Hockey: McGill @ UNB Liveblog

Team Canada is off today, so no excuse not to join us here for this evening's liveblog of the exhibiton hockey game between the McGill Redmen and the UNB Varsity Reds at the Aitken University Centre in Fredericton. This will be the only meeting this year between the #2 ranked V-Reds and the #3 ranked Redmen, unless they meet again at the University Cup in March.

McGill is coming off a 6-5 overtime loss to StFX last night in Antigonish at the Keating Cup, which was shortened to a one-game tourney after the first game was postponed due to inclement weather. UNB has not played since a 4-0 win over Moncton back on Dec. 3.

UNB is 11-4-0 in AUS conference play, and 19-4-0 overall. McGill is 16-0-2 in OUA conference play, and 21-2-1 overall.

Game start is 7:00 pm (6:00 pm EST), and the game is NOT being covered on radio or webcast.

You can read more about the game on the UNB website, or courtesy of The Daily Gleaner.

  1. This game should show how much local interest in CIS hockey exists in Fredericton. The AUS is arguably the hardest division in the CIS, McGill has not lost in regulation this season and is ranked #3 in the country. This game SHOULD be a near sellout. I don't expect it to be close.

    I would love to be proven wrong.

  2. Obligatory RPI plug: UNB is #1 and McGill is #2.
