BOSTON, MA – The City of Boston, Hockey East Association, and Fenway Sports Management (FSM), today announced the return of outdoor competitive hockey to Fenway Park, with Frozen Fenway 2017, a two week series of hockey and ice skating events taking place at Fenway Park from January 4-16, 2017. Frozen Fenway will feature two marquee Hockey East men’s college hockey doubleheaders, along with additional college and high school hockey games and a free public skating day for City of Boston residents.
 
“Outdoor hockey is quickly becoming a staple on Boston’s winter sports calendar and we look forward to joining with Hockey East and the City of Boston to build on that tradition by bringing some of the most accomplished and talented collegiate teams in the country to compete on the ice at Fenway Park,” said Boston Red Sox President Sam Kennedy.
 
The two Hockey East doubleheaders featuring eight of the premier college hockey programs in New England are scheduled to take place on January 7 and 14. Game times to be announced at a later date:

“Hockey East and our schools could not be more excited to take the ice once again at Fenway Park,” said Hockey East commissioner Joe Bertagna. “Once Frozen Fenway 2017 is complete all twelve Hockey East schools will have played an outdoor game at Fenway Park, creating once-in-a-lifetime memories for the players, students, alumni and fans.”
 
The Frozen Fenway 2017 matchups will feature three recent Frozen Four participants (BC, BU and Providence, which won the 2015 Frozen Four Championship), the past two Beanpot winners (BC and BU), the past two Hockey East regular season champs (BC and Providence in 2016; BU in 2015) and the past two Hockey East tournament champions (Northeastern in 2016; BU in 2015).
