OLDS — Canada’s national women’s hockey team will face off against the Olds Grizzlys near the end of this month.

That game is scheduled for Oct. 29 at 7 p.m. at the Sportsplex.

The matchup is one of four involving Alberta Junior Hockey League (AJHL) teams in partnership with Hockey Canada, as the women’s team prepares for the 2022 Olympic Winter Games in Beijing, China.

The other matchups take place Oct. 18 versus the Drumheller Dragons, Nov. 3 against the Camrose Kodiaks and Jan. 10, 2022 versus the Calgary Canucks.

Fans are encouraged to attend, but an AJHL news release notes that in order to do so, they’ll have to follow COVID-19 rules implemented by the AJHL.

Tickets for the game in Olds can be purchased from the Grizzlys in advance and on game day.

AJHL Commissioner Ryan Bartoshyk is excited by the series.

“The AJHL is proud to have goaltender Shannon Szabados, coach Mel Davidson and current national team member Emerance Maschmeyer as alumni of our League and look forward to hosting and embracing these games within our communities,” he said in a news release.
