Western Michigan Broncos Hockey Schedule

Kalamazoo, Michigan is the place to be each year when the college hockey season gets underway and the Western Michigan Broncos take to the ice in their quest for a National Collegiate Hockey Conference title. Lawson Ice Arena, the Broncos' home, really comes to life during home games and the excitement in the air during a big game is palpable. Possessing one of the best home ice advantages in all of college hockey, the Western Michigan Broncos are especially tough beat at home. NCAA hockey is of huge importance in Kalamazoo and tickets to see the Broncos play at Lawson Ice Arena always sell out quickly. Get your tickets from StubHub as soon as possible to head out to show the Western Michigan Broncos your support.

The Western Michigan Broncos kick off their regular season home schedule on October 17th with the first of two games against the Nebraska Omaha Mavericks. There is an abundance of great games at Lawson Ice Arena this year including match ups against the Alaska Nanooks, the St. Cloud State Huskies, the Colorado College Tigers, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, the Miami Ohio Redhawks, the University of North Dakota, and the Minnesota Duluth Bulldogs. On November 28th the Broncos will take part in the Shillelagh Tournament at Compton Family Ice Arena in Notre Dame, Indiana where they will take on Ohio State. Another exciting tournament the Broncos will be a part of is the Hockey City Classic which will be held at Soldier Field in Chicago on February 7th. There are several chances to come out to Lawson Ice Arena to catch the Western Michigan Broncos in action during the 2014-2015 season.


The Team

Western Michigan University has had a hockey program for over 40 years, dating all the way back to the 1973 season. The school had played in the CCHA every year up through the 2012-2013 season when the conference disbanded and the Broncos joined the newly formed NCHC. During their first year playing the NCHC Western Michigan went 15-7-6 in conference play, finishing 3rd but missed out on the NCAA Tournament. Entering their second season in the NCHC and their third under head coach Andy Murray the Broncos appear poised for a return to the Tournament as they climb the NCHC standings. This could well be a banner year for Western Michigan and all die hard fans will want to be there right from the start during this exciting new chapter of Broncos hockey.


Western Michigan Broncos Hockey Conference

The Broncos are a part of the recently formed National Collegiate Hockey Conference. The NCHC played its first season of collegiate hockey last season after teams from the CCHA and the WCHA came together to create a new conference after their previous conferences lost teams to the newly formed Big Ten hockey conference. The conference is primarily made up of schools from the Midwest and its members include the Denver Pioneers, the St. Cloud Huskies, Colorado College, University of Minnesota – Duluth, Miami University, University of North Dakota, and Western Michigan University. Prior to joining the NCHC the Broncos were members of the Central Collegiate Hockey Association, or CCHA, which was one of the most storied conferences in the entire NCAA. The CCHA had some of the best rivalries in all of college hockey before it was dissolved in 2013 and the teams who continue to play in the NCHC are sure to continue their excellence and help make the NCHC one of the best conferences in all of college hockey.


The Experience

Hockey fans in general are some of the most passionate sports fans around, but nothing quite matches the fanaticism surrounding college hockey and Western Michigan Broncos fans are some of the most dedicated and vociferous fans in the entire NCAA. On game day at the Lawson Ice Arena, 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.


Trivia

The Broncos began playing intercollegiate hockey in 1973 but it was not until 1986 when they first won a CCHA conference title and made their first trip to the NCAA Tournament. Over the years Western Michigan has made it to the NCAA Tournament five times, most recently in 2012, but have yet to advance past the first round.
