Sunday Morning Links

Some links of interest from around the inter-web on this Sunday morning:

- As some have no doubt heard the AUS will be putting a ridiculous roster cap in place next year. Every team will only be allowed to carry 21 skaters over the course of the season. There won't be a limit on the number of goaltenders. As one might expect, UNB head coach Gardiner MacDougall is not too pleased about it. Meanwhile, Chris Cochrane of the Chronicle Herald also gives his opinion on the matter here.

- The Cape Breton Post has a small blurb about Chris Culligan being named V-Reds captain. Culligan, of course, played his entire 5 year junior career for the Screaming Eagles.

- Not AUS-specific, but certainly applies to the CIS as a whole. Scott Fisher from The St. Catherine's Standard has a story about former NHL draft pick, and WHL player, J.D. Watt, who made the decision to play professional hockey and in the process forfeited all of the scholarship money he accumulated throughout his junior career. Watt argues that the one-year restriction that is placed on players in terms of deciding their future - either school or pro - should be eased.

- The Chronicle Herald has a recap of Friday night's games from around the AUS, including some quotes from former Saint Mary's Husky Colby Pridham about playing against his former team.

- Hockeyscene.com has short recaps posted for each of last night's games - UNB/St. FX, UPEI/SMU, Dalhousie/STU, and Acadia/Moncton.
