Morning rounds ... requiem for Ross; humbled Huskies

  • The East Coast's top CIS chronicler, Monty Mosher, posits that Mount Allison's diminutive dynamo Gary Ross might be "one of the most underappreciated stars in CIS football history." There won't be much of an argument on this end. (Halifax Chronicle-Herald)

  • The Saskatchewan Huskies are last in Canada West in offence. As Barney Stinson would say, "True story."
    "(Coach Brian) Towriss was quick to point to execution problems, and a wide array of injuries, when asked why the team is having so much trouble scoring. The injury list through the first three games include tailbacks Tyler O'Gorman, Mark Klause and Jeff Hassler, offensive tackle Patrick Neufeld and receivers Braeden George, Cory Jones and Scott McHenry."
    Saskatchewan has had 4-4 regular seasons and won Canada West. They've been in tough straits before. (Saskatoon Star-Phoenix)

  • Saskatchewan Roughriders slotback Andy Fantuz (Western) was named the CFL's Outstanding Canadian for last week. (Regina Leader-Post)

  • Defenceman Ben Wright, a four-year WHL veteran with the Lethbridge Hurricanes, was released by the AHL's Norfolk Admirals. The speculation is that he is bound for a certain AUS team, but as David Kilfoil notes down below, he has opted for Elmira in the ECHL.

  • Former Kitchener Rangers defenceman Myles Barbieri is the top recruit for Ryerson, which has new life with the OUA's expanded playoff format. (The Eyeopener)
