I think UNB fans will have to forget about Ben Duffy for this upcoming year, he just signed a 2-way deal (AHL/ECHL) with the Hamilton Bulldogs.
He's still a possibility at Christmas if the prospect of being called up isn't likely or he's low on the depth chart. He has to decide by early January - otherwise, he has to sit 365 and lose a year of eligibility (so if he plays the entire year - he has to sit all of the 2014/15 season and can play in the 2015/16 with 4 years instead of 5).

I agree though - the prospect of seeing him this season is low.

This also assumes that UNB keeps a card aside for him at Christmas (or play for someone else who has a card or in the OUA/CW conf where there are no cards )

Worth noting that Ben Wright & Marc-Antoine Desnoyers both went pro for half a season and arrived at Christmas. Chad Denny and Josh Kidd also were playing AHL/ECHL, but came in September of the nest season.
