The Utica University Pioneers men's hockey team will have an extra week to prepare for the NCAA Division III hockey championship tournament after receiving a bye during Monday's selection show. That means Heenan's Pioneers won't play until the quarterfinals at home on March 18th.
The last time the Utica College Men's Hockey team played officially was back on March 7th, when Utica won the UCHC championship with a 6-2 win over Wilkes University. Utica was the favorite to win the Division III NCAA Men's Championship that ultimately would never be played because of COVID-19. Now, it looks like we're about to start the 2020-21 season and based on the NCAA Tournament schedule, it will be an abbreviated season.
The Utica College men's hockey team is the #1 seed in this weekend's UCHC playoffs and receives a bye to the semi-finals where they'll play a two game series on Saturday and Sunday at 2 p.m. at the Adirondack Bank Center. Here's how to buy tickets.
