Canadian hockey women to renew U.S. rivalry

Thursday, September 19, 2013

6-game exhibition series begins Oct. 12

The Canadian women’s hockey team will face the United States in a six-game series as preparation for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.

The series will begin Oct. 12 at Gutterson Fieldhouse in Burlington, Vt., Hockey Canada said Thursday in a release. The teams will face off again Oct. 17 at the Centre d’Excellence Sports Rousseau in Boisbriand, Que.

“The rivalry between Canada’s national women’s team and the U.S. women’s national team is one of the most exciting and intense in hockey,” said Hockey Canada chief operating officer Scott Smith.

“We look forward to travelling south of the border to take on our talented American competitors, and welcoming both the U.S. team and our fans to the province of Quebec for some of the best women’s hockey in the world.”

The teams will play Dec. 20 at the Ralph Engelstad Arena in Grand Forks, N.D., and Dec. 28 at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, Minn. Dates and locations for the other two games in Canada will be announced this fall.

Canada beat the United States in the gold-medal game at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver.
