Swiston seeks second Cup
Tuesday, March 22, 2016 - Submitted by Peter Lambert
Alberta's roads will be a little worse off this summer with road-crew worker Scott Swiston making use of his time away from Alberta Augustina University to play ice hockey for the Proski Newcastle North Stars for a second season.

Recommended by UAA Vikings team-mate Beau Taylor, Swiston left his road-crew job to play hockey for the North Stars, arriving in Newcastle in June and went ahead to score 17 goals and 15 assists in just 17 games for a total of 32 points.

Swiston also assisted on the goal (along with college line-mate Taylor) that put the North Stars ahead of the Melbourne Ice 2-1 with just 1:43 minutes remaining in the final.

History has recorded that following Humphries’ equalising goal for Melbourne with just 0:31 left in the game, North Stars forward Brian Bales won the cup for the North Stars on a penalty shot in overtime.

Even prior to the Championship win, Swiston was vocally espousing his experience of playing and living in Australia, taking up surfing and forging strong friendships with teammates.

When asked for his aspirations for the 2016 season, the Vikings centre and captain was straight to the point.

“I want another championship," he said.

“It [playing for the North Stars] was one of the greatest experiences of my life.”

Swiston will arrive in Australia in time for the final two team practices prior to the North Stars season start in Adelaide on April 23.
