And not really recruiting news but the Kootenay Ice have fired former UofA player Kris Knoblauch, apparently just a few days after giving him a one year extension through 2013-14. It appears Knoblauch has been interested in pursuing a CIS head coaching job and is one of the final candidates for the Golden Bears opening.
Here is a list I put together of what has been going on since the season ended. Plus we need it for RMC to have an idea of which teams are shaping up nicely. Obviously some teams havent announced anything, but this list is as of 3:45pm, May 26th. List was complied for reading stuff here and on other Junior A and college commitment sites so dont shoot me if not right!
wonder when unb will fill some of the HUGE holes on the point
they have - Desnoyers, Wright, Kidd, ?Corcoran? , ?Denny?
I wouldn't be too concerned about it...they didn't announce anything until August/September last year. I find teams like UNB who recruit a lot of players who may end up attending pro training camps in the fall don't like to announce anything too early in case the player gets an offer to play pro and never do show up at school.

Also, I believe former STU Tommie forward Kenton Dulle, a one-time Saskatoon Blade, is expected to join Saskatchewan next season after red-shirting last season and transferring to the U of S.
I'm pretty sure he is. Played senior this year in Sask, Rosetown I believe.
He had a temper but I loved how he played on the edge. He has great skills and is a great guy as well. I wish him all the best with the Huskies. I will definitely be following how he makes out this year.
