The ice time, scheduled for Friday, Oct. 5 from 6:45 to 8:15 p.m., will be a chance for other girls to get on the ice with players of all ages and to have some fun with fellow players, plus provide an introduction to the sport.

World Girls Hockey Weekend was created by the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) and Hockey Canada. This year’s celebration will be the eighth annual.

The event aims to celebrate and grow the female game of hockey from coast to coast and to unite Canadians through grassroots programming led by local communities, minor hockey associations and families.
