Hockey season opens for Montreal Stars
Luckily, the Canadian Women's Hockey League isn't locked out and they're ready to start their season tonight against Boston.
It's a league that operates on a small budget but with some very big talent. The defending Clarkson Cup Champions, the Montreal Stars boast Olympic gold medallists, and national and world champions. On top of all of that, tickets for their games are slightly less expensive than going to the Bell Centre: admission is $10!
This morning, Montreal Stars players Catherine Ward and Haley Irwin got up early on game day to join Sonali Karnick in-studio. Catherine is from Montreal and played for Dawson College and McGill University. Haley Irwin is from Thunder Bay, Ontario. Both are Olympic gold medallists from Canada's national team.
