PC Men’s Hockey Releases 2020-2021 Schedule
Providence College Press Release
PROVIDENCE, R.I. – The Hockey East Association announced today details for its Return to Play plan for the 2020-21 season, including composite league schedules, featuring a double round robin format. Hockey East also announced its NESN schedule through January 1 and news that other games streamed through its partnership with ViacomCBS Digital will be made free to fans all year.
Three of the final five weekends of regular season play in each league are designated as Flex Weekends. These Flex Weekend contests are tentative and opponents may be adjusted in order to maintain a competitively balanced schedule for each team. If games are postponed during the regular season, these Flex Weekend games will be rescheduled with those postponed games. Any games played during Flex Weekends will be designated as “non-conference” games and will not count toward the Army ROTC Hockey East Standings. Additional Flex Dates have been added throughout the schedule where availability allowed to maximize flexibility to play a full regular season schedule and prioritize the student-athlete experience.
Coming off its eighth-consecutive winning season, the Providence College men’s hockey team unveiled its 26-game schedule for the upcoming 2020-21 campaign.
Providence will kick off the 2020-21 season for a home-and-home set against Boston College (Nov. 27-28), followed by home-and-home series against Northeastern (Dec. 4-5), UMass (Dec. 19-20) and New Hampshire (Dec. 27-28).
The Friars open 2021 on New Years Day for the first of two home games against Vermont (Jan. 1-2), before battling Boston University in a home-and-home series from Jan. 8-9. The lone multi-game road trip comes on the weekend of Jan. 15-16 as the Friars head up to Orono for a pair against Maine. Providence closes out the month of January with home-and-home sets against UMass (Jan. 22-23) and UMass Lowell (Jan. 29-30).
The February slate will consist of home-and-home series against Northeastern (Feb. 5-6), UConn (Feb. 12-13), Boston College (Feb. 19-20) and Merrimack (Feb. 26-27) to conclude the regular season.
Hockey East will once again partner with NESN and ViacomCBS Digital to provide fans across the world the opportunity to view every single Hockey East game in the 2020-21 season.
