Earlier this week, it was announced that Williams College’s men’s ice hockey team would be skating against Trinity College at Frozen Fenway on January 7, 2014 at 7:30 p.m.
Neither team participated in Frozen Fenway in 2012, but will be the second part of an NCAA Division III doubleheader, as Salem State and UMass Boston will face-off in the first game, which begins at 4:30 p.m.
As noted in the release on the NESCAC (New England Small College Athletic Conference) website, Frozen Fenway is a 17-day series, which begins on Sunday, December 28 and concludes on Sunday, January 13. Over the 17-day period, hockey fans will be treated to a variety of collegiate and high school games, along with two free community skating dates for Boston residents.

There’ll be hockey at Fenway Park next January as eight Hockey East teams will take part in two doubleheaders at Frozen Fenway 2014, according to the league’s press release this afternoon.
“We are excited about the return of hockey to Fenway,” said Hockey East commissioner Joe Bertagna in a statement. “We are particularly pleased that with these two doubleheaders, all of our men’s programs will have had the opportunity to experience Frozen Fenway, including the University of Notre Dame, our newest member.”

The first doubleheader will occur on Saturday, January 4, 2014, as Merrimack College will face-off against Providence College, which will be followed by Notre Dame and Boston College.
UMass Lowell and Northeastern University will skate against each other in the first game the following Saturday, January 11, before Boston University and Maine face-off in the second game.
Boston’s Mayor Tom Menino, who was quoted in the release, expressed his excitement for the return of Frozen Fenway by saying, “Last year, more than 90,000 people came to Fenway Park to watch college or high school hockey or enjoy free public skating.”
Excluding the eight hockey games, there will be two free public skating days for the City of Boston residents, too.
Game times and ticket information for both doubleheaders will be announced at a later date.
