbage goals and power play time, he did not control or carry the puck a lot wash not a brilliant passer and not a great skater.

However Without being able to make a top 6 forward role with UNB, Wudrick was not the checking line type of player, he continued to be a good sport and support his teamates from the stands, but in the end the addition of Campbell pretty much was a message to Geordie saying sorry kid your out, and ultimately his heart is still out in BC.

Its too bad hes a super nice Guy, sure we wont notice his absence now, but if the varsity reds get into injury trouble they sure will miss him
