The University of Alberta Golden Bears will be running through the Front Range Meat Grinder this weekend in a series of exhibition games for DU, AFA and CC. They must be looking for either conditioning or their scheduling department was ticked because they get DU Saturday, AFA Sunday and CC Monday. Nothing against UA but that's a tough task from any team, let alone traveling out-of-country and playing at altitude three nights in a row! They currently hold a 3-1 record and are coming off a win over Sasketchewan.

Couple fun facts about hockey there;
The Golden Bears have won a record 13 CIS University Cup Championships.
The women's hockey team it the Alberta Pandas.
