Hawks play women’s team from China
The Hamilton Hawks midget AA team will play the Qiqihar Randy women’s ice hockey team from China on Oct. 15 at Inch Park Arena.
The Chinese team has been in Canada since August and is playing about 20 games (including against the Hawks and the Ancaster Avalanche), and practicing every day, while they’re here.
It’s part of the long-term plan to strengthen Chinese hockey for the Winter Olympics which will be held in Beijing in February, 2022.
Nine formal national team members are on the Qiqihar Randy team roster.
Game time is noon at Inch Park, and there will be a raffle and door prizes.
