Happy hockey season! The Boston College men's hockey team returns to the ice to host Canadian powerhouse University of New Brunswick in what could be a stiff exhibition test at 7.
This will be our first look at an entirely new-look Boston College team, right on down to the brand new jerseys they'll be sporting on the ice. With three highly-touted freshmen joining the ranks and a talented sophomore class being expected to step up and contribute, it will be interesting to see how things come together.
Standing in their way is a UNB team that is 3-0 in their own preseason and has high hopes of making a run at their 5th CIS University Cup in 9 years. They're a skilled, experienced team, with a number of players with some minor pro hockey background. This will likely not be the walkover we are used to in these exhibition games.
