TRURO - Canadian university men's hockey is returning to Truro.
The Saint Mary's Huskies and University of Quebec Trois-Rivieres (UQTR) Patriotes will face off on Friday, Sept. 28 for a Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) exhibition game.
Puck drop is 7 p.m. at the Colchester Legion Stadium. Tickets are $10 and are available at MacQuarries Pharmasave or at the door.
Proceeds from the game will go to Truro minor hockey.
Playing in Truro is nothing new for the Huskies, who last year played exhibition games at the stadium against UQTR and St. FX. In 2010, St. Mary's squared off against the University of Toronto.
"They're trying to give back to the community and we're just lucky they picked our community to give back to," said Dave Higgins, organizer of the game.
The Huskies and Patriotes are traditionally among the top 10 each year in the CIS rankings.
The games have raised more than $20,000 over the past two years for the local minor hockey association.
