Preview ▲ Minutemen Kick Off 2016 With Trip To West Point

Massachusetts Minutemen 6-8-4 (2-4-4) T-7th Hockey East


Army West Point Black Knights 5-8-4 (3-7-4) T-7th Atlantic Hockey

At first glance a game against Atlantic Hockey’s Army West Point Black Knights seems to be exactly what the Massachusetts Minutemen need to get back on track and kick off the new year right.  But upon closer inspection this Army team isn’t one to overlook.  After all, with their mid-week 3-2 win over #20 Merrimack the Black Knights now have a two game winning streak against Hockey East.  Army entered the holiday break on a downward note after getting swept by American International.  But they’ve already done what UMass so desperately needs, to get a win under their belts as the season enters its second phase.
