While the final weeks of fall quarter bring with it final exams, projects, and papers, it also marks the beginning of DU Hockey season! Our DU Pioneers hockey team, fresh off capturing their eighth national championship in 2016, are eyeing another title run in 2017. The Pios lost Hobey Baker Award Winner Will Butcher from the 2016 team (he is currently off to a hot start for the New Jersey Devils of the NHL). However, much of the core of the national title team remains, making DU an excellent contender and favorite for repeating as National Champions. Hockey season always brings a lot of energy to campus as students camp out for tickets and pack Magness Arena for homes games. Prolific scorers like sophomore Henrik Borgstom (Heslinki, Finland) and junior Troy Terry (Highlands Ranch, Colorado) give fans plenty to cheer about. If you are planning your visit to campus, be sure to check the hockey schedule to see if the reigning national champions are in town!
