Y’all already know I’m a proud Midwesterner so the news of women’s hockey being back starting November 20th has me running through a brick wall. Not only will the WCHA be back from November 20th to December 19th, with a break for the Holidays, but the ECAC will be starting up then as well.
Here is the WCHA’s – western colleges – composite schedule. They tried to line up Big 10 schools vs Big 10 schools and NSIC vs NSIC, mostly due to the difference in each division’s COVID testing abilities. Following the break, the the WCHA plan to play more games staring (hopefully) January 1st.
For the ECAC – eastern schools – have to wait on half of their schools. The Ivy League teams can’t play until January 1st. The ECAC is making do with what they have seeing as Clarkson and Quinnipiac will play four games against one another starting November 28th. Knowing the amount of talented players that come out of those teams -especially Clakson- that’s gonna be an absolute treat to watch.
I’m so excited to have some women’s hockey back in our lives. It just doesn’t feel like fall without it. I’ll admit that I don’t know a lot about college hockey in general but I’m ready to get into it. This is the time that Olympians and Hall of Famers are made. I bet these kids (yes, I’m their age and I said kids) are excited to get back out on the ice. It’s been a while since we’ve seen these players out there and I can’t wait to get back to talking about them. I know BU’s letter said that CBS would stream their series but I gotta make sure that’s not just for Boston. I’m not 100% sure about streaming/watching but I’ll be sure to talk about it on my Twitter so shoot me a follow and I’ll let you know.
