PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Providence College women's ice hockey Head Coach Bob Deraney and his staff have released the team's schedule for the upcoming 2012-13 season. The slate includes 34 games and one exhibition.
The Friars will play 18 contests at Schneider Arena, including the season opening exhibition against Canadian power McGill University on September 29. Other home highlights include visits from WCHA foes Bemidji State and St. Cloud St. The Beavers will travel to Schneider Arena to help PC kick off the regular season on October 5 and again on October 6. St. Cloud will arrive for a pair on October 27 and 28.
Another non-conference highlight will be the 18th Annual Mayor's Cup. Providence will visit cross-town rival Brown on November 23rd at Meehan Auditorium to once again decide city bragging rights. Also of note, Providence will host perennial national power Dartmouth on New Year's Eve, a rematch of last season's match-up at Fenway Park.
The conference portion of the schedule includes a November 30 rematch with visiting Boston University. This past March, Providence pushed the ninth-ranked Terriers to double overtime in the thrilling Hockey East Championship before falling, 2-1. The Friars reached their sixth Hockey East title game by shutting out #7 Northeastern in the semifinals, 2-0. Northeastern will get a rematch at Schneider Arena in the upcoming regular season's finale on February 23.
The upcoming campaign will also feature the Friars' traditional charitable efforts, including the annual Skating Strides Against Breast Cancer fundraiser and the Domestic Violence Awareness game.
The 2012-13 PC women's hockey team will feature nine returning upperclassmen from the Hockey East finalists, including seniors Nicole Anderson (Jordan, Minn.), Jessica Cohen (Anchorage, Alaska), Emily Groth (Monona, Wisc.) and Jessica Vella (Pickering, Ontario), as well as former All-Hockey East Rookie selections Corinne Buie (Edina, Minn.) and Rebecca Morse (Westfield, New Jersey). The group has helped the program continue its trend of advancing to the Hockey East Semifinals or beyond in each of the league's ten years. Providence is also the only Hockey East program never to miss the conference tournament.
Tickets to Providence home games are available by calling the PC Ticket Office, at (401) 865 GOPC, or by visiting Friars.com.
