St. Thomas bids for 2014 and 2015 women's hockey nationals - St. Thomas University has submitted a bid to host hockey nationals for 2 years beginning in 2014.   Six other universities across the country have also applied including Manitoba,  Western Ontario, Windsor, McGill, Calgary, and AUS foe Moncton.

According to women's coach Peter Murphy, STU has forwarded an excellent bid and he hopes that the CIS administrators think so as well.   CEO of CIS, Marg McGregor, was pleased with the interest shown in hosting women's hockey nationals.   CIS LINK

This will be the first CIS national championship that St. Thomas has bid for.  GOOD LUCK!

2011 AUS AGM Highlights - Men's and women's hockey at STU will have company this coming year as Cross County has been added to the AUS stable at the university.  This will be the first year since 2002 that hockey will have company.  AUS women's rugby was last played at St. Thomas then.

Men's hockey will utilize a 2 referee system in 50% of it regular season games this coming year.  Also, the AUS will be implementing NHL icing rules.  No touch icing will remain but no line changes will be permitted for the team that ices the puck.  AUS LINK and DG LINK

Memorial Cup Champions - Congratulations to the Saint John Sea Dogs on capturing their first CHL championship and being the first Maritime team to win the Memorial Cup.  New Maryland native and STU hockey school teacher Mike Thomas accepted the cup last night as the Sea Dogs captain.  Congrats also to current Tommie Christian Morin who started off this past year with the Sea Dogs.  I'm sure it was bitter sweet for Christian but we know how excited he must be for his former team mates.
