The Blue Hens have been celebrating Hockey Holidays all week by working a booth in the Trabant Student Center selling raffle tickets for a variety of prizes. Their week-long effort has been leading up to their game this weekend, at which they will continue to sell raffle tickets for prizes such as UD Hockey apparel, gift cards to El Diablo and Buddy’s Burgers, a signed stick from the Flyers, and more! The Hens will be playing Towson University for the second time this season and will take place this Saturday at 8:15 at UD’s Gold Arena. Winners for the raffles will be chosen and announced there.
Just three weeks ago, the Blue Hens blew Towson away, beating them 6-1. Since that win, the Hens took their Thanksgiving break and came back to face Stony Brook University last weekend. In the two-game series, the Hens managed to come out with two wins against one of the team’s biggest rivals.
Player to watch this week is #5 Harrison Good! Known as “Goody” by his teammates, he has recently been on the rise. Teammate Cam Piorkowski says Goody has been “making crisp passes, wheeling around the ice, and ripping bombs from the point.” Cam also mentioned that Goody reminds him of Erik Karlsson, “a really solid player on the backend.” Harrison Good has made such an impact on the team playing defense; we can’t wait to see the great things he continues to do!
Be sure to keep up with the team and show your support through social media this weekend!
