League leaders

League leaders UCL come into varsity this year undefeated this season and are looking to win their third varsity in a row for a three-peat. A highly experienced team is lead at the back by Swede Gabriel Sjstrom - the top keeper in southern England. Up front, Captain Guido de Boer leads the country in scoring, followed by GB international Chris Fox and David Person rounding out the top three forwards.

Imperial come into the game with a much strengthened team including GB international Andreas Sigaris as well as star captain Gus Zimmerman. Both teams boast strong sets of defensive players; this is likely to be a bruising, physical encounter.

Come down to the Olympic-sized Streatham Ice Arena on 3 March at 7:30pm and see ice hockey as it's meant to be; with beer, hotdogs, figure skaters, goals, hits and fights in front of a packed out arena.
