The Hockey East Announces Plans For 2020-21 Season

Hockey East Pre-Season Coaches Poll By Matt Noonan

The Hockey East Association announced this morning its intention to play games this year, despite the ongoing coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.

When exactly the 2020-21 season will begin for both its men and women’s members remains an unknown. But, according to today’s release, “a new start date and specifics of regular-season competition, will be released at a later date.”

Like most conferences and leagues that have expressed interest in providing its student-athletes with some competition this upcoming school year, the Hockey East admitted they will confront more challenges as they inch closer to a new season. And as expected, the league – again, like others – plans to put health and safety first, along with physical and mental health, too.

More will be added to this blog post as the day progresses, so please stay tuned!
