Nine Hockey East games on Quinnipiac's 2014-15 schedule

Quinnipiac's schedule for next season will feature at least nine games against Hockey East competition, with another possible in the yet-to-be named tournament at Bridgeport's Webster Bank Arena.

Rand Pecknold didn't have dates for his non-league games, but the Bobcats have lined up two-game, home-and-away series set with UMass Lowell, Merrimack and Massachusetts. Northeastern will be at Hamden for two games and UConn for one. Another potential date with UConn could come at the Dec. 27-28 tournament in Bridgeport, a tournament field that also includes Sacred Heart and Union. The Bobcats final non-conference game is at home with Bentley.

Formerly known as the UConn Hockey Classic, the new event is expected to undergo a name change. Coaches are supporting the Tim Taylor Cup for the annual event, which will continue to take place between Christmas and New Year's. UConn, Sacred Heart and Quinnipiac have committed for the next several years. The hope is that Yale will eventually join to make it an all-Connecticut field. Yale has had conversations with representatives of Webster Bank Arena, which took over the tournament from UConn, and is studying it for future schedules.
