More Fenway News

The Hampshire Gazette’s Matt Vautour has confirmed that UMass will indeed by playing at Fenway Park.  He also reports that UMass will likely play Vermont, not Maine as originally reported.  I think a UMass-UVM/Maine-UNH doubleheader works much better for all the fanbases.

The Boston Herald also has a story on the event (featuring a picture of Joel Hanley).

Meanwhile, Mike McMahon, who originally broke the story, mentioned on Twitter that January 7th will be the likely date of the games.  That means UMass will need to reschedule their game at Providence for that day and will likely lose a home game against Vermont that would’ve been played in the Mullins Center.

Recruit Shane Walsh’s Dubuque Saints have a chance to clinch the USHL championship tonight.

Former Minuteman J.R Zavisza, who played for UMass from 1999 to 2002, is the new head hockey coach at Loomis Chaffee prep school.

Mike McMahon had an interesting Q&A with Hockey East Commissioner Joe Bertagna about the impact of the new Big 10 hockey conference and potential expansion.
