Holy Cross Added To Schedule

The hockey season ticket renewal mailings went out this past week and while the full schedule isn’t finalized, there does appear to be a change from what was distributed at the Reverse Raffle in April. The letter mentions home games against Harvard, Yale, and Holy Cross. The first two we knew about, but a game against the Crusaders wasn’t on the original schedule. It appears that Holy Cross has replaced UConn from that earlier schedule, as the Huskies released their schedule and it doesn’t have them coming to Amherst.

I did notice that Bentley released their schedule, confirming their game against UMass.

From what I’ve heard, everything is still on track for UMass to play Vermont at Fenway on January 7th. Others have noted that Hockey East has kept that date clear of games involving other Hockey East teams.

Speaking of the season ticket renewal, one benefit that has been instituted this year is a discount based on the length of time you’ve had season tickets. It definitely pays to get seasons tickets.

Sounds like co-captain T.J. Syner was impressive at Capitals Development camp, scoring two goals in the final scrimmage and drawing praise from a Caps blogger.



  1. Great news about Syner. The NHL has become a lot friendlier towards those with size “issues” in recent years, I hope TJ gets a real shot.

    It seems this experience will only help him (and UMass) next season. Thanks for the links.

    i find it interesting providence college season chedule is released and has umass on jan 7 so wouldnt it be 1 of the 2 games umass had listed as home games vs vermont on 20th or 21st?

    The composite Hockey East schedule was posted, it has UMass playing Providence and UVM that night. Clearly the placeholder is there, but the PC game needs to be moved. Also it only has one game against UVM in late Jan. instead of the traditional 2.
