Speaking of Olympic ice, it's a little surprising to me that for the game in the Twin Cities they're playing at Xcel instead of 3Mariucci. You'd think the chance to get in a little time on the bigger ice, as well as the smaller capacity, would have made it a better fit than playing in at NHL arena where at least half the seats will be empty.
who knows, maybe they'll sell out the X, but I will be extremely surprised if they do, they couldn't do it last time with people intrigued there may be a fight and also everyone off for Xmas break

Looking at ticketmaster last night, the middle of the rink was getting pretty filled, but the corners and ends were still essentially empty, and they weren't selling tickets for anything in the upper levels. I suppose that could change dramatically in the next month - I don't know how well it's being advertised up there, and I only discovered the game was happening last night - that seems a little optimistic to me.
Cayla Barnes was called up to the USWNT and will redshirt the rest of the season.
BC claims she will maintain her 4 years of eligibility.
I think there's a certain percentage of games threshold that has to be met for you to petition for the redshirt. And then you can't return that season, period.

There are now like 9 D listed on the roster. What happens if Barnes gets cut? Does she come back to BC? If not, there is a good likelihood that she makes the Olympic team in 2022, and would then finish her BC career in 2023. That's a long span of a career (10/2017 to 03/2023) w/o involving injury.
