Cornell, New Hampshire will play Madison Square Garden Thanksgiving weekend 2016

Cornell and New Hampshire are set to play at Madison Square Garden on Saturday, Nov. 26, 2016, in a game being branded “The Frozen Apple.”

The nonconference game will mark the sixth consecutive season and the eighth time in the last 10 years that Cornell has played on the storied ice in Manhattan.

Tickets for The Frozen Apple will go on sale at noon EDT on Monday, May 23 directly through Cornell’s athletic ticket site or through Ticketmaster.

This will be Cornell’s third appearance in The Frozen Apple, following victories against Michigan in 2012 and Penn State in 2014. The Big Red has also competed in five Red Hot Hockey matchups with Boston University in 2007, 2009, 2011, 2013 and 2015.

“We are really excited to play UNH at The Frozen Apple,” said Cornell coach Mike Schafer in a statement. “They are always a competitive team with great fans and one of the best coaches in the country in Dick Umile. We look forward to the Wildcats’ fans and UNH alumni joining the Lynah Faithful at such a historic venue.”

“We are very excited to bring our program to Madison Square Garden and play a team with great tradition like Cornell,” added Umile. “We have a big alumni base in New York and are very happy to give them a chance to come and watch the Wildcats play.”
