Rain Can’t Dampen Hockey Campout Spirit

Torrential rains hit the Denver campus Friday night, but it did not wash away the enthusiasm students have for DU’s annual hockey campout.  On the eve of Denver hockey’s first exhibition against UNLV (6:00 pm MT, Magness Arena), Denver Hockey put on a final Friday night scrimmage for the campers before the students settled in for a soggy evening of camping. Early Saturday morning events featured student raffles and a visit from defending national championship head coach David Carle with donuts and coffee, of course.

Students were greeted by blue skies Saturday morning.

The enthusiasm for Denver hockey is at a fever pitch with nearly every poll showing the defending champions among the nation’s elite programs. You can read about DU’s team here. For an excellent preview of the overall NCHC and every collegiate hockey conference follow Brad Schlossman below:
