Northeastern Huskies Hockey TicketsThe Northeastern Huskies hockey program dates back to the 1929-1930 season. The Huskies have had the same home ice throughout the program's history. Huskies have played in the Hockey East division of NCAA Division I since the 1984-85 season. In Hockey East, they're matched up against nearby schools like Boston College, Boston University and Providence College frequently. In recent years, Northeastern has been rebuilding as one of the strongest hockey programs in the division. Since 2015-16, the Northeastern Huskies have posted three 20-plus-win seasons. They've appeared in the NCAA tournament three times in that period. Huskies head coach Jim Madigan isn't just posting wins, he's also having great success in player development. He had coached a Hobey Baker winner in Adam Gaudette , and players like goaltender Cayden Primeau have made it to the NHL. The current Huskies team includes high-scoring players like Aidan McDonough and Tyler Madden. Get your tickets at StubHub to see the Northeastern Huskies play.
