Hockey East teams promote Frozen Fenway 2017

  Frozen Fenway 2017 will feature eight Hockey East teams over two weekends in January.

It may only be the dog days of hot and humid August, but some of the NCAA's biggest ice hockey programs were present at Fenway Park on Thursday night, as representatives from eight Hockey East programs took part in a pregame ceremony to promote Frozen Fenway 2017.

Frozen Fenway will be a two-part doubleheader of Hockey East action held outdoors in Fenway Park, starting with Boston University vs. UMass and Boston College vs. Providence on Jan. 7 and Maine vs. UConn and New Hampshire vs. Northeastern on Jan. 14.
