BU announces 2010-2011 schedule

For the second time in three years, BU will kick off its season in the Ice Breaker Tournament, but this time it will away from Agganis Arena with the Terriers in St. Louis to meet Wisconsin on Oct. 8 and either Notre Dame or Holy Cross two days later.

BU’s schedule includes 18 home games, three in-season tournaments (IceBreaker, The Shillelagh in Chicago and The Beanpot), out-of-conference games against Harvard, Brown and RPI, and two exhibition games.

In addition to meeting Univ. of Toronto for a preseason tuneup on Oct. 2, BU has now added a Nov. 3 exhibition match up with the Swedish U20 National Team. For incoming freshmen Matt Nieto and Adam Clendening, that game will be somewhat of a reunion with many of the players they faced this past Spring as members of Team USA in the World U18 championships. Team USA defeated the Swedes in the gold-medal game.

The home opener will be an Oct. 16 matchup with Don “Toot” Cahoon’s UMass Minutemen.
