Northeastern will return to competition for men’s hockey and women’s hockey later this month.
These teams showed minimal COVID-19 related issues during the recent pause in activity.
“Adjustments were made after an environmental scan of all teams with respect to COVID-19,” said Northeastern director of athletics and recreation Jeff Konya in a statement. “This is the best decision to have student-athletes compete in a safe climate and at the earliest opportunity. We will continue to make adjustments if needed.”
The second-ranked women’s hockey team will open up the season with a home-and-home series with No. 10 Boston College on Dec. 11 and 13, hosting the Eagles on Sunday at 5 p.m. on NESN inside Matthews Arena.
The 15th-ranked men’s hockey team will play a home-and-home with Merrimack to open the season on Dec. 12 and 13, hosting the Warriors on Saturday night at 6 p.m. on NESN.
Fans will not be permitted at any home events through the end of 2020. Northeastern will re-evaluate this position in early 2021.
