V-Reds Heading (Canada) West?

Edmonton Oilers colour analyst (and former Alberta Golden Bear Communications Officer) Bob Stauffer recently speculated that the V-Reds might be making the trip west to Alberta to play the Golden Bears and Dinos.  If you visit the Calgary Dinos website and check their September schedule, you'll find two games listed vs. UNB, first on Wednesday the 15th, and later on Saturday the 18th.  Nothing confirmed from Alberta, but it'd be a shame if these two titans didn't meet in exhibition play.

Let's cross our fingers that if this all materializes, both the Dinos and Golden Bears return the favour and come to UNB for a few exhibition games in the future.

Of course, odds are we'll see be seeing one, if not both teams in March.

Yes - UNB is going west, but the offical announcement (dates and teams, not just vs Calgary) will be announced in a few weeks. In the mean time we'll just have to wait and speculate ;)

I can confirm the rumours are true - UNB will head to Alberta for a game against the Bears and Dinos in September. More details at South Campus Sports: http://www.southcampussports.com/2010/07/bears-dinos-to-host-unb.html
