URegina to host WHL hub

March 2, 2021
The University of Regina will be hosting the Western Hockey League (WHL) hub. The move will allow 245 athletes and support staff from the East Division bubble – the Regina Pats, Saskatoon Blades, Swift Current Broncos, Moose Jaw Warriors, Prince Albert Raiders, Winnipeg Ice, and Brandon Wheat Kings – to stay at two URegina residential towers. Athletes will stay at the residence for two months and will access eating areas. Bettina Welsh, the director of student affairs and operations at the URegina, said that there should be no conflicts over space with students living in residence. 650 CKOM (SK)
