The CIS has just released the men's hockey roster for the 2013 Universiade in Trentino, Italy. It will probably be on their website shortly. (Update: here it is.)

  1. I assume an all-AUS roster is by design. What is the reason; do they alternate leagues each cycle?

  2. Yes, every two years it rotates between the AUS, OUA and Canada West men's hockey conferences. On the women's side they normally pick a team made up from players across the CIS. Each conference has their own roster rules; for the AUS all eight teams must have at least one rep and no school can have more than 4 players on the team.

    And thanks to one of our editors for cleaning up my original post. :-)
