Penn State Men’s Hockey Hall of Fame game still running, full capacity planned
After having been postponed one year due to the coronavirus pandemic, the 2021 American Hockey Hall of Fame game between Penn State and North Dakota is expected to be held at full capacity this fall.
The game will take place on Saturday, October 30, 2021 at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee.
The University of North Dakota Athletics Department announced that the game was still on schedule after Metro’s Department of Public Health recently announced that all restrictions relating to COVID-19, including the use of face masks, had been lifted in Nashville. This should allow Bridgestone Arena to welcome around 17,500 fans.
âI couldn’t be happier to confirm our Nashville game next season,â said UND hockey coach Brad Berry. âThe game to Nashville is going to be a great return to normal for all of us.â
The game should be historic for Guy Gadowsky’s schedule as the Nittany Lions’ first encounter with Fighting Hawks. North Dakota finished last season in first place in the latest USCHO poll while being eliminated in the second round of the 2021 NCAA men’s ice hockey tournament.
Fans who purchased tickets for the 2020 event in Nashville will have their tickets carried over to the 2021 game. Fans with tickets do not need to act, as both mobile and physical tickets will be valid for the game. A limited number of tickets are still available for purchase here.
