The University of Alberta will be one of four Canada West schools to host the Ukrainian National team in the new year, in games that will serve both as preparation for the FISU Winter Games in Lake Placid and as a fundraiser for Ukrainian communities torn apart by the war.
All ticket sale profits will be sent to the Canada/Ukraine Foundation, which provides assistance to humanitarian groups in Ukraine and Canada. The Foundation will disperse the majority of funds to Save Ukrainian Hockey Dream, a charitable foundation operated by the Ukrainian Ice Hockey Federation with the assistance of the IIHF.
The puck drops at Clare Drake Arena on January 3 @ 7:00 PM. Tickets at betheroar.ca
