The 2009-10 Michigan State hockey schedule has been released. The Spartans face Western Ontario in their first exhibition game on October 5th and the first regular season home games are against Clarkson on October 9th and 10th. On October 30th, MSU plays Western Michigan in their first home CCHA game.
According to Coach Comley, the Spartans seem to have a more favorable schedule this year. They do have a tough stretch starting out in the second weekend with two games at Maine, and then they travel to Oxford to play Miami in the first CCHA weekend. The good news is that they are not on the road for any long stretches, and will get to face Big Ten schools and Notre Dame in eight games. I will give further analysis on the schedule as the season closes in. Let me know what you think about this year's schedule in the comment section.
