BU hockey schedule officially released

The BU mens' hockey schedule was officially released by BU athletics today and is full of the usual quality Hockey East action and some great non-conference matchups. Non-conference games include matchups at North Dakota(x2), at Denver, St. Lawrence, RPI, and Harvard to go along with the Beanpot games on the first two Mondays in February. There also is no Holy Cross on the schedule which is always good with that high octane offensive attack they brought into Agganis last year...Ok but seriously should be a great season full of games and here is a look at the games I am circling as the Terriers prepare to go 43-0-0 en route to their 6th national title in program history.

Sat 10/13 @7pm - home and season opener against PC and their incoming goalie recruit Jon Gillies. It will be interesting to see what the Terriers youthful group of forwards can generate in Game 1.

Sat 10/20 7pm @UNH- I've never been up to Durham and want to make the trip for this game so therefore it is important enough to mention

11/2-11/3- @North Dakota- This would be a great road trip to be able to make(does North Dakota even have an airport?) and should be a great atmosphere out there if it is anything like St. Paul was in March.

Sunday 11/11 5pm vs. Newton University aka BC- Going to be an awesome afternoon with Pats/Bills playing at 1

Friday 11/30-Sat 12/1- The home and home with BC ends in early December once again which makes no sense except that they will most likely see each other on that second Monday in February once again

Sat 12/29 @Denver- Another nice roadie to do, if you have the funds hanging around and want to spend part of winter break and the holidays in the Mile High City and drink a lot of Coors

Mon 2/4, 2/11- Beanpot Mondays. Not much needs to be said here #becauseitsthepot. It's funny because you could say the same thing on 4/20

Fri-Sat 2/15-2/16 @Maine- What better way to spend Valentine's Day weekend than to go to Maine where all the locals will bring their dates/sisters/mothers/grandmothers to Alfond?

3/8-3/9 NU home and home- There is always something relying on these games so I'll let NU feel relevant for a few minutes anyway.

That's all I got for now until the official incoming recruit class is announced. I believe they still have Clendening's scholarship to fill which could be the hold up. Keep enjoying your summers people.
