PROVIDENCE, R.I. - The Providence College women's ice hockey team will play an outdoor contest at Fenway Park in Boston, Mass. on January 10, 2012. The Friars will take on Dartmouth at 3 p.m. The contest will be part of the 2012 Sun Life Frozen Fenway event. It is a 16-day celebration of hockey featuring collegiate and scholastic games.

"To play the game we love in one of the most historic cathedrals in all of sports is very exciting. It is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity not many college players get the chance to have in their careers," explained Providence Head Coach Bob Deraney, a native of nearby West Roxbury, Mass. "We all thank Fenway Sports Management, Hockey East and especially Providence College for giving us this opportunity.

"For me personally, going to Fenway Park my entire life, I know making the move from the stands to being a part of the action is something very few people from Boston have the opportunity to do. It's not lost on me how very special it is for us to be taking part in such a wonderful event as 2012 Sun Life Frozen Fenway. "

Tickets for the college hockey game are available by phone at 877-REDSOX9 and online at redsox.com/frozenfenway .

The meeting with Dartmouth was originally scheduled to be played at Schneider Arena on December 31. Should inclement weather on January 10 preclude the outdoor game at Fenway, the contest will be moved back to Schneider Arena at 7 p.m. on January 10.



This will be the second time the Friars have played outdoors. Last February, Providence defeated Connecticut, 4-3, at Rentschler Field in East Hartford, Conn. during the Whaler Hockey Fest celebration.
