CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - A showdown against archrival Yale at Madison Square Garden represents just one of the highlights of the 2013-14 season as the Harvard men’s hockey team released its 2013-2014 schedule Wednesday. Harvard will play 14 of its 29 regular-season games on home ice, as well as a foreign exhibition in late December.
Ted Donato, the Robert D. Ziff '88 Head Coach for Harvard Men's Ice Hockey, returns for his 10th season behind the bench of the Crimson. During that span, the former Crimson captain has guided his club to a pair of NCAA Tournament berths and two Ivy and ECAC Hockey titles.
Harvard opens the season on home ice against Bentley Oct. 26, and then quickly turns its focus towards ECAC play Oct. 29, as it visits Rensselaer in the start of a home-and-home, hosting RPI Nov. 1. This kicks off a four-game homestand at Bright Hockey Center, the longest of the season for the Crimson. Harvard ends its 2013 portion of the schedule with a quieter December, visiting Brown on the sixth and Yale on the seventh, and hosting a foreign exhibition against the Russian Red Stars Dec. 29.
The Crimson opens 2014 with back-to-back home games against Boston University and Quinnipiac Jan. 4 and 6.
Harvard’s first game away from Bright Hockey Center in 2014 will be a memorable one, as it travels to Madison Square Garden to face off against the Bulldogs of Yale in the first-ever “Rivalry in Ice”. The game will be broadcast to a national audience on the NBC Sports Network. Home games against Cornell (Jan. 17) and Colgate (Jan. 18) follow, and the Crimson plays at Union and home against Princeton before the always-anticipated Beanpot Tournament.
The annual Boston showdown begins Feb. 3, as Harvard will face Northeastern in the first round of the 62nd Beanpot Tournament at TD Garden . The second round will take place the following Monday, Feb. 10.
A tough road trip to Clarkson and St. Lawrence takes place the weekend of Feb. 14-15, and Harvard wraps up its home schedule the following weekend against Yale and Brown. The Crimson closes its season with key back-to-back ECAC road games, as it travels to face Colgate Feb. 28, and Cornell March 1.
Men’s season tickets will go on sale August 12 and individual game tickets will be available September 4.
