The UPEI Women’s and Men’s Hockey teams both see pre-season action this weekend at home. The women take on Saint Mary’s University on Friday evening at 7:00 pm. They lace up their skates again Saturday at 2:00 pm for an exhibition game against the University of New Brunswick. The men wrap up the weekend with a game against the Dalhousie Tigers Saturday evening at 7:00 pm.

“The players are looking forward to this weekend’s home exhibition games,” said Bruce Donaldson, head coach of the UPEI Women’s Hockey team. “We had a great game against SMU this past Sunday, so this will give us a chance to start to introduce line combinations and begin to experiment with our special-team play. We are especially pleased to be hosting UNB, as we welcome their team back into the AUS Conference.”

“Exhibition is an important piece of the growth through training camp,” said Forbes MacPherson, head coach of the UPEI Men’s Hockey team. “It gives the team a chance to work on many of the details of our game versus competition. It just gets us one step closer to regular season action!”
