    I haven't heard anything. Stop with the rumors until you have solid info.

    Hearing that Hockey Canada has pulled their officials, no officials, no games

    Hockey Canada pulled their officials. Even though there is no Coronavirus in Nova Scotia, yet. Can't play in empty building, like volleyball, if there are no refs. Cowards.

    Just saw on twitter that Hockey Canada has pulled the officials from the tournament. If that is true, then the tournament is over.

    You would think that they would make an announcement, radio silence is killing me. Feel bad for all of the 4th and 5th year players that won't get a chance to finish their season.

    No they did, in between the second and third periods of SMU and Guelph.

    I can't see how that cannot reimburse the tickets, unfortunately, I booked my hotel through hotels.com and it was non refundable :(

    Hey everyone. I understand your frustration over the cancellation.

    Not matter how we feel, it's a done deal.

    Let's look back on a successful season for our teams that got them to the Nationals in the 1st place.

    Let's look ahead to next season and what may be rather than what may have been.

    I've had a fun time reading and commenting on your posts (and chirping the UNB guys).

    Reality has reared it's ugly head in the form of the Coronavirus and that should be our focus for the foreseeable future.

    Take care of your families and friends, especially the elders. When the dust settles, in whatever time frame it may take, we can get back to the business of hockey.

    I wish you all good health and look forward to another year of CIS Hockey.

    It is too bad. For the seniors graduating, for a program like Ottawa that has emerged from the darkness they were in just a couple seasons ago. For Acadia who have had to organize this and have it end up this way. Here's hoping for Acadia that somehow it doesn't affect them too much financially, hosting a National nowadays is a big commitment and now without the ticket revenue and having to refund a lot of what they had received...

    But I agree with AUS Fan, safety first. Now, any body need some ice time in Moncton? I've suddenly got a whole bunch available at the JLL..

    I also feel bad for the players and coaches who will not have the chance to compete. To the 5th year guys at ACA who came back to be a part of this, it must be a bitter pill to swallow. The same would apply to other 5th years as well.

    To the coaching staff at ACA and UNB, whom I know, it's unfair. To Stieny and the rest of the team, after a great 1st game, I feel bad.

    Although meeting UWO in a pivotal game brings back bad memories of 2009. Just kidding, of course.

    Best wishes to all the players moving on. It's a shame you couldn't entertain us one last time.

    Brighter days are ahead. Keep the faith.

    They only have one 5th year, but have 17 3rds. That's what may be the discussion. Beware of rumors.

    Yes - they are a very mature team - they all started together when the program was re-introduced 3 years ago.

    Ottawa has 17 4th years + 1 5th year.

    Obviously some of those guys may come back, but you have to think they are going to have a huge turnover.

    Tournament Update - Game 2

    Will there be a second upset? Now, for most of the initiated, the AUS 3rd place team is generally considered stronger than most OUA teams, so for us (for which I include myself as a member of the 'in' crowd) would not be surprised with a SMU win.

    #3 Guelph(GPH) vs #6 Saint Mary's (SMU)

    Road: Guelph wins the Queen's Cup over Ottawa and the OUA-West series 2-1 over Western
    vs
    Road: Saint Mary's wins AUS Bronze 2-0 over Moncton after losing the AUS Semi's to Acadia 3-1.

    Record: 12th= 17-7-5 (.607) vs 14th = 17-12-1 (.567)
    Offense: 3rd= 4.54 g/game vs 5th = 3.87 g/game
    Defense: 21st = 3.54 g/game vs 22nd = 3.60 g/game

    On paper - these two teams look evenly matched with a slight lean in Guelph's favour. However, despite being the visitor for the game, SMU is playing at home. Have their most dangerous weapon in Balmas back and I think going to win this game.
