The Big 10 influence

Feb. 17, 2017 | Yesterday's U18/Varsity hockey practice took place in a different venue: Penn State's Pegula Ice Arena.

The team is currently in Pittsburgh for their MPHL league playoffs and were fortunate enough to skate on the Big 10 team's home ice yesterday. They were also treated to a tour of the Nittany Lions' first-class facilities by the university's coaching staff and then took in the city's sold-out NHL home game versus the Winnipeg Jets. All that hockey talent definitely inspired the boys, who beat long-time foes Ridley College this afternoon in a double overtime thriller, 2-1. The action continues tomorrow afternoon in semifinal play. Best of luck, Bears!
