One final test for Team Canada against Olympic rivals

One final test for Team Canada against Olympic rivals

It’s getting down to crunch time for the Canadian women’s national hockey team with the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics just eight weeks away. Canada will play its final exhibition game against the United States leading up to the Olympics on Sunday (5 p.m.) at Rogers Place, still having a handful of cuts to make. The game will be the last opportunity for players to make an impression against Canada’s arch-rival. “Every time we play the U.S., it’s an intense battle, but I think in an Olympic year when we play them so much, each game the competition and the tension escalates,” said Team Canada defenceman Meaghan Mikkelson. “We saw a little bit of that in the last few games, and I think when we play in Edmonton — that will be our last game against the U.S. before the Olympics — and it’ll no doubt be a good one. “I think everyone is looking forward to it and we will be trying to put on a good show for all the fans.” Canada and the U.S have played each other five times in their pre-Olympic exhibition series, which began in October. Canada leads the series 4-1, with their only loss coming in the opening game, 5-2, in Quebec City. On Friday, Canada defeated the United States 3-1 in San Jose, Calif. They have also posted 5-1, 2-1, and 2-0 victories

 
 

Adopt-A-Teen: Each card comes with a message of love for a teen in need

Adopt-A-Teen: Each card comes with a message of love for a teen in need

When you give an underprivileged teen a gift through Edmonton Sun Adopt-A-Teen, it means so much more than the face value of a $50 Walmart gift card. “Thank you for giving me the gift card as a Christmas gift. It means a lot to me. Even though the day is so cold, I can feel the warm air anyway, because there are many kind people and an organization like you to help others,” wrote one of the teens who received an Adopt-A-Teen gift card last year. With every gift card we send, you are telling a teen living in poverty who is so often left out that you care. It’s an inspiring message, one that can follow a teen and their family through the rest of their lives. “We used the gift card for buying groceries so that we would have food for Christmas break and gloves for the winter,” read one note from two sisters on the Adopt-A-Teen list
