    Maxime St-Cyr is a huge recruit for the Universite de Moncton. Won't start until next season though because he is coming out of pro.

    Alberta are the University Cup favourite heading into the season IMO.

    I'm leaning towards USask, but Alberta looks good to - one of them in the final for sure.

    Calgary supposedly had a great recruiting year as well. Might not be enough though.

    Did Saskatchewan add any big names?

    You bet. It is all posted [HERE]. Seven guys, including a 3rd goaltender from the WHL.

    There is a major arm's race in the CW this year. MRU may be a touch weaker and UBC holding steady. But the rest look stronger, barring any departures before graduation.

    This is actually a next season recruit, and pretty good one for Moncton if true - as per Victor Findlay -

    According to Victor Findlay, the rumour is that UNB is very interested in Defenceman T.J. Melancon.

    The backend is rock sold . Obviously, Melancon would be an asset for next year, but a sniper would be more of what is needed, at this point, especially if Clapperton is out for an extended time.

    Charlie Graham was a goalie with the Ryerson Rams la year and put up pretty good numbers. It was his first season but now I can't find him anywhere. Anyone know?

    I looked in all the obvious places, as I'm sure you did. No sign of him at all.

    I don’t think you say no to 3-5 years of a good player just because it creates a roster issue for 3 months.

    Remember, the year they got Clapperton they desperately needed a defenseman and were in really good shape at forward.

    Question - When you come out of junior and play half a season of pro before going the university route in January...are you still eligible for the CHL package?

    Yes. You have an 18 month window to start using the education package.

    Had to go digging, as I was told a pro contract ends the education package.

    Not sure how up to date this is, as there is nothing on the CHL's pages (QMJHL, WHL, OHL) that specifically states it, I have found another article from 2012 that says that a pro contract ends the availability of the education package. That being said, it only considers a pro contract to be from the AHL or NHL, so if you sign in the ECHL, you would still have 18 months to decide to use your education package.

    Alexandre Goulet, Jacksonville ECHL has left the team. Is he heading to UNB?

    Cristiano DiGiacinto, Jacksonville believed headed to Acadia in January. However with Goulet and one other top ,player leaving will he be coerced to stay?

    From UNB's Twitter feed this morning:
    If I were a betting man, I would be putting my money on a recruit announcement!
