Annouced quietly almost a year ago, former minor pro and Saginaw (OHL) captain Chris Chappell (F) will join the Warriors this fall. Chappell (6'4", 212 lbs) played 4 years with the Spirit and 3 pro years with the NYR org, including a handful of games in Hartford (AHL).

Chappell was in school this past year, but sat out 2012-13 (mandatory year off for former pro players). He'll likely see time in the top 6 forwards, and he'll be counted on to replace some of the offense left by outgoing captain Kirt Hill.

Bill Hunt was a bit critical of UNB in his editorial today that the press release they(UNB) published was a bit generic. I don't blame UNB actually - it's not even June - this guy could end up anywhere despite having said publicly he is going to go to UNB, so why make a big hoopla about it - “It’s still kind of early, hopefully something will come in the next month or so." - Ben Duffy

So, basically, we're his backup plan. I suspect he will play pro somewhere in the Fall and join UNB at Christmas.

I agree. What else is UNB going to say about this other than "Horray! We're plan B!"?

re: Ben Duffy

Was talking to a guy today who says that Duffy "may" go to Germany. I'll send an email to his dad and see what the scoop is.

Stay tuned.

I wonder how the roster cap in the AUS is going to effect players coming in at Christmas....are teams going to play the first half of the year one player down with the hopes they can get someone at the break/someone they recruited decides to come back?

This is a tremendous insight. The new rule will change a lot of things. It will be interesting to see how teams adapt to the new reality. I like the new rule a lot. It will even the playing field not just in the AUS but have impact across Canada as well.

Gregg Drinnan reports that Dylan Willick is being wooed by McGill and UNB. Great player and captain of Kamloops.

He also notes that Brendan Ranford may get a contract with Dallas. Makes sense given that Dallas owner also owns the Blazers. I am also convinced that any son Of a former NHLer will get a special opportunity to play pro. Their dads have a lot of friends in the old boys network known as the NHL.

Brendan is Bill Ranford's nephew but that connection can't hurt his future much either.

Currie

Any news on where Josh Currie of the PEI Rocket will end up?
The native of Riverview N.B., finished this season with huge numbers in the Q.
Will he end up at UNB, if Duffy goes?

To paraphrase the reply: " Ben hasn't made a decision yet......he hasn't committed to anyone."

I don't believe it will "level the field" as much as the non-UNB AUS coaches hope. UNB will try their best to have the best 22 skaters they can find, and if past recruiting is an indication, their best 22 will be slightly better than everyone else's best 22 (in the AUS). Maybe that leaves a few "depth" guys that UNB won't be able to stockpile who will play for another AUS team, or elsewhere in the CIS, but it won't make UNB any less competitive (in the AUS).

The real losers going forward are the "marginal" AUS players who won't be able to make the roster of one of the top AUS teams. UNB probably won't hold a roster spot for the next Dion Campbell ... a guy who wasn't heavily recruited and worked himself into becoming an important part of the team. A lot of character MHL guys are probably going to have to pursue CIS hockey in the OUA. Does that make sense, forcing Maritimers go to to Ontario to play CIS hockey? All because the other AUS coaches were jealous of UNB's recruiting?

And don't get me started again on how short-staffed these AUS teams will be come February when the injuries pile up ...

Unless something changed the rules isn't in place across Canada.

thats not what i meant. i meant that it will level the playing field by preventing some of the AUS teams who are throwing big money at players from out West and Ontario from signing very good players just to prevent other teams from having them.

You think schools like Alberta don't do the same thing? Its kind of ironic having Canada West/OUA fans complaining about AUS schools outspending them. I really doubt the AUS schools have a financial advantage over the schools in Ontario and the West. The difference is some of the AUS schools choose to put more money into their hockey programs.

You can't possibly logically argue that it is fair to have one conference playing with a more restrictive set of rules than the other two conferences.

Last fall UOttawa basically delegated their varsity hockey program to Tier II status on campus when they announced that football, both men's & women's basketball and one other sport (not Hockey) would be receiving a disproportionate share of the athletic budget. The goal of the Athletic Dept appears to be to have a football team capable of kicking the crap out of UNB's hockey team.

UOIT adds G Colin Dzijacky from the OJHL's Kingston Voyageurs. Colin was a mid season pick up to provide solid games and give OJHL Top Goalie Charlie Finn some rest. Was huge down the stretch for us when we had 18 wins in the last 20 games. Would have been our starter if it wasn't for Finn who has a Division I scholarship to Colgate. Has RBC Cup experience when he played for Humboldt and was a member of the Woodstock Slammers.

Relax Wolf13. I'm not attempting to argue anything about fairness, nor am i suggesting that the other two leagues should or shouldn't adopt the rules re: roster size that the AUS has put in place. all i am doing is commenting on what i believe to be some of the consequences of the AUS decision.

It must be noted, however, that the word on the street is that although Saskatchewan and Alberta do throw some big coin at players (i can't speak for the OUA but i am sure it happens as well) UNB, SMU, SFX and even UPEI are known to toss even bigger coin at top players. Logic tells us that you would not have Western Canadian players (and their girlfriends, who mysteriously get scholarships as well) moving out to the East Coast for a few extra shekels. there is big money involved.
