All six are from the Atlantic region, including Antigonish’s Blade Mann-Dixon.
The goalie, who finished his Quebec Major Junior Hockey League career with the Halifax Mooseheads in 2017-18, will be the first product of the Junior X-Men program to play for StFX.
The other recruits are blueliners Bailey Webster, Adam Holwell and Will Thompson and forwards Will Bower and Matt Graham.
Holwell comes from the Memorial Cup-winning Acadie-Bathurst Titan; he scored the game-winning goal in the championship game.
The X-Men open the AUS season in late September.
