To get you set for this weekend's Canada West women's hockey action, here are some storylines from around the conference in the latest edition of Ice Chips.

Regina Cougars Communications

REGINA - The University of Regina women's hockey team will finish the home portion of its Canada West regular season schedule this weekend with a pair of evening contests against the No. 1-ranked UBC Thunderbirds.

The Cougars (10-10-3-1) are coming off a home-and-home split against Saskatchewan, with each team taking a win in the other's home rink. The Huskies won 2-1 on Friday night before the Cougars bounced back for a 1-0 win on Saturday. Lilla Carpenter-Boesch scored the winner in the rematch while Jane Kish posted her third shutout of the season.

CALGARY - The fifth annual Saddledome game goes Thursday night when the Dinos and Cougars square off. The Dinos have won three of four games on Saddledome ice but this season they have struggled and will likely finish last in the conference. Mount Royal is firmly cemented in a playoff spot for the first time in their Canada West career.



Pronghorns hit the ice for final home games of season

Lethbridge Pronghorns Communications

LETHBRIDGE - After officially being eliminated from post-season contention last weekend, the Lethbridge Pronghorn women's hockey team will conclude the home portion of the Canada West schedule this weekend and for the third week in a row face a nationally ranked opponent in the seventh ranked Alberta Pandas.
The 'Horns and Pandas will hit the ice at Nicholas Sheran Arena Friday night at 7:00pm and Saturday afternoon at 3:00pm. Both games will be streamed live on
