Now, we play hockey.

UAH hockey begins its 29th varsity season and 35th overall on Friday and Saturday night, 6:00 p.m. Central both nights. The Chargers are in Boston to take on the Northeastern Huskies. Here’s how you can follow the action:

1.44 (59th) Goals per game (rank) 2.38 (45th)

13.3% (53rd) Power play (rank) 16.5% (32nd)
76.3% (56th) Penalty kill (rank) 81.1% (32nd)

 

Northeastern leads the all-time series 2-0, beating UAH 3-0 and 3-1 in November of last season. Friday night is the season opener for both teams. Northeastern beat Dalhousie 5-0 in a preseason exhibition.

The Huskies struggled last season, particularly at the end, losing nine of their last 11 and finishing last in Hockey East. With significant roster turnover, Northeastern is not expected to fare better this season as they are picked to finish last in the Hockey East preseason coachces poll. Like UAH, the Huskies have a large freshman contingent (12) on their roster, one more than the Chargers. Sophomore Kevin Roy, who notched three assists against the Chargers last season, was their leading scorer last season with 17 goals.

  1. […] Northeastern hit the Chargers early and often, dominating the first period and never looking back in an 9-1 win over UAH Friday night in the season opener for both teams. Both teams face off again Saturday at 6 p.m (Catching the Game). […]
