Opening day will see the Golden Bears take on the Ravens at 1p.m. and the Axemen square off against the Lancers at 7 p.m.

A new champion will be crowned on Sunday as the UNB VarsityReds, the 2013 monarchs, fell in the AUS semifinals earlier thismonth.

Alberta is the most decorated team in University Cup historywith 13 titles, three more than Toronto. The Edmonton powerhouse,however, is in a mini-championship drought, with its last triumphdating back to 2008. Since then, the Bears have reached one finalin four appearances, losing in overtime to Saint Mary’s in2010. A year ago they settled for third place in their pool as theNo. 1 seed.

The Bears are once again enjoying a remarkable season, one oftheir best in recent years statistically. They head into thenational tournament with a sparkling 38-5 overall record versus CISopponents, including 25-2-1 in league play and a perfect 4-0 in theCanada West playoffs. In the regular season, they led the countryin goals for (5.21 per game), fewest goals against (1.93) and powerplay efficiency (31.9%), while their penalty-killing unit rankedsecond (90.5%).

No less than seven Golden Bears averaged at least one point pergame in league action, including every member of the talented anddiminutive top line of team captain Sean Ringrose (15-21-36),Johnny Lazo (9-25-34) and Torrie Dyck (13-18-31) – all5-foot-11 or shorter. Alberta also has depth in front of the net asveteran Kurtis Mucha (1.87 GAA / .909 SV%), the 2012-13 CISgoaltender of the year, has been sharing playing time all seasonwith promising freshman Luke Siemens (1.98 / .919).

“We are excited to be going back to Saskatoon to competefor the University Cup. Our team feels we have some unfinishedbusiness from last season,” says Ian Herbers, a former NHLplayer in his second year behind the U of A bench. “We haveworked very hard this season, improving every week in a verycompetitive Canada West conference, to give ourselves the bestpossible opportunity to excel at nationals. This will be fourthrilling days of hockey for Saskatoon and CIS hockeyfans.”

Second-seeded Acadia is back at the CIS tourney after aseven-year absence. The Axemen’s glory days at the UniversityCup came in the 1990s, when they claimed the program’s twotitles (1993, 1996) and skated in two other finals (1992, 1998),all in a seven-year span.

This season, the Axemen were neck-and-neck with UNB throughoutthe conference schedule before finishing four points back of theV-Reds in the AUS standings. Acadia had the last laugh in theplayoffs however, taking the AUS final in four games against SaintMary’s, which had eliminated the reigning champs in theprevious round.

Leading the way for Acadia is the dynamic duo of Liam Heelis(24-18-42) and Mike Cazzola (11-31-42), who tied for the conferencelead in points and were both key elements of the AUS all-star teamthat claimed gold for Canada at the FISU Winter Universiade inItaly, last December. Heelis, who attended the Florida Panthersprospects camp last August, was named AUS player of the year afterscoring a CIS-leading 24 goals in only 26 contests.

“We are very excited to be attending the CIS championship.We know that the University of Saskatchewan puts on a first-classevent,” says 13-year head coach Darren Burns, who hascaptured the CIS banner as a player and as an assistant coach.“Our goal at the beginning of the year was to vie for anational championship so it’s an exciting time to representthe AUS and Acadia in Saskatoon.”

What a post-season run it has been already for the WindsorLancers. After finishing fourth in the OUA West standings, theywent 7-1 in the conference playoffs, including upsets overhigher-ranked Western, Lakehead and McGill, to advance to theUniversity Cup tournament for only the third time in programhistory, the first since back-to-back appearances in 1998 and1999.

Windsor native Parker Van Buskirk has been sensational in netduring the playoffs, posting OUA bests in wins (7), goals againstaverage (1.75) and save percentage (.952). In Saturday’s 3-2Queen’s Cup victory over McGill, the former OHL netmindermade 50 saves to lead the Lancers to their first OUA crown since1998.

“We’re pleased to be representing the University ofWindsor at this year’s national tournament,” sayssix-year bench boss Kevin Hamlin. “Our journey has had manyinteresting turns and I imagine there are some yet to come. It wasa real challenge to get out of the OUA. We beat four great teams inToronto, Western, Lakehead and McGill and we are looking forward toan excellent week of competition.”

Fourth-ranked McGill was part of a dog fight all season withCarleton and UQTR in the ultra-competitive OUA East division, withthe Redmen ending up in third place despite a superb 21-5-2 record,one point behind the Ravens and tied in points with theirarchrivals from Trois-Rivières.

After five straight appearances at the University Cuptournament, culminating with the program’s first-evernational title in 2012 in Fredericton, the Redmen missed the eventlast year following the graduation of the core of theirchampionship squad. They are back this year sparked by NewYork-born defenceman Ryan McKiernan, who led the team in scoringand was the highest-scoring rearguard in the country in league playwith a 13-24-37 dossier in 28 games. In the playoffs, all-starcentre Cedric McNicoll, a former 100-point man in the QMJHL whobecame eligible to play for McGill this season after a few procampaigns between the AHL and ECHL, exploded with 16 points ineight contests.

“We are still growing as a team and getting better everyday. We have 23 guys in their first or second year with our programand we’ve put ourselves in a situation where we have anopportunity to win another championship,” says Kelly Nobes,one of only six head coaches in CIS history to take two programs tothe University Cup tourney (Laurier & McGill). “Ourleadership group has been outstanding and we have evolved into amature and resilient group, peaking at the right time. We believein each other. We faced very tough opponents in the OUA playoffsand feel that we’re battle-hardened and ready for the nextstep.”

The tournament can’t start soon enough for hostSaskatchewan, which has already been sidelined for 23 daysfollowing a loss to UBC in Game 3 of the Canada Westquarter-finals, on Feb. 23. The Huskies hope to fair better than ayear ago, when they went 0-2 in front of their faithful fans tofinish third in their pool.

Veteran forward Derek Hulak ran away with the conference scoringtitle this season with a 13-25-48 mark, only two points behind thenation’s lead and 12 more than his closest Canada Westcompetitor. The league MVP will be the top scorer at thisweek’s tourney, ahead of the Acadia duo of Heelis andCazzola.

“We are very honoured to once again be hosting thePotashCorp University Cup presented by Co-op,” says DaveAdolph, the longest serving head coach at the championship with 25years of CIS experience, including the last 21 with the U of S.“For the last few years, our local organizing committee hasworked hard to showcase the CIS men’s hockey game. We want torepresent our school, this organizing committee and our team well.This is our third straight year at the championship so this teamknows what to expect. We are in a very challenging pool with twoconference champions and we will have to be at our very best everyshift to be successful.”

In its seventh season of operation after rejuvenating a defunctprogram, sixth-seeded Carleton qualified for its first-everUniversity Cup thanks to a 7-4 win over Lakehead in the OUA bronzemedal game for a wild-card berth. The Ravens were the hottest teamin the country in the second half of the regular schedule, winningall 13 contests after the December break to leapfrog UQTR andMcGill by one point in the OUA East standings.

The fast-paced, hard-working Ravens are the second-highestscoring team at the championship with 4.54 goals per outing, thanksin large part to super-freshman Mike McNamee, who tallied 37 pointsin 28 league games before adding 13 more in nine playoffconfrontations.

“We are thrilled to represent Carleton University for thefirst time at the University Cup,” says Marty Johnston, inhis fourth campaign at the helm. “We expect very toughcompetition in Alberta and McGill. Both teams have a long historyof success and have extremely deep hockey teams that are wellcoached. We’ll have to be at our best from the drop of thepuck. Our special teams will be a key part of our success as wellas getting consistent production from all four lines.”
