    Good question.

    I don’t recall redshirt players playing exhibition games, at least in recent years.

    I do believe, however, that the roster cap doesn’t apply to exhibition games...remember Ben Duffy being allowed to play an exhibition game for UNB at Christmas before having to sit the second half because Halley took the last roster spot.

    Probably unlikely, but if they only play exhibition games I wonder if AUS teams might decide to push hard to recruit some of the few overagers still left out there (there are still some good forwards left, D and G not so much). They could play exhibition games this year and then be ready to go next year after some roster spots open up when guys leave via graduation/pro. I guess it would depend if you think the current overagers left are better than what may be available next year, though.

    Either way...2021 is going to be really interesting in terms of return to play and recruiting. It’s going to be different that’s for sure.

    Trevor Stienburg has been hired as an Atlantic scout by the Seattle Kraken.

    Any idea when we might hear a decision regarding return to play? I think it was supposed to come down mid-November.

    Yes, there was an article in The Chronicle Herald yesterday, saying ( Phil Currie) they need another two weeks, something about needing info from the Health Depts. Yesterday's version was "free" in Press Reader because of technical difficulties with their websites.

    With PEI leaving the Atlantic Bubble - doesn't bode well for AUS Hockey after Christmas. Not sure how this affects QMJHL games in Charlottetown? Hopefully just a deterrent to unnecessary travel and we can all get our numbers under control.

    Good points made here. Couple that with the Mooseheads having someone test positive and postponing a couple of games and it doesn't look good for NS or NB teams to be going anywhere. I'm not an Epidemiologist (although I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express once) but I can't see the case numbers going back to zero anytime soon without some kind of lockdown.

    I’m thinking these recent spikes might be the nail in the coffin for any hope of a season this year.

    The Charlottetown Islanders and QMJHL have received exemption from the province to continue playing regular season games against Maritime Division teams currently approved to participate by their jurisdiction's Public Health protocols.

    Updated this morning that the Islanders will not play in the coming weeks/change to the status of the bubble.

    It will depend on if there is a full season next year. Given the long term projections for vaccination, I'm guessing they can have a semi-normal season. Acadia is "owed" another shot, but will they have the same team as last March? Also, I can only assume that they took a big hit financially with the cancellation and may be a bit gun shy. UPEI, knowing they were gonna host would have built their team this year with that in mind. Same as ACA, will UPEI have a tournament-ready team?
    I think it will be late spring or early summer before we know how the vaccine is progressing and the number of cases nation wide.

    Too many variables.

    I’m hoping, at the very least, Acadia and UPEI have the first right of refusal regarding hosting the next couple of championships.

    Acadia in 2022 and UPEI in 2023.

    Is that a guess or a fact? Remember, you've let us down before.....

    Has there been any talk at all about possible exhibition games in the new year?

    Haven't heard anything, but I haven't really asked either. With the Q not playing until mid Jan it will be after that.
