Red Hot Hockey, the wildly successful early season outing between long-time college hockey rivals Boston University and Cornell, returns to light up Madison Square Garden on Thanksgiving Weekend 2017. Red Hot Hockey has quickly become THE hotly anticipated biennial event for both schools’ hockey-mad fan bases, drawing sold out crowds to “The World’s Most Famous Arena”!
Both schools are perennial college hockey powerhouses. Boston University has won the national championship five times (1971, 1972, 1978, 1995 and 2009), while Cornell has claimed the title twice (1967, 1970). Combined, the two schools have produced over 100 NHL players, including the likes of former Rangers captain Chris Drury, Keith Tkachuk and Jack Eichel (Boston University), as well as Douglas Murray, Ken Dryden and Joe Nieuwendyk (Cornell).
