The idea that a student-hockey player has a 'job' an is being $500 to turn off the lights at the gym is quite ludicrous and would sure be unacceptable if true.
How to troll first-time poster.
We believe in facts here and not wild, overused and outdated rumours about guys getting paid to turn on the lights. That doesn't happen at UNB, or probably any other CIS school. CIS hockey players can and do receive Athletic Financial Awards (AFA), which in essence are hockey scholarships. If they already have money for tuition from a Major Junior education package, the student-athlete can spend the AFA money on whatever they want. Its all within the rules and most teams outside of the tightwad OUA do it.
