The Army hockey team will play the Russian Junior National Team for the second time in three years.

Head coach Brian Riley and the Black Knights will host the Russian Junior National Team at Tate Rink on Thursday, Dec. 27, for a 7:05 p.m. face-off.

"Any time you get the opportunity to play against a great team you want to try and take advantage of that," said Riley, who begins his ninth season as Army’s head coach. "Fans will get the chance to see a host of players with NHL aspirations and we get a chance to play a game before resuming our regular season. We had a great turnout for this game two years ago and we are looking forward to another opportunity to playing in front of our great, loyal fans."

Army and the Russian Junior National Team played in front of a standing-room only crowd of 2,602 on Dec. 28, 2010.

During the 2012-13 season, Army will play 17 games at Tate Rink with home dates against Penn State and Royal Military College as well as Atlantic Hockey Association opponents Sacred Heart, American International, Niagara, Robert Morris, RIT and Connecticut.

Army will begin its season at the Icebreaker Tournament Oct. 12 against Nebraska-Omaha. Maine and Notre Dame will play in the first game of the tournament with the consolation and championship contests set for the next day.

The first home game of the season is a league contest against Sacred Heart, the start of a home-and-home series Oct. 19 and 20.

Penn State, in its first year as an NCAA program and playing as an independent before joining the newly formed Big Ten Conference next year, will visit Tate Rink on Friday, Oct. 26, before Army goes to Holy Cross the next day.

Season tickets will go on sale Monday, July 16, and can be purchased at, by phone at 1-877-TIX-ARMY on in person at the Army Ticket Office.
