Still I'm surprised they don't go down to the US for some games. A good chance to get some games in against superior teams instead of playing against SAIT again.
There are two issues.

First, I am not sure whether Alberta or Sask have sought opponents or not in recent years. I had heard in the past that they had problems.

Second, it is very strange that US hockey teams refuse to travel but their basketball and volleyball teams come here every year. In basketball, the NCAA is miles ahead and most games are wipe-outs. In volleyball, the CW is the best league around and the best NCAA teams get their best competition against the CW. So it all makes no sense.
