Colonials Embark on Tough All-D2 Schedule; Face Kentucky, West Virginia, & TCNJ for the First Time

This year's GW schedule is not for the faint-of-heart.  It starts off with a bang when, on September 22nd, GW will face cross-town rival Georgetown in a game at the newly-named Capital One Arena following the Capitals preseason game versus the Blues that night (click here for more info on that).  They then go on to finish off their own preseason with games against Maryland, NC State, and Virginia Tech - all teams that are perennially in the D2 Southeast Division Regionals conversation.  GW then settles into their in-conference schedule at the Stephen Russell Tournament with games against ACCHL opponents Elon, High Point, and Wake Forest.  The rest of the season features two games each against Atlantic Division opponents Navy, Georgetown, and St. Joe's as well as roadtrips to PA, NJ, and NY to face Millersville, TCNJ, and Army respectively - again, a trio of teams who usually are battling for the top of their conferences.  The schedule is rounded out by hosting for the first time Kentucky, West Virginia, and West Chester.  GW's home games will once again be split between Kettler Capitals Iceplex in Arlington, VA and Prince William Ice Center in Dale City, VA.

The 5th Annual GW Hockey Alumni Classic has also already been scheduled, this year it will take place Saturday, December 9th at 11am at Kettler Capitals Iceplex (click here for more info).
