To get you set for this weekend’s Canada West women's hockey action, here are some storylines from around the conference in the latest edition of Ice Chips.
Dinos return home to face T-Birds
CALGARY - The University of Calgary Dinos will play at home for the first time in over a month, as they enter the final weekend of 2016 against the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds.
"After a long stretch of away games, it's definitely nice to be home" noted Dinos assistant captain Heather Berzins.
"To finally get the chance to play in our home rink for a stretch is exciting and will be a chance for us to hit our stride."
The Dinos last played on home ice on October 28, as they've played seven consecutive games on the road. During that stretch, the team failed to grab a win, as they played four different clubs in the process.
Playoff implications on the line for puck Pandas
EDMONTON -- The University of Alberta Pandas hockey team will put their five-game winning streak on the line this weekend, as they host the University of Saskatchewan Huskies, Friday and Saturday night at Clare Drake Arena.
