Sacred Heart, Atlantic Hockey set to start hockey season in November

The Atlantic Hockey Association announced that the upcoming season will begin the weekend of Nov. 13-14.

The regular-season schedule will range from 24 to 28 games. The AHA will have two pods to limit the travel and potential COVID-19 risk.

Sacred Heart will be in the eastern pod with AIC, Army, Bentley and Holy Cross while Canisius, Mercyhurst, Niagara, RIT and Robert Morris.

Each team will play the other programs in their pod five times with two games against Air Force and LIU.

“First off, I’m extremely excited to be announcing we have an approved league schedule for the 2020-21 season. It’s been a long process, and involved quite a bit of discussion, but it’s a testament to all those involved that we have managed to get Atlantic Hockey on the ice in 2020-21,” AHA Commissioner Robert DeGregorio said in a release. “We put this schedule together to maximize the student-athlete experience during such uncertain times. We found a way to schedule up to 28 games while maintaining a focus on the health and safety of all parties by reducing travel times and overnight trips as much as we could.”

The AHA schedule will be released at a later date.

Sacred Heart finished second behind AIC in the 2019-20 AHA standings with an 18-8-2 conference record.
