Penn State Men’s Hockey Releases 2023-24 Non-Conference Schedule
It’s almost time for Penn State men’s hockey.
With the season kicking off in under two months, the team released its 2023-24 non-conference schedule on social media Wednesday.
Penn State opens its season at 7:30 p.m. on October 7 on the road at Long Island. The Nittany Lions last faced the Sharks at Pegula Ice Arena to open the 2021-22 season, winning both games 3-1 and 5-2, respectively. The trip to Long Island marks the first time the Nittany Lions begin their season on the road since the 2020-21 season, when Minnesota swept them.
After LIU, Penn State remains on the road for a single-game series against Clarkson at 7 p.m. on October 13 in Potsdam, New York. It is the Golden Knights’ home opener, and is scheduled as a “White Out” game, according to the team’s website.
A third consecutive away game is scheduled for Penn State. At 7 p.m. on October 14, the Nittany Lions face St. Lawrence in Canton, New York. Head coach Guy Gadowsky’s team last faced the Saints in October 2017, winning 4-1 on the road.
After the long road trip, the Nittany Lions are scheduled for a home series on October 20 and 21 against American International College at Pegula. To close out October, a series against Alaska-Anchorage continues the homestand on October 26 and 27.
The next non-conference series isn’t until after Thanksgiving, when Penn State takes on Lindenwood on November 24 and 25 at home.
Penn State’s last non-conference game of the regular season is set for a January 6 home matchup against Army. The Nittany Lions last faced Army at West Point on New Year’s Day of 2022, winning 5-3.
