The Calgary Flames may be done for the season, but meaningful hockey is still taking place in the Calgary area over the next week as the PWHPA’s Dream Gap Tour arrives in town with its Canadian Showcase event.

Here’s what you need to know about the event!

So, what’s going on?

This week is the fourth showcase event this season for the Professional Women’s Hockey Players Association, or PWHPA, as part of their Dream Gap Tour. (Previous events were held in New York, Chicago and St. Louis.)

This week’s event in Calgary is primarily a showcase for the PWHPA’s Canadian contingent, and features several players who were going to be playing at the World Championship in Halifax before they were moved to August – the rumour is the tournament will be in Calgary, but nothing’s official yet.

The event also features many players who will be competing for Olympic roster spots and vying for gold in Beijing next February. In a year (and Olympic cycle) with disruptions and few chances to get meaningful games in, this week’s event will be invaluable for those hoping to play for Team Canada.
