Winter Classic

Why you should go

This is as much (if not more) fun than a Canucks game, with the added bonus of being right here on campus.

DETAILS

Winter Classic is the Homecoming of hockey games. Come to the game early for live music and DJs, hockey skills games, giveaways, and lots of food and drinks. The game sold out in 2017 and 2018, so be sure to get your tickets sooner rather than later! More info.

  • When: Fri, Jan 18 | Doors open 5:00 pm; game starts 7:00 pm
  • Price: $7
  • Where: Doug Mitchell Thunderbird Sports Centre
