On January 3, The Golden Bears hockey team played their first game of 2023 in an exhibition fundraiser against the U25 Ukrainian National Team. The fundraiser game, part of the “Hockey Can’t Stop Tour,” helped to raise money for hockey development in Ukraine and Ukrainian communities in both Ukraine and Canada. In a crowded Clare Drake Arena, the Bears took a four-point win over the Ukrainian National Team.
