Western Michigan is going to Vegas, baby.
The Broncos are one of four teams slated to compete in the 2019 Ice Vegas Invitational, played at the home of the NHL’s Las Vegas Golden Knights on Jan. 4-5.
Andy Murray’s club will take on UConn at 5 p.m. PT on Friday, Jan. 4. The winner of that game will play the winner of Air Force vs. St. Lawrence in the title game the following day (there will also be a consolation game).
“We are thrilled with this lineup in year two of staging this tournament,” said Brooks Downing, president of bd Global, the organization hosting the event. “There’s so much interest in Las Vegas and T-Mobile Arena from the college hockey community and that’s largely due in part to the massive success of the Golden Knights. Hockey fans here in the Valley will be able to see some of the very best talent in the sport, future professional stars.”
