UPDATE: Both Games of BC Men’s Hockey vs. New Hampshire Opening Weekend Postponed

Possible positive COVID test at UNH pushes back opening night

Excuse me sir that is too close

According to sources, Friday's Boston College Men’s Hockey game versus the New Hampshire Wildcats has been postponed due to an inconclusive COVID test within the Wildcats’ program.

UPDATE 11/21: We are now hearing that Saturday's game will be postponed as well.

UPDATE 11/20: Friday's postponement has been confirmed by the program as well as by Hockey East, but the game has not been rescheduled yet:

The tentative plan is to play the games on Saturday and Sunday this weekend instead of Friday and Saturday, though you would have to assume that that’s subject to a re-test coming back negative.

No word yet on potential TV for Sunday or whether this will affect whether Saturday’s game will be home/road, but we’ll update this post once we have more information. Unfortunately these games are no longer happening this weekend. Boston College and New Hampshire already have a "flex weekend" scheduled for February 5th-6th, so it would make sense to make those conference games now -- but we're only speculating.

More information to come.
