Rochester Tigers Hockey Schedule
Each year as the college hockey season gets underway there is no better place
to be than inside of the Gene Polisseni Center, home of the Rochester Institute of Technology Tigers. The ice hockey team
is the only team at the university to compete in Division I athletics and as such is arguably the school's most popular sport.
The team competes in the Atlantic Hockey Association where it competes primarily against schools from the northeast. The Tigers
really made a name for themselves in 2010 when they advanced to the Frozen Four and have since been one of the top teams in
their conference. This season the Tigers will have their work cut out for them during conference play but should have enough
talent to make it back to the NCAA Tournament and possibly have yet another deep run.
October 4th marks the start of
the 2014 college hockey season at the Gene Polisseni Center when the Rochester Tigers take on the Brock Badgers. The Tigers
have home games against the St. Lawrence Saints and the Clarkson Golden Knights before a big home series against one of their
biggest AHA rivals the Holy Cross Crusaders. There are plenty of other huge home series at the Geno Polisseni Center throughout
the year including match ups against the Sacred Heart Pioneers, the Niagara Purple Eagles, the American International College
Yellow Jackets, the Army Black Knights, the Robert Morris Colonials, and the Mercyhurst Lakers. There are plenty of opportunities
to head out to the Gene Polisseni Center and show the Rochester Tigers some support, just pick out the games you can catch
and get your tickets right here at StubHub.
In the 2014-2015 season the Rochester Tigers will
be looking to make a return to the AHA championship game for the first time in two years. Prior to 2013 the Tigers had made
three straight trips to the title game, winning their only conference tournament championship in the AHA in 2010. The returning
Tigers players certainly have a chip on their shoulder entering the season and are as hungry as ever to prove that they are
the team to beat in the AHA. It will certainly not be an easy task as the AHA is generally one of the most competitive conferences
in all of college hockey. The 2014 season should once again be filled with excitement both for the Rochester Tigers and their
fans and you will want to be in the Gene Polisseni Center right from the start.
fans in general are some of the most passionate sports fans around, but nothing quite matches the fanaticism surrounding college
hockey and Rochester Tigers hockey fans are some of the most dedicated and vociferous fans in the entire NCAA. On game day
at the Gene Polisseni Center, the fans file in and take their seats when the cheering and chanting begins. As the clock winds
down closer and closer to the dropping of the puck the crowd works itself into a frenzy. Finally both teams are ready for
face off and the excitement really begins. Thunderous, bone rattling hits, incredible displays of speed and agility, powerful
slapshots, and tremendous saves set the arena on fire for the following three periods of world class college hockey. By the
time the final buzzer sounds your voice is hoarse and your palms are stinging from clapping and giving high fives, and you
will already be planning a return trip.
