The Bison men’s hockey and men’s volleyball teams will host a Mental Health Awareness & Suicide Prevention evening in support of Bell Let’s Talk on Friday, January 25. Both games start at 7 p.m. with hockey facing off at the Wayne Fleming Arena against the Lethbridge Pronghorns and volleyball taking on the Thompson Rivers Wolfpack at Investors Group Athletic Centre.
