Hockey Canada announced the final game of the cross-border series, and the last time the two teams will clash before the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics will be in Edmonton on Dec. 17.

“The series against the United States not only benefits our preparation, but also helps drive the interest and passion in fans on both sides of the border as we build towards February,” said Canada’s national women’s team head coach Laura Schuler. “It’s only fitting for our team to close out the Canada-USA series in Alberta, where the team has been centralized since August and we’re looking forward to showcasing our game in Edmonton.”
