CC hockey schedule coming into focus

CC Hockey vs Wisconsin

Colorado College vs Wisconsin, Broadmoor World Arena, Nov. 25, 2016

Here is my updated draft of the Colorado College hockey 2018-19 schedule after the WCHA announced its composite schedule on Wednesday.

CC opens the season at Alaska-Anchorage on Saturday, Oct. 6 and concludes the nonconference road series on Sunday, Oct. 7.

The home-opener features a WCHA foe, Alabama-Huntsville, on Oct. 12. The Chargers play at Denver the next night. It is unknown who CC’s foe will be on Oct. 13.

The nonconference road series at Arizona State Dec. 14-15 was confirmed by the independent earlier Wednesday.

The Tigers are coming off a 15-17-5 season with a tie for fifth place in the league standings.

I put XXX where nonconference weekends, including Air Force, or byes are likely. I would expect one weekend in October to be a bye with nonleague games expected that month.

Home games in ALL CAPS.
