Chicago to Host 2013 Hockey City Classic
Get ready for another edition of outdoor hockey in Chicago! Following the wildly successful NHL Winter Classic game at Wrigley Field in 2009, four college teams will face off at another beloved Chicago venue early next year. The 2013 Office Max Hockey City Classic will take place February 17, 2013 at Soldier Field.
The Notre Dame Fighting Irish Men’s Team will take to the ice against the Miami (OH) Redhawks first, with puck drop set for 12:00PM CST. Both teams play in the CCHA conference (Div I). In the 2011-12 season, Miami finished 4th in their conference, with ND in 8th out of 11 teams. As of 10/22/12, Miami’s ranked 4th in the nation (OSCHO.com rankings) and is favored to win in this match-up.
The next game will spotlight two hard-hitting teams in the WCHA conference (Div I). The Minnesota Golden Gophers, who have started this season off hot 3-1-0 and are ranked #2 in the country will face off against the Wisconsin Badgers at 3:00PM CST. The Badgers are coming off a rough season in 2011-12 (10th of 12 teams), but this game is slated for late in the regular season, so there’s plenty of time for the Badgers to catch up to the highly-ranked Gophers.
