University Cup Pools And Schedule Released

The CIS announced the seeding and schedule for the 50th Cavendish University Cup tournament today and just as we expected the University of New Brunswick will enter the tournament seeded #1 and compete in Pool A along with the #4 Western Mustangs and #6 UQTR Patriotes. The second seeded McGill Redman headline Pool B, which also includes the #3 Saskatchewan Huskies and #5 Moncton Aigles Bleus.

Also, as we predicted, the Varsity Reds will open the tournament on Thursday evening against the Patriotes. The action gets underway earlier that afternoon with the Redman and Aigle Bleus doing battle.

As the press release notes, there is a lot of experience at this years tournament. All 6 teams will be making atleast their 2nd appearance in the University Cup since 2008 and all but McGill have claimed a National Championship in their history. Should be an exciting 4 days of hockey.
