Not bad with the exception of Canisus...after this season no more AHA, Red

The team needs cannon fodder.

if i am not mistaken, Canisius has a Walsh on staff. (or on the team, depending on your point of view)

The press release and season ticket info: http://www.goblackbears.com/sports/m-hockey/2014-15/releases/20140624ma218p

This will be the first time Anchorage has played at the Alfond since 1990 and Notre Dame's first since 1991.
The UVM and UMA noncon games should end this season, and Maine will have another exemption for the Icebreaker. The only noncon road game Maine will have to play is Union. 11 road conference games, two at Union, three in Portland is 16. That means another 18-20 home games and the door will be open for the likes of Denver, Yale and a B1G team (and the aforementioned cannon fodder). I would expect one road series @NoDak or Denver with a return trip in 15-16 and the Duluth series starting in 16-17. That means 18 games in Alfond and 21 in the state of Maine next season.

He's talking about next year when Maine hosts the Icebreaker in Portland, plus the annual UNH game.

Canisius was in the Atlantic Hockey Championship game against Robert Morris. Robert Morris won ( 7-4 I think). Canisius had a losing record during the season but peaked late to challenge for the league championship

And they went 6-0 to win the AHA tournament and appeared in the NCAAs in 2013.

Huh? $20 per seat seems like a pretty good deal to me.....much better than $50.

Edit: Looks like the "donor" seats are shut off to regular season tix holders not willing to pony up......nevermind.

I was confused as well. To me seat back equals donor seats but apparently that isn't the case. It says a lot about the prices of the donor seats that they don't mention them in the press release.

Would make sense to fill the Building,sell food/programs and the always CASH Cow Bear Ness. Sports Store. Oh well good for them.

I suppose there are advantages to playing in front of lots and lots of fans who appreciate hockey. And Teddy is from a maritime province, not a big, crime-ridden city, like Tampa and LA. Maybe he would prefer to live in the wheat and oil fields.
