Hockey Opener in Pegula Set for Homecoming Friday
Penn State Men’s Hockey still has two more games to play at the Greenberg Ice Pavilion this weekend, but the date is already set for the first contest at the brand new Pegula Ice Arena next October, and the timing is rather interesting.
The puck will drop in the Nittany Lions’ new home on October 11th against the Army Black Knights. This also happens to be the Friday night of Homecoming weekend at Penn State.
Army has a 7-14-4 record this season and fell to Penn State 5-0 in West Point back in October as Nittany Lions sophomore goaltender P.J. Musico recorded a shutout, stopping all 34 shots he faced.
This is shaping up to be an entertaining weekend in Happy Valley. Michigan is in town the following day for the first time in three years, and other fall sports teams could be in action as well, leaving no shortage of athletic and entertainment options to go with the annual Homecoming parade.
Do you plan to spend your Friday night inside Pegula Ice Arena for the Nittany Lions’ season opener or somewhere else? Let us know in the comments!
