Home-heavy start highlights 2017-18 Cornell men’s hockey schedule

The Cornell men’s hockey team announced today its schedule for the upcoming season, including seven home games before the Thanksgiving holiday and the highly anticipated resumption of the Red Hot Hockey series against Boston University on Nov. 25 at famed Madison Square Garden in New York.

After being the last NCAA Division I team to play its first home game last season, the Big Red will open with seven of its first nine games at Lynah Rink this season. The campaign starts with a two-game non-league series Oct. 28-29 against Alabama-Huntsville before Cornell opens the ECAC Hockey schedule on the road Nov. 3 at Quinnipiac and Nov. 4 at Princeton. A five-game home stand then follows, starting with a visit from Dartmouth on Nov. 10 and Harvard on Nov. 11. It marks the earliest visit from those Ivy League rivals since the 2009-10 season.
