beanpotOne of the most celebrated college hockey events in New England is almost here. The 2014 Beanpot Championship will display the rivalry and competitive nature between four of Boston's top colleges.

"It has become Boston's 'social event of winter season.' The first two Monday nights of February in Boston are reserved for the Beanpot, an annual hockey tournament that features Boston College, Boston University, Harvard and Northeastern. It all started on Dec. 26, 1952 at the old Boston Arena. The next year the Beanpot moved to the Garden, where it has been played ever since and become the official battle for Boston's hockey bragging rights."

Tickes for this event are still available here thorough Ticketmaster. Please click here for further information on the Beanpot Tournament and this year's schedule.

365 things to do in boston, college hockey, BC, BU

As we approach the depths of winter, as the NHL slips deeper into its frozen labor dispute, and as the sports options start to dwindle down, I highly suggest going to see a college hockey game in our fair city. Boston is rich in tradition and history as far as hockey goes, and this is perhaps no more visible than at some of our Universities. Boston College, Boston University, Harvard and Northeastern are all within the city limits, and offer some exciting and competitive Divi sion 1 College hockey (both men's and women's). BC and BU have won 4 of the past 5 Men's National Titles (3 for my alma mater BC of course!!!). The 2 powerhouse schools had 32 former players suit up in NHL last year. 

Factor in UMASS-Amherst, UMASS-Lowell, Merrimack, UNH, UVM, and Maine, and the Northeast is to College Hockey what the SEC is to College Football. Not to mention, college hockey is a great value, as most tickets are around $10....Some upcoming games are:

 

Dec 10th:

UMASS Lowell at Harvard at 7pm

Dec 29th: 

Northeastern at Harvard at 7pm 

Jan 4th:

Yale at BC at Conte Foum at 7pm

RPI at BU at Aggannis Arena at 7pm
