St. FX Invitational Tournament Goes Tonight

For fans in Atlantic Canada, this weekend's St. FX Invitational in Antigonish offers a glimpse of four AUS teams in action in their final tuneups for the regular season which commences next weekend. Tonight's action begins at 5 PM Eastern as #5 St. Mary's Huskies (8-1), winners of 8 in a row, tangle with Cape Breton Capers (5-2), who reeled off 5 wins in a row off the start of the pre-season before dropping games to #2 Windsor at the Hawk Challenge (Laurier tournament) and at Guelph. The Capers were without 6'4" Paul Blake for much of the Windsor game and all of the Guelph game and his status for this weekend is uncertain. In the nightcap, the host X-Men (4-3), who went 1-2 on their tour of Southern Ontario last weekend, meet UPEI Panthers (1-8), off to a slow start but with several talented new faces in the rotation should continue to mature as a group and could surprise as the season moves on.

Here is Chris Kallan's preview article in the Halifax Daily News.
