The Huskies have high expectations for the new season, which will begin on Saturday night at Matthews Arena. As head coach Jim Madigan put it, “We want to win Hockey East, win the Beanpot, and then get to the national championship.”
The Beanpot. Hockey East. The NCAA championship. Winning all three is this season’s goal for men’s hockey. Here are the five biggest storylines heading into the new campaign, which begins on Saturday night at Matthews Arena against Vermont.
The Relay For Life groups led by students at Northeastern, BU, BC, and Harvard are engaging in a friendly competition to raise the most money for the American Cancer Society before the Beanpot championship game on Feb. 10.
The men’s hockey team will face off against No. 5 Boston College in the semifinal round of the 60th annual Beanpot Tournament at 8 p.m. tonight.
Alumnus Jim Madigan is a 26-year hockey veteran with three Beanpot titles and a Stanley Cup ring.
