That game will take place Sunday, October 15th at 1:30 p.m. at the Terry Conners Ice Rink. One week later the New York Riveters will be featured as the NWHL Twitter Game of the Week when the cameras come on at the Barnabas Health Hockey House in Newark. That game will be the second time the Riveters cross sticks with Team Russia in the preseason.

The New York Riveters faced Team Russia twice in the preseason last year.

In June Twitter COO Anthony Noto described his excitement for the social media platform’s collaboration with the NWHL.

“We are thrilled to feature more live professional women’s sports on Twitter by collaborating with the NWHL. Fans around the world will now be able to view live the fast-paced, exciting action on the ice on the same platform where the conversation about hockey is happening.”

The NWHL regular season begins on October 28th.
