The Blue Hens are back this weekend for the Home Opener to take on the Penn State Berks. The first game will be held Friday, September 27 at 7:00pm and the second game will be Saturday, September 28 at noon; both taking place at the Fred Rust Arena. The Blue Hens are looking forward to starting their 2019-2020 season in their home arena.
The Penn State Berks had their opening weekend last weekend, where they started their season with an 8-0 win over the Millersville Marauders. However, on Saturday they took an 8-4 loss to Cornell. This time last year, the Blue Hens took an 8-3 victory over the Berks, and we hope this time around will be no different.
This week’s player to watch is #22 Michael Nisky. Mike is a senior forward and one of the Blue Hens’ team captains. He is entering his fourth year playing for the University of Delaware. The Eastern States Collegiate Hockey League named Mike 1st Team All-League for the 2018-2019 season. We are looking forward to seeing Mike and co-captain Chris Mazzella lead their team to more victories this season!
