The national champion University of Manitoba Bisons women's hockey team will look a little different for the 2018-19 hockey season. No, the players will not be wearing either of their gold medals over their jerseys on the ice, but they will have a fresh face giving orders behind the bench.

The University of Manitoba Bisons men's hockey team will begin its preseason schedule on the other side of the world. Following similarity in the footsteps of the women's hockey team (who travelled to Finland in 2017), the Bisons will fly to the United Kingdom for exhibition contests with teams from the British Elite Ice Hockey League.

Both Winnipeg and the University of Manitoba will be represented by Bisons' forward Alanna Sharman at the Hockey Canada Summer Showcase in Calgary this coming August.
