Its time to drop the puck on a brand new season of New England Division III hockey with plenty of notable matchups on the docket, which you certainly won’t want to miss.

From introductions to new coaches to a championship rematches and more, there is no shortage of excitement surrounding the opening weekend of the 2018-19 season.

Every week, we will be highlighting 10 New England Division III games to watch (five men and five women’s contests), while providing links to their respective video streams or live stats. Additionally, we will be dishing out predictions for each contest we highlight, as well.


MEN’S GAMES (HOME TEAM IN CAPS) |*neutral site

CURRY COLLEGE over Nazareth* (October 26 at 3:30 P.M.): The Colonels earned its highest win-total in eight seasons last year and will try to build on that in its opening round action of the Buffalo State Tournament.

 Live Stats: http://bscintra.buffalostate.edu/athletics/hockey/xlive.htm

WORCESTER STATE over Becker (October 26 at 7:00 P.M.): The Lancers and Hawks begin the season in a renewal of the cross-town rivalry. Bragging rights are on the line, but equally important is the cause as they skate to raise awareness for ALS (All proceeds go to the Massachusetts Chapter of the ALS Association).

Live Stream: https://boxcast.tv/view/worcester-state-mens-ice-hockey-vs-becker-939432

No. 13 Norwich over ENDICOTT (October 27 at 4:00 P.M.): The Gulls are winless in their last five games against nationally-ranked opponents, so let’s see if that streak concludes on Saturday. The Cadets come in with extra motivation as it looks to start the post-Mike McShane era off with a bang.

Live Stream: https://portal.stretchinternet.com/ecgulls/

SAINT ANSLEM over Babson (October 27 at 4:00 P.M.): Saint Anselm returns seven of their top-ten scorers from last season, while Babson’s roster features a slew of underclassmen. Growing pains could be expected for these Beavers in the first few weeks.

Live Stats: https://www.saintanselmhawks.com/sports/mice/2018-19/boxscores/20181027_kydk.xml 

Fitchburg State over NEW ENGLAND COLLEGE (October 27 at 7:00 P.M.): The Falcons and Pilgrims open against each other for the sixth consecutive season. The two have traded wins in the last three meetings, but the Falcons should break the trend this time around.

Live Stream: https://athletics.nec.edu/watch/


WOMEN’S GAMES (HOME TEAM IN CAPS) 

CASTLETON over Morrisville State (October 26 at 4:00 P.M.): Castleton coach Mike Venezia seeks his first career win against Morrisville State after spending time as an assistant from 2015-17 with the Mustangs.

Live Stats: http://www.castletonsports.com/sports/wice/2018-19/boxscores/20181026_pxjp.xml

NICHOLS over Suffolk (October 26 at 6:40 P.M.): Women’s hockey officially begins at Suffolk University this winter as the Rams (21 underclassmen) matchup against a senior-laden Nichols team. Advantage goes to the Bison in this home-and-home weekend series.

Live Stream: https://nicholsathletics.com/sports/2015/8/26/WICE_0826151204.aspx

UMASS BOSTON over Stevenson (October 26 at 7:00 P.M.): The already established talent of UMass Boston shines through in this one as interim head coach Dom Lozzi goes for her first career victory on the bench.

Live Stream: https://portal.stretchinternet.com/umb/portal.htm?eventId=479798&streamType=video

UNIVERSITY OF NEW ENGLAND over Southern Maine (October 26 at 7:00 P.M.): The Huskies hold a 14-13 lead in scoring in their last nine contests, but the Nor’easters have the advantage in this one by skating at home.

Live Stream: https://athletics.une.edu/sports/2015/2/2/whock_watch.aspx

Norwich over ELMIRA (October 27 at 3:00 P.M.): Didn’t take us too long for a rematch of the epic Div. III National Championship battle from last March, so this is a must watch on Saturday.
