Frozen Fenway 2014 will include two men’s doubleheaders

Hockey is returning outdoors to Boston’s Fenway Park in 2014 as Hockey East announced Thursday its Frozen Fenway 2014 event, a two-week series of hockey and ice skating events, including two Division I men’s college hockey doubleheaders on Jan. 4 and Jan. 11 and two free public skating days for Boston residents.

“We are excited about the return of hockey to Fenway Park,” said Hockey East commissioner Joe Bertagna in a statement. “We are particularly pleased that with these two doubleheaders, all of our men’s programs will have had the opportunity to experience Frozen Fenway, including the University of Notre Dame, our newest member.”

On Jan. 4, Merrimack will play Providence, followed by Notre Dame against Boston College.

The following Saturday, Massachusetts-Lowell will face Northeastern and then Maine plays Boston University.

Game times and ticket information for the two doubleheaders will be announced in the coming months.
