Just looking at the AUS site ( obviously have too much time on my hands ) and decided to parse the rosters. I will break it down by how many players are "listed" on the roster, how many have been "used" and any other info I may have. When I say "available" I mean that they have not played and could be added to the 22 man roster. I would like others to chime in if they have any useful info to add.
ACA - 23 players, used 21. Girman and Macintyre available but I think Girman will not play at all due to long term injury symptoms. Did not play last night: Buonomo, Beaton, Makin.
DAL - 25 players, used 22. Did not play last night: Herrett, Daley, Joyce, Roski.
UdeM - 21 players, used 20. Belliveau is available. Did not play last night: Charland and 1 other as UdeM has 19 skaters listed on the game sheet for last night.
SMU - 21 players, used 21. None available but 1 spot open. Deighan is no longer with the team so the usable roster is 20. Did not play last night: Greene, D'Orazio.
STU - 23 players, used 22. Did not play last night: Thomas, Froats, Zandbeek, Trott.
SFX - 23 players, used 21. Taylor, Claffey are available. Did not play last night: Chisholm, Fortune, Kirkpatrick.
UNB - 23 players, used 22. None available. Labardo and Houde-Caron no longer with the team so the usable roster is 20. Did not play last night: Carroll, Priamo.
UPEI - 20 players, used 20. None available. Did not play last night: Taylor, Beukeboom.
DAL, STU and UNB are at the cap limit. ACA, SMU and SFX can add 1 player. UdeM and UPEI can add 2 players. UdeM, SMU and UPEI are in a similar position as UNB where they will have 2 scratches per game.
From the UPEI press release:
As the power forward has been recovering from injury, MacPherson says he wants to wait until Czinder is fully ready to go before inserting him into the lineup.
“This isn’t an easy league to just jump into, so we want to have Nick in game shape and fully ready to go before we put him into uniform,” MacPherson says. “From what we have seen in practice, we like how he skates and moves the puck. He will be a welcome addition to the lineup
Over the break, I'm guessing. The UNB guys should have a better answer. Looking at the stats he didn't get in a lot of games.
Yeah, he didn't play that much (7 games), but he was relatively productive in that time (3 goals, 4 points). I wonder if it was a school thing, lack of playing time, personal choice...
The production and what he brought to the team might not be overly difficult to replace, but losing that extra body (especially this year with the roster cap) could prove to be significant down the stretch.
