The Gopher Women's Hockey team has announced the addition of an exhibition game against the Minnesota Whitecaps to their schedule for the 2017-2018 season. The two teams will square off on Friday evening, January 5, 2018, at 7 p.m. at Ridder Arena.

The Gophers and Whitecaps have met four times over the past two seasons, with each game being decided by a 5-4 score and the Gophers winning three of the four contests.

The Whitecaps are a semi-pro team that plays against a variety of professional, collegiate, and prep competition.  The game on January 5 is the sixth game on their limited 2017-2018 schedule, the fifth against a team from the Western Collegiate Hockey Association (WCHA).

Admission for this exhibition game is free and non-ticketed.  We look forward to seeing many of you in attendance as the Gophers return from their winter break.
