New Hampshire Wildcats Hockey TicketsThe University of New Hampshire has a long tradition of intercollegiate hockey that dates back almost 100 years, fielding a team at a match in Lewiston, Maine, back in January of 1925. The UNH team didn't have a home game until the following year, in 1926. Throughout the years, UNH has been known for solid fundamentals at both ends of the ice. The Wildcats have put up big scores but also plenty of shut-outs over the years. No game tells this story as well as their 13-0 win against Amherst College back in the 1960s. These days, UNH plays in the NCAA’s competitive Hockey East conference. This conference features competitive opponents like Providence, Boston College and UMass. In 2018-19, under the leadership of head coach Mike Souza, the Wildcats posted their best winning percentage in years. The current Wildcats team features standout players like Angus Crookshank, an Ottawa Senators draft pick.
