CALGARY, AB – Canada’s National Men’s Sledge Hockey Team will play host to Team USA at the front end of a home-and-home exhibition series between January 24th and 28th in London, ON.

Hockey Canada announced on Thursday that Canada and the USA will play three games as part of the London Blizzard Invitational Sledge Hockey Tournament. The tournament itself includes 22 intermediate and 12 junior teams, and will be played at the Western Fair Sports Centre. 

To complete the home-and-home exhibition series, Canada’s National Sledge Hockey Team will be traveling to Park City, Utah from February 15th-18th to face Team USA.

These six games against Team USA over the coming months will help Team Canada prepare for the World Sledge Hockey Challenge, which is scheduled for March 11th-17th in Kelowna, BC.
