Sacred Heart announced Tuesday that its men’s hockey team’s opening weekend has been postponed “due to a small number of COVID-19 cases and subsequent contact tracing on the team,” and two games next weekend have been postponed as well.

The Pioneers were to visit American International on Saturday and Quinnipiac on Tuesday, then play a home-and-home with Army, Nov. 27-28. The Black Knights had their first two games postponed under similar circumstances.

AIC announced that it will take the Nov. 24 date at Quinnipiac in Sacred Heart’s place.

No makeup dates have been announced. Sacred Heart’s next scheduled game is Dec. 1 at AIC.
