    According to Bill Hunt’s Gleaner article on Joe Gatenby (who arrived in town in mid-August as the team begins training camp this Friday night)....Rassell (LA), Boucher (COL), Simpson (WSH), and Dove-McFalls (CLB) are going to rookie camps next month.

    I thought Washington had already announced their camp roster but perhaps I was looking at a previous year.

    The letter is supposed to be for the city/province/school name, not the nickname.

    I notice the Saturday game against McGill is now a 3PM start...I think it was originally a night game but wouldn’t be surprised if it got changed due to Harvest that weekend.

    Totally agree!!!! - but it looks like someone forgot to tell the design company that UNB hired. We are now the letter 'R'.

    I understand the difficulties of trying to create a logo for a team that doesn’t have a nickname like Panthers/Huskies/Tigers/etc. (wtf is a ‘Red’, anyways)....but yeah, this is kind of ‘meh’.

    Totally agree 110% - I don't like it at all. I will not use it, buy it, wear it, etc.

    A red and black R - we are the Rough Riders or Running Raiders, or Running Rebels, Red Rebels or Rambling Rogues or ....

    They should have stuck with Red Devils the first time around.

    I can also see ... "Heh, when did Ryerson change their colours?" comments.

    I guess I have to wait another 5-10 years for the next rebrand to see if they can do something better - they can't get any worse (but I'm afraid they could).

    OMG.........i now feel deflated.

    This logo is 150% the worst thing they could have came up with. With a lame name like Reds, their focuse should have been to brand the logo with primarely UNB as the focus, not Reds. Even worst it doesnt scream Reds either its a Black R with red trim, just as someone said the Ottawa Red Blacks.

    If I had that logo on a Black Baseball Cap all in all it would be a bad looking hat, the problem is anyone who cared to wonder what my hat was wouldnt have a single clue at was this R was.

    Should have adopted a new teams name with Red such as Red Devils for every team just like Duke Blue Devils.

    Nope - must be a typo. Maybe it's the X/UdeM game on the 18th?

    Yeah that’s gotta be a mistake. UNB is maxed out for exhibition games...and they play McGill at home on Fri/Sat...and I can’t imagine them playing St. FX in an exhibition game anyways.

    Maybe their next logo can be a pirate going "Rrrrrrrrrrrrr".

    Glad to read Rassell views going to school as a high priority.

    Nice game for Rassell tonight in the Kings first game...a goal and at least one assist (he was on the ice for another goal but not sure if he figured in the scoring). Of note, Maillet is also playing in the tourney and wore the ‘C’ tonight.

    Dove-McFalls has played in each of Columbus’ first two games. He scored their first goal yesterday.

    I don’t think Simpson played in the Caps game today.

    Boucher is playing for the Avalanche but they are currently getting routed.

    Boucher ended up scoring a goal in that game.

    Boucher has been invited to Colorado’s main camp on an ATO.

    Simpson has been invited to Washington’s main camp.

    Rassell has been invited to LA’s main camp.

    I didn’t notice Dove-McFalls on Columbus’ roster.

    I see Dubeau was injured for the weekend games against McGill. Parenteau definitely held his own in both games. Hoping to see him get the start for the season.
