It will be a big Olympic hockey weekend for the Eye on the Arctic community!

Finland’s @leijonat faces off against Team USA on Saturday for the bronze medal.

Then on Sunday, Sweden’s @Trekronorse takes on Team Canada for the gold.

Eye on the Arctic couldn’t possibly pick a favourite (it would be like trying to pick your favourite child!), so best of luck to ALL these great circumpolar hockey nations in their upcoming games!
