The Cougars will open the Canada West regular season on home ice on Oct. 5 as Mount Royal University visits The Co-operators Centre.
Head coach Sarah Hodges enters her 21st season with the team and will see a group of gifted offensive players return to the ice.
The team’s top four scorers from a season ago will all be back in the green and gold, as Emma Waldenberger, Jaycee Magwood, Tamara McVannel and Lilla Carpenter-Boesch rejoin the team.
Jane Kish is coming off her best season between the pipes for the Cougars, and Morgan Baker will also return after an impressive sophomore season.
The Cougars also have a notable recruiting class, as four forwards, a defender and a goalie will suit up as the team aims for the top of Canada West.
