Hockey East eyeing conference-only (or conference-heavy) schedule
http://hockeyeastonline.com/men/articles...season.php

This is the first I have seen a discussion regarding scheduling a winter sport.

The statement says the league will "emphasize" a conference schedule in order to complete a season.

Quote:By emphasizing competition between Hockey East member institutions, the league allows itself to make significant and often difficult decisions in real time that will protect the health and safety of all parties involved in the administration of the conference schedule. Further, Hockey East's geography allows the league to conduct conference competition, including the men's and women's championships, while mitigating non-essential travel and allowing maximum flexibility to adjust its schedule based on ever-changing developments and best medical practices surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.

It makes sense- Hockey East is solely located in the six New England states who have heavy travel restrictions and declining caseloads. You could also squeeze in a round-robin schedule between January 1 and the end of the season.

I am just hoping that there is a season. It is unfortunate that things were cut short last year as UConn men's hockey was on a roll. Both our men's and women's teams should be strong again this year if they get to actually play.

Makes sense since half of your non-conference is ECAC and most of that conference won't start till January.
