The series kicks off with three games in the United States: San Jose, California on November 6, West Valley City, Utah, on November 8 and Boise, Idaho, on November 10.

Canada won four games in a row to win last season’s seven-game Rivalry Series.

The series was introduced in 2018–19 as a three-game event. Canada has won three of the previous four series.

“The series has been a must-see event for hockey fans across Canada since 2018 and has played a significant role in helping grow the girls’ and women’s game in North America,” said Katherine Henderson, president and CEO of Hockey Canada, in a press release. “We look forward to treating fans to five great hockey games once again and leaving a lasting impact and legacy in Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island this season.”
