The BobcatsHockeyBlog has pieced together the 2017-2018 Quinnipiac University men's ice hockey schedule through the composite ECAC schedule release, non conference opponents releasing their schedule, leaks from other college programs and sources in the college hockey game.

Rand Pecknold's squad has a difficult six game stretch to open the season with five Hockey East teams including perennial powers Boston College and Boston University in its opening weekend. Some of the other first half season highlights include the Bobcats opening ECAC play with Cornell on November 3rd at the TD Bank Sports Center. The Battle of Whitney takes place on Saturday November 18th which is the earliest Yale home game since the season after the program reached its first Frozen Four back in 2013. Over Thanksgiving break the Bobcats will see newly minted first round draft pick Cale Makar and his UMass Minuteman in an I-91 series with each team having a home game. They wrap up the first semester with four home games in a row capping it with a non league pair against Maine.

The second half of the season begins with eight straight games away from Hamden highlighted with a trip to the desert for a pair of games with Arizona State. Quinnipiac will head to Ingalls Rink on Friday February 9th to face Yale.
