UMaine Men’s Ice Hockey Alters Opening Weekend

The UMaine Men’s Ice Hockey series against UMass will no longer be played this weekend. 

Maine will now play its opening series next weekend at UConn on Friday, Nov. 27.

The University of Maine women’s ice hockey season opening series at Holy Cross remains unchanged.

All schedules are subject to change based on local conditions and guidelines. 

Statement of President Joan Ferrini-Mundy:

“We are incredibly proud of our student athletes and very much want to see our Maine Black Bears begin their winter seasons. We are assessing each opportunity for our teams to compete within the context of rising COVID case counts and the threat of community transmission. 

“We will be working with our athletic conferences, UMaine Athletics, our safety professionals and stakeholders to determine next steps for our teams.”
