Sneak Peek At DU's 2009-10 Schedule

We still don't have DU's Official 2009-10 Hockey Schedule, but some dates and teams are known.

The University of Nebraka-Omaha is the fourth team in the Denver Cup, not Boston University as previously mentioned.

The October 17th game against Ohio State may be played in Nationwide Arena home of the Columbus Blue Jackets.

So they are going back to the Friday and Saturday game with CC. It would have been nice to have Boston U back in the Wells Fargo tournament.

I wonder if the players know how good this team can be?

Any word on when the official schedules come out?

Last year it came out with the season ticket renewals on May 9th.

Not sure why the delay this year.

Still kind of disappointed if the CC and North Dakota games are during Winter break. Overall I look forward to it.

North Dakota series is set during final exams, not quite on the winter break.

DU students should use the series to blow off a little steam

Just renewed my tickets today. Can't wait to get the season going!

I agree it's too bad CC & NODAK are scheduled that way - but either way, those are likely to be the most exciting games of the year.
I'm not too excited about the OSU series again. It would be nice to face a "bigger" marquee team from the east for that series (although in '08 they managed to out-perform us on the scoreboard). Nothing against the Canadian schools - but I'm ready for a little more exciting pre-season opponent, too.
But hey - I'll take my DU hockey any way it comes.

Has there ever been talk about having a scrimmage agains the club team or is that verboten?

puck swami said...

The DU exhibition game will almost always be against a Canadian university, since the game doesn't count against the NCAA game ceiling. If it were against an American school, it would count.

And no, I don't see DU ever scrimmaging the DU club hockey team. The downsides of that are many, the upsides, few.

DU did last play a club team in the fall of 1981, when Iowa State played a two game series at DU Arena. DU scored 20 goals in the two lopsided victories, 10 goals each night.
