Full slate of games this weekend

Key games from my perspective include Acadia's trip into Cape Breton for a pair of games Friday and Saturday night.  No word on whether or not Axemen will have 6'6" Justin Boutilier back in the lineup - Boutilier was injured during the Shoveller tournament and did not play last weekend.  Also Capers hope to have 6'8" Scott Jaspers-Fayer back - he did not play in the weekend series at Dal last Saturday and Sunday.  Two biggest games in the OUA tonight are Laurier (7-3) in Thunder Bay to meet Lakehead (8-2).  Both teams love to get out and run with the Wolves much more athletic while the Golden Hawks throw arguably the biggest starting lineup in Canada at their opponents.  SSN Canada has both games in this two-gamer Friday and Saturday night.  U of T Varsity Blues (7-3) travel up to what used to be the suburbs in North York to face cross-town rival York Lions and their athletic lineup.  A Toronto win would further solidify their hold on one of two OUA East first-round byes.  In Canada West, Saskatchewan Huskies visit Manitoba for a pair of games which appear to be the most interesting games out west.  Alberta at UFV is not bad and back in the day Calgary at UBC would have been huge until the Dinos were ravaged with graduation and now injuries.
