The Huskies are headed to Fenway.

In an his­toric moment for North­eastern Uni­ver­sity ath­letics, the men’s hockey team will face-​​off against the Boston Col­lege Eagles at Fenway Park on Sat­urday, Jan. 14, 2012. The puck will drop at 4 p.m.

Our hope at North­eastern is for our student-​​athletes to make mem­o­ries that will last them a life­time,” North­eastern Ath­letics Director Peter Roby said. “Playing hockey against Boston Col­lege at Fenway Park as part of its 100th year cel­e­bra­tion will cer­tainly be a memory our players, coaches, alumni and fans will never forget.”

The game — which is part of the Sun Life Frozen Fenway 2012 series — will be played after Catholic Memo­rial School and Boston Col­lege High School com­pete in the first game of a dou­ble­header on Fenway ice.

The North­eastern hockey team, family and alumni are hon­ored to be a part of the Frozen Fenway expe­ri­ence,” North­eastern head coach Jim Madigan said. “This game is espe­cially mean­ingful to North­eastern because the Boston Red Sox used to play at the Hunt­ington Avenue Grounds, on land that is now part of our campus. We are pleased to take on such a for­mi­dable oppo­nent in Boston Col­lege. This will be an expe­ri­ence that everyone involved will remember for the rest of their lives.”

Tickets go on sale Friday, Nov. 18, at noon on redsox​.com. Husky season ticket holders and stu­dents, fac­ulty and staff will also be eli­gible to pur­chase tickets through North­eastern. Infor­ma­tion regarding ticket sales and reg­is­tra­tion for the pre-​​game recep­tion will be released soon.

The Jan. 14 matchup will be the first out­door game in North­eastern men’s ice hockey his­tory, and only the second out­door hockey game for the North­eastern ath­letics pro­gram. The women’s ice hockey team played New Hamp­shire in Jan­uary 2010 as part of the orig­inal Sun Life Frozen Fenway Series, in the first-​​ever women’s out­door col­lege hockey game.

The men’s out­door game will also serve as a sneak pre­view of the first round of the 60th annual Beanpot Tour­na­ment, when the Huskies and Eagles drop the puck at the TD Garden on Monday, Feb. 6 at 8 p.m.

In their first meeting this season, Boston Col­lege escaped with a 4–3-overtime vic­tory on Oct. 22 at Matthews Arena. The two squads will meet next on Friday, Nov. 11 in Chestnut Hill, in prepa­ra­tion for the hockey rivals’ out­door spectacle.
