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.
