Weekend Series Preview: UD vs Slippery Rock

The Blue Hens are back and ready for high-energy games this year as we kick off the hockey season this weekend. The team will be taking on Slippery Rock University at the Fred Rust Arena Friday September 16 at 7pm and Saturday September 17 at 3:30pm. Last year, SRU finished the season with a record of 12-20, while the blue Hens finished strong with a 34-12 record.

The team is very excited to bring new talent to the table. The Captain’s this year for the Blue Hens are John Redgate, Vinny Zingarelli, and Cole Zucker.

Unfortunately the blue hens lost multiple key senior players from last year, but are confident that the dynamic of the team will be just as strong this season with the addition of eleven new rookies. These players seem to be very promising key components and hopefully will add a different dimension to an already established veteran team. We will also be looking forward to seeing which players will make a big impact on the ice this season.

Delaware is going to have to put up another tough fight to gain a win this weekend and we hope to see everyone come out and support the Hens for the first game of the season! If you can’t make it to the Rust, be sure to keep up with the games through our Twitter page, @UDHockey, this weekend!
