The Carleton Ravens host the biggest hockey weekend of the fall term this weekend with four straight nights of hockey at the Carleton Ice House.
On Thursday night, the women's hockey team hosts Ottawa for the first time this season. The Bytown Battle is the third meeting between the two teams this season and with the Ravens in the hunt in the RSEQ standings this game is incredibly important. Carleton saw their three-game point streak come to an end on Sunday and look to rebound against their rivals. Coming off a 38-save performance against Montreal, Marie-Eve Cote will have her work cut out for her against the RSEQ's top scorer Abygail Moloughney.
Country Night returns to the Carleton Ice House on Friday. The Ravens familiar foe from Kingston, the Queen's Gaels, make their first trip to the Ice House since 2019 on Friday as the Ravens host Country Night in support of Movember. With puck drop at 7:00 PM, the Ravens look to build off their 4-0 win Saturday at Nipissing when they host the Gaels. Carleton is lead by the OUA's leading scorer Parker AuCoin who now has 12 goals in just 9 games. With his twelfth of the season, AuCoin is already having one of the 20 best seasons in modern Ravens history.
The men are back in action on Saturday when they look to avenge an early season loss to the RMC Paladins. The Paladins are just four points back of the Ravens in the OUA standings as they push for a return to the playoffs. In their last meeting, Paladins goaltender Joey May and Ravens goalie Mark Grametbauer both made 40-plus saves in a highly competitive matchup.
In the final matchup of the weekend, the Ravens women's hockey team returns to the ice on Sunday afternoon when they face McGill. The Ravens kickstarted their recent point streak with their first win over the Martlets since 2019 and are hungry for more. Carleton are currently five points up on McGill in 5th place in the RSEQ and is looking to close the gap on the three teams tied five points ahead of them.
