Because it's never too early to start thinking about Omaha Hockey. In addition to the NCHC schedule that has been published, I saw Alaska Fairbanks has a home and home with us on their schedule. They are here Oct. 15 and 16. With a series in Alaska Nov. 19th and 20th.
Interesting! I’m surprised we are playing them twice…
Seems to me they had a home and home series with ASU a few years back
We did play home-home with Arizona State a few years ago.
Obviously Kemp has never been afraid to help out a program in need. We had series with Wayne State (MI) and Findlay. We also dumped a series with Maine the first time UAH threatened to quit -- so both teams could play them.
We appear to have an agreement to play ASU every year -- it's been mentioned publicly. And I suspect Kemp and a few others are going to bend over backwards to help Alaska.
Obviously the loss of Huntsville and Anchorage (who were both on the original schedule last year) has likely left a couple holes in this years calendar. I also suspect the team talking to Robert Morris about a series when the university pulled the plug... was Omaha.
Jon, do you know if games in Alaska are exempted anymore? I vaguely remember the exemption going away around the same time Omaha left the CCHA for the WCHA -- which killed the Stampede.
