V-Reds To Face McGill In Exhibition Action

According to their recently released schedule, the McGill Redmen will host the defending University Cup champion University of New Brunswick Varsity Reds for an exhibition game on Saturday, September 24th. The game will be held at McConnell Arena in Montreal and is scheduled for a 5PM EST puck drop.

This will mark the 2nd time in 4 years UNB has traveled to face the Redmen, having won 7-2 in 2012. Overall, the Varsity Reds are 9-1 against McGill, including 7 consecutive victories. All but three of those games have been held in Fredericton. 

With UNB most likely playing two games against NCAA competition in the pre-season as well as two games over Christmas as part of the annual Pete Kelly Cup this announcement means the V-Reds will only have one more exhibition game due to the new rule of AUS teams only being allowed to play a maximum of 6 exhibition games per season. Hopefully this will be pre-season game at the AUC or we won't get to see the V-Reds in action until the season opener on October 7th.
