Merrimack and UMass will play three Hockey East games next season, beginning on Oct. 27 at the Mullins Center. The Warriors will host UMass on Oct. 28 and travel back to Amherst on Feb. 6.
With Notre Dame joining the Big Ten, Hockey East is moving to an unbalanced 24-game schedule next season. Teams will play six league opponents twice, and four league opponents three times.
The unbalanced schedule is adding two more road games and two more home games for each Hockey East school. We now know, based on schedule releases, that Merrimack’s two “extra” road games will be at Providence and at UMass.
