The University of Maine Black Bears are finally set to return to the ice for the first time since last March as they get set to face arch-rival New Hampshire this weekend in Durham, NH.

The schools will play a pair of games on the "big sheet" Friday and Saturday night at 7pm.

Head coach Red Gendron made his weekly appearance on The Drive Wednesday to talk about the excitement within his team of finally hitting the ice.
