On Friday, January 4, the UPEI men’s hockey team takes on Dalhousie University at 7:00 pm at the MacLauchlan Arena. The special night—dubbed “Drew Power Night”—will include a moment of silence prior to the game to honour the former Panther who passed away recently and “DP14” T-shirts will be on sale for $20 with all proceeds going to the Power family. The men’s hockey team will also be recognizing Power with a display located outside their dressing room. 

On Saturday night, January 5, the UPEI men’s team takes to the ice again as they host Acadia University at 7:00 pm at the MacLauchlan Arena. As a bonus, local band Vintage will perform in the CARI complex lobby from 6:30–7:10 pm and again between 7:30–8:10 pm. This initiative is supported by the Registrar's Office, Student Affairs, and UPEI Athletics & Recreation. A cash bar will be located in the lobby for ticket holders aged 19 and older. 

“A Panther hockey doubleheader is a great way for fans to see the men’s and women’s hockey teams in action,” said Ron Annear, director of UPEI Athletics & Recreation. “We invite all UPEI students, staff, faculty, and community members to join us this weekend to kick-start the second half of the season where we’ll begin the drive to the AUS Championship.”

Tickets can be purchased at the box office one hour before game time. 

*Please note: Although it was reported that the UPEI women’s hockey team would host Dalhousie University on Saturday, January 5, due to Dalhousie forfeiting the remainder of their season, the game will not take place as planned.
