Just signed my first pro contract in 8 years. I'm off to Sweden for the 2011-2012 season. Thanks to everyone for their support.

Third tier? I know he wasn't in the greatest shape last season, but I'm still sure he could do better than that.

He still has all his skills, conditioning isn't the best but if he gets that back he's still a very efficient grinder.

Looks like he signed with IFK Ore in Division 1. Like mentioned above, little surprised by this, I thought he would be in Allsvenskan.

IFK Ore is based in the small village of Furudal, which is a little over 300 kilometres north of Stockholm. The team plays out of the 32-year-old Furudals Hockeycenter, which has a capacity of 796. It averaged 169 fans per game last season.

lovely huh ?

So in other words he'll see bigger crowds than he's seen at SMU the last 2 years.

Mike Danton was instrumental in St.Mary`s National Title win in Thunder Bay a couple of years ago and was a solid 2 way player.

Not nice, Timbit.....I saw games at the Forum where they would get 2 to 3,000 people or so....in fact, I think they had a fund-raising night for sebasian savage which drew well over 3,500 fans....how he's doing BTW.....? Halifax is a good hockey town..the huskies just don't do anything to promote themselves which is too bad....

Haha, yeah I know they do get good crowds often but it usually won't happen just for a game, has to be either playoffs or an extra special night.

Sebastien is doing fairly well, still in school working on his social workers bachelors, he's regained a lot of movement in his arms tough his wrists are still weak (last I heard anyhow) he can function for the most part by himself. He was living alone, with his girlfriend, in an apartment in Ottawa last I heard.

No worse no better than Dal; It is still a tough sell compared to Moncton. Consider there are a full slate of programs on at Saint Mary's including the million dollar football program. As AUS Fan pointed out before, there were a number of reasons of which most of us had no idea prior, why the coaching staff don't try very hard. I won't mention all of them, But one of them was basketball and football are two mainstays of St. Mary's that go way way way back, and whereas the hockey team has one NC these guys have three each, going back to some very crucial years. Another is we are dealing with two quality university programs to offer to the the undecided public. A semi ( I guess ) pro basketball league that arrived just in time off of the NC season, at times three junior A teams, Three Major Midget teams, and of course the "you know who's" that even in their worst seasons completely out draw EVERYONE. There are at least a dozen high school teams in Metro alone. Last but not least, when the university did cut a sport this year, they were taken to task by the whole world no less, reinstated the team, but the hockey team itself is contributing 10,000 dollars to the cause per season for the next three...that's 30K they might use for something else including a little marketing? And there is so much more, but once again, this is the wrong thread.

It's nice to know that UdeM hockey has little competition in Greater Moncton/Southeast NB for the entertainment $
Even if 2/3rds of the population can't even pronounce Aigles Bleus properly
