Newark, Del. — After taking a victory over Navy Ice Hockey last weekend, the Blue Hens will travel to Alabama this weekend to face the Crimson Tide. The first game will take place Friday (Nov. 15) at 7 p.m. Central at Pelham Civic Complex in Pelham, AL. The second game will be on Saturday (Nov. 16) at 7 p.m. CST in the same arena.
In their last weekend series, Alabama took two tough losses to Missouri State. On Friday (Nov. 1) they lost, 9-3, and on Saturday (Nov. 2) they lost again, 4-2. They have a current record of 0-10-0.
This week’s player to watch is defenseman Michael Patterson. Mike is a senior political science major from White Plains, N.Y. In addition to protecting the blue line, he has played a large role in keeping plays alive in the offensive zone through the start of the season. Mike’s teammates look to him as a consistent physical force.
