Boston’s won the Clarkson Cup, the Minnesota Golden Gophers won their third NCAA Championship in four years, and we’ve barely got a moment to pause for breath before the 2015 Women’s World Championship starts! Players have reported to their pre-tournament camps already, as the first game of the championship starts on March 28th, this SATURDAY, in Malmö, Sweden.

You can check out the complete schedule at the IIHF’s website. USA Hockey has the U.S. schedule and results on their website, while Hockey Canada has the complete schedule in a slightly more readable format up on theirs. (As a sad American, I find the GMT times on the IIHF website deeply confusing.)

The preliminary round starts on Saturday, and goes until Tuesday, March 31st. The regulation round is played along side the playoff round, April 1st-4th, culminating in the gold medal game on Saturday, April 4th. Remember, as an IIHF tournament, the outcome of this tournament plays into the seeding for the 2016 Olympics.
As for how to watch these games, that’s a bit more complicated. Hockey Canada has a live game update page for every game, not just Canada games, available off their schedule page. In the past, select games were streamed and available on FastHockey and we’re trying to hunt down if that will still be true this year. Canadians, you’re a bit more in luck, as it appears that TSN will be showing on television all of Canada’s games, as well as the medal games.
We’ll update this post as we know more, and we’ll always post it on Twitter, too.
