Hockey East Announces Frozen Fenway Games
The Hockey East conference announced four games that will be played at Fenway Park for the 2016-17 season, including a match-up for the Maine Black Bears on Jan. 14, 2017 against the University of Connecticut.
The game at Fenway Park will be the third appearance for the Black Bears at the baseball park to play a regular season game with UMaine holding a 2-0 record there. Maine last played in 2014 and beat UNH by a score of 5-4 in overtime.
"Hockey East and our schools could not be more excited to take the ice once again at Fenway Park," said Hockey East commissioner Joe Bertagna. "Once Frozen 2017 is complete all twelve Hockey East schools will have played an outdoor game at Fenway Park, creating once-in- a-lifetime memories for the players, students, alumni and fans."
The Black Bears will be the road team for the game. In addition to Frozen Fenway, UMaine will play three games in Portland with the remainder of their home contests being played at Alfond Arena.
