NORTHFIELD, Vt. - The Norwich University men's ice hockey team kicks off the second half of its 2008-09 schedule this weekend (Jan. 2-3) when the Cadets host the 10th annual Times Argus Invitational at Kreitzberg Arena.

This year's tournament features four very talented teams. Two of the squads are ranked among the nation's Top 15 in No. 12 Norwich and No. 5 Elmira. The other two schools, Neumann and Gustavus Adolphus, are just outside the rankings and are receiving votes in the latest USCHO.com poll.

The event begins on Friday, Jan. 2, with Elmira taking on Gustavus Adolphus at 4 p.m. Then, at 7 p.m., Norwich will face Neumann in the other semifinal. There will be two games on Saturday, Jan. 3, with the consolation game set for 4 p.m., and the championship match slated for 7 p.m.

If you are unable to make it out to Kreitzberg Arena for this weekend's action, live videostreamed broadcasts of each of the four games will be available on CadetsVision via B2 Networks.
