(NEWS CENTER) - Red Gendron, University of Maine Men's Hockey head coach said in an interview Thursday that the Black Bears and the University of New Hampshire Wildcats will play a unique home and home series starting in the 2014-2015 season. Gendron said "We are going to play one game down here in the (Cumberland County) Civic Center and another one at the Verizon Center in Manchester (Hew Hampshire)." Both teams usually play games against each other on their respective campuses.
The University of Maine announced earlier this year that the Cumberland County Civic Center in Portland will be host to the 2015 NCAA Hockey Ice Breaker tournament. The recent renovation of the Civic Center has brought better opportunities to host such events.
Gendron also discussed recruiting efforts and the importance of Southern Maine in the growth of the Maine Black Bears Hockey program.
