6/22/14 - UNC Bears Hockey 2014-15 Game Schedule released
The UNC Bears Men's Ice Hockey team is very excited to release their official game schedule for the upcoming 2014-15 season.
The Bears will begin the season playing two exhibition/preseason games, the first on Saturday September 13, 2014, at the Greeley Ice Haus against the WSHL RoughRiders. The RoughRiders are a Junior 'A'
hockey program based out of Boulder, CO, and are a member of the Western States Hockey League (WSHL). The second preseason game for the Bears will be held in Cheyenne, WY, against the Cheyenne Stampede on Friday, September 19, 2014. The Stampede are also a Junior 'A' team and a member of the WSHL. Coming just a week after the Bears' final tryout to determine the roster for the 2014-15 season, both of these games will provide a great opportunity for players to start developing chemistry with one another before the start of the regular season and will allow Head Coach Ken Fikis and the rest of the Bears' coaching staff to begin piecing together the team they want moving forward into the Bears' home opener.
The UNC Bears will play the University of Colorado - Denver for their home opener on Thursday night, September 23, 2014.
Several very important home games that you won't want to miss include games against the University of Colorado (DI), Denver University (DII), Weber State (DII), and Utah State (DII).
Other notable DIII opponents for the UNC Bears this coming season include Texas Tech, University of South Florida, University of Nebraska, and Northern Arizona. Along with these opponents, the Bears will have the usual exciting games against Metro State (two home games), Wyoming (two home games), and Colorado State (two home games).
All game times right now are TBA, but all home game times at the Greeley Ice Haus will be finalized and updated to the website very soon! Keep posted and an announcement will be made as soon as this has be done.
With just a couple more months until the start of 2014-15 season, the Bears coaching staff and players are hard at work in preparations for a hopeful run at the National Tournament and for anticipations of a very exciting season! We cannot wait to see all you Bears' Hockey fans in September and hope everyone is having a safe and fun summer!
