UAH vs. Notre Dame: This is the first of two visits to South Bend for UAH this season, as the Chargers return for a regular two-game series with the Fighting Irish on January 10 and 11.
The last time UAH played Notre Dame was in South Bend to start the 2009-10 season: The Chargers stunned the fifth-ranked Irish 3-2 in the first game, and lost 3-1 in the second game. UAH is 6-7 all-time against the Irish, and the Chargers’ 3-2 double overtime loss in the NCAA Midwest Regional semifinal in 2007 is the longest game in UAH hockey history.
Notre Dame was swept at UMass-Lowell last weekend.
UAH vs. Northeastern: The Huskies would be the first repeat opponent for the Chargers this season if they meet on Saturday. NU beat UAH 9-1 and 3-2 in Boston to open the season. Northeastern is coming off a sweep of a home-and-home series with Merrimack. Kevin Roy’s 11 goals are tied for fourth-most in the nation.
UAH vs. Western Michigan: The Broncos hold an 11-1 all-time series lead against the Chargers, the lone UAH win coming on Oct. 20, 2000. The teams last met in Kalamazoo in Oct. 2011. WMU swept a home-and-home with Michigan State last week. Shane Berschbach is seventh in the nation in points per game (1.42).
