Did We Know This About The Big Chill?

I was bumbling around the web and came across the following release from Salisbury Prep:

Crimson Knight fans--mark your calendars! The Salisbury School Varsity Hockey Team will travel to Ann Arbor, Michigan, to take on Kent School in an outdoor game played in historic Michigan Stadium. This game will take place on Friday, December 10, 2010 at 10:00 a.m. No pre-purchased tickets are necessary for the Salisbury vs. Kent game.

The following day, Saturday, December 11 at 3:00 p.m., the University of Michigan Hockey Team will play Michigan State in front of a potential record-breaking crowd of 110,000 fans. (Please note that tickets for varsity hockey team members and their parents have already been reserved.)

I'm not sure if this is news or not. That's the first I've heard of it, though. It's relevant to Michigan fans because Kent is coached by former Wolverine Matt Herr. Salisbury is the school that gave us "Other". I'll refrain from the obvious "Hide your credit cards, hide your wives" joke.

I wonder if there are any players that we might be, ya know, recruiting that weekend. That'd have to be the most impressive recruiting visit of all time.

I heard from a friend of mine that the Eastern Michigan University club team will be playing at Michigan Stadium that weekend as well.

And also that Adrian College will be playing Colgate at the Big House on Dec. 4th.

Adrian's facing Concordia, not Colgate.

And 2012 recruit Boo Nieves plays for the Kent School.

Part of this could be done to "season the ice", which is why public skating events are also being held. I think something similar was done at Camp Randall last season.

As well as college games at Fenway last year, too. I think it's a good idea. I'm stoked, though. When are tickets being mailed out?

Has there been any word about when the pubic skating is going to occur? trying to figure out how many days to take off work to go...

@Craig: Hopefully we do as good of a job of seasoning the visiting goalie's crease as Wisco did for Hogan last year! :-)

@WIE: Haven't heard anything about that yet. I know the media game is Thursday, but that's about it. Should be more info coming next week.
