DU's 2011-12 Scheduling Tidbits & Rumors

DU will host two exhibition games to open the 2011-12 season.  DU will play the US National Development-Under 18 Team that will likely feature Jarrod Mermis' younger brother Dakota.

Like last season DU will play a Canadian university on the same weekend.

Then DU will travel to Boston the following weekend of Oct. 14-15 to play Boston College and Boston University.

Denver will play WCHA opponents Nebraska Omaha, Bemidji State & Colorado College in home and away series.

The Pioneers will host North Dakota, Minnesota, Minnesota Duluth and Minnesota State at Magness Arena.

Oct. 28-29 DU will travel to Michigan Tech

The Denver Cup will be held around Thanksgiving and include Princeton, Providence and Enrico Blasi's Miami Red Hawks.

Over Christmas Break DU will travel to St. Cloud on Dec. 16-17.

Unlike many previous campaigns, DU's trip to Anchorage will be in January (27th & 28th).

Finally DU will travel to Wisconsin on Feb. 17-18.  I believe the DU Hockey Alumni Association will Roadtrip to Madison that weekend.

Can't wait to welcome our friends from UND.

I am sure the team is looking forward to the trip to Houghton.

I hope the games in Boston are televised.

D.G. That Madison trip two years ago was a blast. Let's commit to it now for our next year away game.

Oh hell yeah - count me in for Madison. I've heard that the best spirited college hockey venues are Michigan Wolveriens, Minnesota Gophers and Wisconsin Badgers. I've been to Engelstad and Marriuci already. The DCC matchup with MO should be a great game.
