Army's hockey trip to Penn State is on; Cadets to be 1st opponent in new Pegula Ice Arena

WEST POINT, N.Y. - The Army men's hockey team will make the trip to Penn State for the first game in the Nittany Lions' new rink.

Despite the uncertainty surrounding the shutdown of the federal government, school officials say the Black Knights will make the trip to play in the Pegula Ice Arena on Friday night.

Buffalo Sabres owner Terry Pegula will drop the ceremonial first puck to formally usher in the Nittany Lions' first season in the newly established Big Ten Hockey Conference.

Pegula donated $88 million to build the rink and also gave another $14 million to his alma mater for related costs, including scholarships.

Quote of the Day

It's really exciting. I'm pretty sure that when I play my first game I'm going to be emotional. To be back on the ice playing a game, being in game situations, with all the routines and rituals I do before games and during the game, I feel like I'm going to be emotional. I'm going to be really happy.
