Union will host Merrimack Oct. 6
Merrimack released its 2012-13 hockey schedule Tuesday night, and the Warriors will open the season at Union Saturday, Oct. 6.
This could be the Dutchmen's season opener. Union has yet to confirm this.
It will be Merrimack's first visit to Messa Rink since Oct. 18, 2003, when the Dutchmen posted a 3-1 win.
The two teams met last Dec. 17 at Merrimack, and the Dutchmen skated to a 3-1 win.
Merrimack played a big role in Union's Division I history. The Warriors were the Dutchmen's first opponent in Union's Division I debut Nov. 1, 1991. The Warriors edge the Dutchmen, 7-6, at then-Achilles Rink.
