AUS Season Begins Tonight

The 2018-2019 AUS regular season kicks off with a pair of games tonight - Moncton at UPEI and Acadia at Dalhousie - and there are a number of season previews to get you ready for all of the action.

- Bruce Hallihan of the Daily Gleaner (subscription required) is back with his 27th annual AUS Preview, which continues to be the most comprehensive and in-depth preview of all seven teams. As usual, it is an absolute must-read and an indispensable resource for any fan of the league.

- Glenn MacDonald of the The Chronicle Herald looks at the four Nova Scotia-based squads.

- Jason Malloy from The Guardian previews the UPEI Panthers.

- The crew from Acadiaaxemenhockey.com runs down the new-look Axemen.

UNB opens their season at home on Friday night when they welcome the UPEI Panthers to the AUC for a 7PM puck drop. If that alone isn’t enough to get you to the rink, the 50/50 pot for the game will start at $2386 due to an unclaimed prize from a University Cup game.
