    UConn hockey will play two games next season at Ohio State, which will play two at UConn in 2017-18.

    They are good to get OOC games out of. I would LOVE to see some stuff done with Wisconsin and Michigan and Minnesota down the road.

    Heck, Wisconsin is coming to play at Merrimack, so anything's possible. Doubt the Granatos will let that happen again though.

    Really? Wisconsin and Minnesota have high school rinks larger than what Merrimack has.

    I would really like UConn to develop a OCC rivalry with Penn St. Similar schools, both new to D1 hockey, drivable and can even throw in ice cream tasting contests in between periods.

    It's puzzling that they scheduled that, though it was under the previous coaching staff who had clearly taken the program off the rails. Wouldn't shock me to see if the new regime tries to weasel their way out of that one.

    I wouldn't expect Minnesota or them to be playing in Hartford any time soon. The Gophers have been less than willing to make trips east to play anyone in the last decade. BU apparently called them up about five years ago about scheduling a home/home and they'd only be willing to schedule two out there with no return trip. Parker lol'd, hnng up, rescheduled Michigan and got a series with North Dakota. But then they go and schedule a home and home with Vermont. Not sure what Lucia is doing out there, but he's got a lot of people scratching their heads.

    Michigan is another possible target with the Warde connection, but definitely getting Penn State would be a great add. You could call up Sparty too and see if they'd be willing to schedule something.

    A road trip to check out their rink, my opinion, similar to what UConn should pursue... funding ppermitting of course.

    Getting a facility like PSU has would be ideal! Hopefully if they look at "renovating" Freitas they build a second ice surface keeping the present one for practice/public skating/intramurals/hockey and the other as the "arena" playing surface. Put the team facilities (locker rooms, lounges, workout facilities, sports med facilities) in between both ice surfaces.

    I got a little impatient waiting for UConn baseball play in the NCAA tournament, so I passed the time by finding a few dates for the UConn mens ice hockey schedule

    Oct 7-8 Alabama-Huntsville
    Nov 11-12 @ Ohio State
    Dec 2 @ UMass Lowell
    Dec 3 UMass Lowell
    Dec 30-31 @ Desert Classic - Arizona State

    Wow if true that is awesome news. Great schedule. Also would 14 games mean that game vs. Maine@Fenway is considered home then?

    Disappointing non-conference home schedule.

    Interesting. No XL Center games with either Maine or Notre Dame. Even with accounting for UConn being the "home" team for the Fenway game with Maine, it seems to be an unbalanced Hockey East schedule in terms of home and away games. Is UConn playing two games away at Notre Dame? Or is UConn playing a home conference game against either Maine or Notre Dame at another venue?

    Not everyone in Hockey East plays home and home. UConn plays twice at ND this year based on the annual rotation.

    OOC home schedule is awful.

    We should play either 2 at ND and Maine at home or the other way around, no? I sort of agree about the NC home schedule but UAH is return to us going there, so we knew that was coming. Yale is a good game and I get the sense that SHU will always be on the schedule . I am sort of glad to see AIC on the schedule if only because they are our most played opponent, our first varsity opponent, opened Freitas, so we have some history.
