Men’s Hockey Schedule Released
The men’s hockey schedule for the inaugural season at Pegula Ice Arena was released earlier this afternoon, which includes 19 games against teams that have made the Frozen Four since 2009.
Penn State will face a tough non-conference schedule that includes home matchups against 2013 Frozen Four participant UMass Lowell on Nov. 14 and 15. Five-time national champion Boston College will visit Pegula in January 25. 2010 Frozen Four participant RIT will come on Oct. 25, and 2012 national semifinalist Union visits on Nov. 30 and Dec. 1.
“We’ve put together a challenging non-conference schedule with several marquee games. Together with a competitive Big Ten slate and trips to both Pittsburgh and Philadelphia, our fans will have the opportunity to watch some outstanding hockey whether at Pegula Ice Arena or on the road,” said head coach Guy Gadowsky. “It will be an exciting season as we enter our first year in the Big Ten Conference in a brand-new facility.”
The new $90-million Pegula Ice Arena will open on Oct. 11 when Army comes in to play the Nittany Lions. The full schedule can be found below.
