- Lakehead has added a hometown goalie, Alex Dupuis. He backstopped the Summerside (P.E.I.) Western Capitals to an appearance in the RBC Cup last spring. Third-year man Kyle Moir is slated to take over as the No. 1 'tender in T-Bay. (press release)
- Money quote from Montréal Alouettes defensive back Paul Woldu on Saskatchewan (he's a former Huskie): "All we know is how to block and how to tackle. It's a good stereotype to have." (Regina Leader-Post)
- The stuff which gets overlooked when one jets off for a week: Samuel Giguère (Sherbrooke) saw duties as a return man for the Indianapolis Colts. One beat reporter said he "didn't show enough of a burst" to rate being given the job. (Indianapolis Star, RDS.ca)
- Mark Wacyk looks at the Lakehead Thunderwolves, who should come together around two super sophs, point guard Greg Carter and power forward Yoosrie Salhia. There is also the 6-foot-5 guard from Arkansas, Matt Nagy (as previously noted), but another U.S. player, 6-2 guard Joe Jones, could bear watching. (cishoops.ca)
- Mark also some updates via recruiting news gurus Barry Hayes and Jim Thomas:
Guard Brady Heslip (Raptors coach Jay Triano's nephew) is committed to play for Boston College (instead of the Guelph Gryphons), as previously noted.
Adam Jespersen, a forward from London who played at the University of Hawai'i, seems likely to play for the Western Mustangs after sitting out his transfer season. Jespersen was initially thought to be headed to Carleton. (cishoops.ca)
