Hockey Closes Out 2021 in Colorado Springs
TEMPE, Ariz. -- After dominating No. 18 Clarkson at home last weekend, Sun Devil Hockey (9-9-0) travels to Colorado Springs to take on Colorado College (3-10-3) in their final games of the calendar year.
They will play two games at Ed Robson Arena in the Friday-Saturday series on December 17-18. Friday's puck drop is slated for 7:30 p.m. MST, and Saturday's puck drops earlier at 6:00 p.m. MST. The games will be viewable via the AT&T Sports Network and on TSN2. Fans can also stream both games for a cost on NCHC.tv.
The Sun Devils improved their impressive record at Oceanside in their sweep of the Golden Knights to cap off the final 2021 homestand. Ben Kraws was electric in the net with 35 saves in game one, not to mention his offense sure helped him out with four goals scored in each game.

Ryan O'Reilly is on a hot streak of his own with 5 points in his last three games. This comes after recording back-to-back games with a goal and an assist against Clarkson.
Colorado College is 2-8-1 in their last 11 games, and their home win against Air Force during that stretch is their sole home win of the season. The Tigers are 1-5-1 at home, whereas the Sun Devils post a 1-5-0 road record.
The two teams have met four times before, but this will be the Sun Devils' first trip to Colorado Springs since 2017 when they were 0-1-1 in the two game series. ASU is 2-0-1 in their last three against the Tigers, and has netted four goals in each game.
This roadie will conclude Sun Devil Hockey's 2021 slate, but hockey in the desert will resume on New Year's Day when Cornell comes to town.
