The Barclays Center in Brooklyn will host a college hockey doubleheader on Sunday, Nov. 1, 2015.
This inaugural event will feature Army playing Bentley and Notre Dame taking on Connecticut. The doubleheader will showcase different teams each year.
“Hockey East is pleased to join with our friends in Atlantic Hockey and Play By Play Sports to bring this event to hockey fans at Barclays Center,” said Hockey East commissioner Joe Bertagna in a statement. “It worked out well that our two newest member institutions were able to participate in this inaugural event and the Notre Dame-UConn hockey rivalry has already become one to watch.”
“This is a great opportunity for two of our member institutions, Army and Bentley, to be a part of a major event and to participate in the first college hockey event at Barclays Center,” added Atlantic Hockey commissioner Bob DeGregorio. “Our partners at Atlantic Hockey, Army and Bentley are excited to showcase their exceptional student-athletes at this venue.”
