Video webcasts for both matches will be available at CanadaWest.tv.

Men’s Hockey – The Cougars split a pair of non-conference games in Winnipeg last weekend, dropping a 3-2 decision against the Manitoba Bisons before bouncing back with a 4-2 win the following night.

Saturday night will see the Cougars take on the St. Cloud State Huskies and Sunday will feature a matchup with the Minnesota State Mavericks.
