U SPORTS Men’s Hockey All-Star Team announced
Interesting opportunity for this squad AUS Fan.
USPORT picked a coach and then said pick the best team. They did not make any regional demands or restrictions. So should be cool to see how they will do This time around. Coach Peddle is a solid coach and will do a fine job! He really understands the value these kids place on this opportunity!
Only thing that bugs me about the process, no not " the process" you hear all the weak minded discuss.....the USPORT process.... the student athletes have to pay to play in the gig? Seems just a little off don t you think?
I didn't know that. I'll ask Stieny or Burnsie how that works. I do recall that FISU in 2007, the player/school was required to cough up some money.
btw, good to hear from you.....
About $850 per for this gig. The schools cover the cost. But I see your point.
It seems ludicrous that Hockey Canada doesn't pick up the tab as they are the reason this team even exists
And Hockey Canada has the money ....
AUS Fan, not all schools are going to cover the cost of this opportunity.
It seems to be assumed but in fact not a reality.
Same as the costs to participate in FISU games.
Student-Athletes are required to pay to play.
I am not for a minute saying this is wrong, just a fact.
The CIS promotes it embrace it embellish it as do the the Athletic programs. They just don't pay for it.
Ask around you will be surprised!
My bad. I seemed to imply that all schools covered the costs. I can only speak for 2 of the AUS schools. Perhaps someone can supply info from SFX and UNB.
Could we see a U sports player or two, if KHL players are noy allowed to participate at the Olympics?
I doubt it. There are enough Spengler Cup level guys playing in Europe.
Does anyone know about TV or Webcasting for the games/ Nothing on the CIS site that I could find.
Edit: TSN GO is doing the games. Not sure if you need Bell cable.
They took Jordon Cooke from Sask to be the 3rd string goaltender at the Spengler Cup last year. I suspect they will draw heavily from the Swiss and other Euro leagues.
Why no Anthony Beauregard? And Auger seems like a weird goalie choice from looking at stats. Can anyone of you guys who watches university shed some light?
Games are supposed to be streamed at tsn.ca
That's TSN GO. You need a login with your cable provider to get on.
CIS wins 3-0. 1 PP goal in 1st period and 2 EN in the 3rd.
They have a SO also. CIS won 3-2. Garlent and Harper both with pretty goals
