Highlighted by a full Hockey East slate and non-conference home games against defending national champion, Minnesota Duluth, as well as Big Ten opponents Penn State and Wisconsin, Merrimack announced its 2019-20 men’s hockey schedule on Monday.

Merrimack will play a total of 34 games – 17 at home and 17 on the road – with ten of Merrimack’s contests being non-league affairs and the remaining 24 coming in Hockey East action. The Warriors will play four NCAA Tournament programs from last year, including three Frozen Four participants, highlighted by defending national champion in Minnesota Duluth coming to Lawler Rink for a pair of games in December.

All home games during the upcoming year are set to start at 7 p.m. with the exception of the two contests against Minnesota Duluth, which will be 4 p.m. puck drops on both Sunday, Dec. 29, and Monday, Dec. 30.

“We are looking forward to the 2019-20 campaign. The Hockey East Schedule is always a challenging one with some of the country’s top-ranked teams appearing in Lawler throughout the season,” said Merrimack head coach Scott Borek. “This year we are particularly excited about the non-league matches at home, with the Big 10 appearing twice in our building before the end of November with Wisconsin on October 12 and Penn State on November 29th. Lawler will also welcome the two-time defending national champions Minnesota-Duluth for a pair to finish 2019, December 29th and 30th. While we will be young with 23 underclassmen, we are excited to test our mettle against some of the nation’s best.”

Merrimack will begin its season with a five-game non-conference slate, starting with its only long-distance trip of the season, taking on Lake Superior State (Oct. 5-6).
