CALGARY, Alta. – Southern Ontario will be the backdrop for a three-game cross-border series between Canada’s National Women’s Team and the U.S. Women’s National Team next February.

The series kicks off Tuesday, Feb. 12 at 7 p.m. ET in London, Ont., at Budweiser Gardens, the home of the London Knights of the Ontario Hockey League. The teams will play again Thursday, Feb. 14 at 7 p.m. ET at Scotiabank Arena, home of the Toronto Maple Leafs, before shifting south of the border for the final game Sunday, Feb. 17 at 12 p.m. ET at Little Caesars Arena in Detroit, Mich., home of the Detroit Red Wings.

“This rivalry has continued to build over the years from world championships to the Olympics, and this series is one more opportunity to showcase the top players from our two countries to fans,” said Gina Kingsbury, Hockey Canada’s director of women’s national teams. “While this series is a friendly competition, it serves as an important measuring stick for us in our short-term competitions, including the IIHF Women’s World Championship in April.”

The rivals met earlier this month at the 4 Nations Cup in Saskatoon, Sask., and previously competed against each other in a six-game series ahead of the 2018 Olympic Winter Games.

“We look forward to showcasing our teams in a best-on-best competition in Southern Ontario and Michigan, and we’re excited to watch Canada and the United States continue their rivalry in two Canadian hockey cities,” said Dean McIntosh, Hockey Canada’s vice-president of events and properties. “This is a new and unique series we’re bringing to fans, and with more than 40,000 young females playing hockey in Ontario, the games will continue to inspire young girls to play while providing them the opportunity to watch their hockey heroes.”  

Tickets for Toronto are available now through Ticketmaster, tickets for the Feb. 12 game in London will be announced at a later date.
