Despite the pandemic, Army’s men’s hockey team will play this winter.

The Black Knights released a 26-game schedule Friday after Atlantic Hockey announced its format for the upcoming season on Thursday.

Army will play 13 games at home at Tate Rink, beginning with a Nov. 14 contest vs. LIU. The season will end with the Atlantic Hockey Tournament, which will include all 11 teams and be played over three weekends, culminating with a return to Buffalo’s LECOM HarborCenter.

“We are so grateful that we will have an opportunity to play games in the near future,” Army head coach Brian Riley said in a statement. “I’m very proud of our guys for the self-discipline they have shown to stay safe and set us up to have a season. We are also very grateful to the leadership team here at West Point for the plan they implemented months ago to put us in a position where we could have a hockey season at Tate Rink.”

Tate Rink will not host fans at this time. If conditions change, ticket information will be announced at a later date.

Army will not host Air Force this season, but will play two back-to-back games in Colorado Springs on Jan. 15 and 16.
