During the 2015-2016 season, the UMass Boston men’s hockey team became the first team in school history to reach the NCAA Division III semifinals, taking the ice at the historic Herb Brooks Arena in Lake Placid as part of the Frozen Four. The last time the Beacons took to the field at Fenway, on January 7, 2014, they beat Salem State University 4-2. Watch videos and check out photos here.

“Only our seniors were here for the last Frozen Fenway game. Now, a new set of students will get to experience this very special opportunity – to play in such a prestigious and historic setting,” said UMass Boston Chancellor J. Keith Motley. “Three years ago we had a great turnout of students and alumni, and we’re hoping even more come out to cheer on the Beacons this time around.”
