After years of hard work on and off the ice, and thanks to special invitation from six-time Olympian Hayley Wickenheiser, the players from Ladakh, India, will arrive in Canada for the first time. The team, who overcame strong societal and familial pressures in an effort to grow the game of women’s ice hockey in India, will compete in the ninth annual Canadian Tire WickFest.
