THE LOW DOWN
Heading into the final weekend of play in 2017, the Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks (1-0-7-1) will look to climb their way up the OUA standings as they take on the Toronto Varsity Blues (5-0-5-1) and the No. 9 Brock Badgers (7-2-2-1).

NEED TO KNOW
- the Hawks will be anxious to put 2017 behind them as they are currently on a three-game losing streak that has seen them drop to last place in the conference standings
- Laurier’s last game saw them fail to take advantage of a great opportunity to pick up a win as they lost 4-0 on the road to the Windsor Lancers who sit three points ahead of them in the standings
- prior to that contest, the Hawks had one of their best efforts of the season, nearly upsetting the Badgers as they lost 3-2 on home ice
- after starting the season with four straight wins, including a 2-0 victory over the Hawks, Toronto has been in a tail-spin, losing six of their last seven games
- Brock has been red hot as they’ve moved into the U SPORTS Top 10 in recent weeks, winning five in a row to climb to second in the conference

PLAYERS TO WATCH
Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks (1-0-7-1)

G Hannah Miller (Georgetown, Ont.)
- the rookie netminder has been the story of the season thus far for the purple and gold as she ranks second in the OUA in save percentage at 0.958
- allowing just seven goals in five appearances in 2017-18, her 1.43 goals against average has her sitting sixth in the conference

F Emily Woodhouse (St. Marys, Ont.)
- the second year forward has been snake-bitten this season with just one goal on the year
- after posting a team-best 10 goals a season ago, this weekend sets up as a great opportunity for Woodhouse to break out of her slump

Toronto Varsity Blues (5-0-5-1)

F Kassie Roache (Corunna, Ont.)
- fourth year forward has been a model of consistency for Toronto this year with point in eight of her team’s 11 games
- currently leads Toronto with five goals and five assists

No. 9 Brock Badgers (7-2-2-1)

F Christina Ieradi (Maple, Ont.)
- fourth year forward gave the Golden Hawks trouble in their last meeting, scoring the game-winning goal and adding an assist
- leads the nationally-ranked Badgers with nine points in 12 games
