The Penn State Nittany Lion hockey team will make history by playing its first weekend at the intercollegiate level against American International at 7:05 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 13 at Wilkes-Barre's Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza.
In 2012-13, the Nittany Lions will compete as an independent and play 23 games against NCAA Division I opponents from all five conferences – Atlantic Hockey, CCHA, ECAC Hockey, Hockey East and WCHA – and fellow independent Alabama Huntsville.
Penn State will also face off against three NCAA Division III foes while playing eight exhibition games.
The Penn State Wilkes-Barre Alumni Constituent Society is currently taking game ticket reservations.
Tickets are available for $10 each.
