Pre-Season Game Cancelled?

As a couple of astute observers over at the U Sports Hockey forum have pointed out, it appears that UNB's first pre-season game, scheduled for Monday, September 16th against Acadia in Truro, has been cancelled as it no longer appears on either team's schedule. The Axemen are now showing a game against Dalhousie the next day.

Ever since the AUS implemented the rule which caps the number of exhibition games teams are allowed to play per year, UNB have never played fewer than the maximum allowed of six. For this reason, it seems unlikely they will not schedule another exhibition game - either during pre-season or over Christmas - to bring them back up to a full slate again.
