March 5&6: WCHA Final Faceoff

*Saturday game part of Camp Randall Classic

One opening left on the schedule is a home (assuming home) non-conference series which could likely be during the weekend of Sept 26th. Also, the Duluth Foreign Legion has not released their schedule. They are likely waiting to see how many of their illegal, previously paid foreign players will be in the Olympics and how many (previously undeserving) North American women will have to fill their roster this season. Communism may not hold sway over the North Shore this season.

Season ticket sales for the Women will follow the official schedule release. At $30 for the entire season, I’m not sure you can find a better deal anywhere.
