SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Tonight, the Weber State hockey team will play its first game of the season and on April 2 they will play their second and last game of the season.

That’s right, the Wildcats’ 2021 season will be two games long and both games will be road games against Utah State.

“We’re just happy to be on the ice again,” Wildcats head coach Kiyoshi Ryujin told KSL Sports, “Thinking we weren’t going to have a season, most of our new players put off coming to school until the fall, but we have a number of players that still live here and are taking full-time classes.”

The ACHA is hosting its National Championships starting on April 16 in Minot North Dakota. Some of the teams competing in the tournament have played as few as three games.

The league is hampered because each county has different guidelines on dealing with COVID-19. Some teams were able to get back to almost a normal practice and game schedule. Several teams are still not allowed to play at all.

“The two games against Utah State will probably be it.” Ryujin continued, “Most schools have not cleared their teams to return to play, so that makes scheduling difficult.”

Utah State and Weber State have a heated and fun rivalry that dates back to the beginning of club college hockey here in Utah. Utah State managed to get in a couple games earlier this year against BYU.

Weber State was allowed to start practicing last week.
