Suffolk’s hockey program will soon have a new league to call home.
The University’s Athletics Department recently accepted a New England Hockey Conference invitation to the Rams men’s and newly added women’s programs. They will become full-time NEHC members beginning in the 2018-19 season.
“During an exciting time for Suffolk athletics, with the new addition of sports including women’s hockey to our growing varsity athletics lineup, I’m thrilled for the invitation for both Suffolk hockey programs to join the long-standing tradition of the NEHC,” said Athletics Director Cary McConnell.
“To join a group of top-tier programs not only allows Suffolk to offer competitive experiences on the ice, but the NEHC’s geographic footprint eliminates midweek travel, which gives our student-athletes more time dedicated to their primary commitment – their education.”
