CALGARY, AB – Hockey Canada announced on Friday that Saturday night’s gold medal game at the 2008 IIHF World Women’s Under-18 Championship (7:30 p.m. MT) is sold out.

More than 2,000 fans are expected to fill Father David Bauer Arena in Calgary for the game, which will feature the winners of Friday’s semi-finals between Canada and Sweden (7:45 p.m. MT) and the USA and Czech Republic (4:15 p.m. MT). Both semi-finals will also take place at Father David Bauer Arena.

"We are very excited that the people have shown so much enthusiasm and support for this world championship, and given the athletes such an amazing atmosphere to compete in," says Lois Mitchell, chair of the host organizing committee. "The city has always supported women's hockey, and we look forward to having a full house on Saturday for what should be an exciting finish to a great week."

In addition, Hockey Canada has announced that two-time gold medal-winning National Junior Team member Karl Alzner, who captained this year’s team to victory in the Czech Republic, will be in attendance for Saturday’s gold medal game, and women’s hockey superstars Hayley Wickenheiser and Cassie Campbell will be on hand for an autograph session during Canada’s semi-final on Friday night.

The 2008 IIHF World Women’s Under-18 Championship is the first ever world championship held at the women’s Under-18 level, with eight teams – Canada, the United States, Sweden, Finland, Germany, Switzerland, Russia and the Czech Republic – taking part in the six-day tournament from January 7-12 at Father David Bauer Arena and Norma Bush Arena.
