There are probably a few current or former CIS hockey players taking part in Red Bull Crashed Ice this weekend. Ottawa Gee-Gees forward Corey Thibaudeau, who missed some games last season to compete in the X Games-esque "combination of downhill skating, hockey and boarder-cross" in Quebec City, is back again.
The new women's division includes former Queen's all-Canadian hockey player Liz Chiasson. Liz and my sister, Trina Sager, played minor hockey together in Kingston for many years.
The qualification list is online, for anyone who's interested. Please, wager responsibly.
(The Kingston Whig-Standard has an article on Chiasson today. One of the male racers says, "Now we have women racing? I'm not trying to be sexist, but I hope they don't get hurt." Don't worry, pal, you didn't have to try to be sexist.)
