Robert Morris caught the wave of outdoor hockey games.
The Colonials will face off against Bowling Green on Jan. 3, 2015, at Fifth Third Field, home of the Class AAA Toledo Mud Hens in Toledo, Ohio.
The event will headline the Toledo Walleye’s 10-day Winterfest.
By the end of the 2013-14 season, there will have been 26 college hockey games played outdoors. This will be the first outdoor game for either program and will be the second in Ohio.
“We are very excited to play in this special event,” Robert Morris coach Derek Schooley said. “This will be a game that will take our student-athletes back to their childhood days and a game they will remember for the rest of their lives.”
