California, PA- Training Camp is set to open next week which means the regular season is just around the corner.  As the 2015-16 season kicks off the Vulcans will be looking to repeat as College Hockey East Champions and earn yet another ACHA National Tournament bid.  Last season the Vulcans finished 25-4-1 while falling just short of reaching the ACHA Semi-Finals.

The Vulcans will have many new faces on the ice this upcoming season as they look to replace a number of key contributors including ACHA Atlantic Region Player of the Year Dan Bailey, Boyd Zinger and John Miller among others.  There will also be some new faces in the College Hockey East this season with West Virginia University joining the league while Penn State Altoona and St. Vincent joined the College Hockey East Open Division.

It wont take long to see newcomer West Virginia as the Vulcans will travel there on October 3rd for an afternoon contest following their season opener on Oct 2nd when they host Fredonia State University.   The early season schedule will be highlighted by October matchups against Neumann University and Robert Morris University at home then traveling to face the University of Pitt-Johnstown.

When the calendar turns to November the Vulcans will again take place in the The Classic Tournament before ending their fall semester at home against Xavier University on December 4th.

New this season to the Vulcans schedule is the University of Pitt-Johnstown Tournament where the Vulcans will face Farmingdale State, Xavier and Rowan University.  Rounding out the remainder of the regular season the Vulcans will face four College Hockey East opponents along with a second matchup at Neumann and the highly awaited rematch against Bryn Athyn College on January 30th on the road.

Postseason play is slated to get underway on February 19th for the ACHA Regional Tournament unless the Vulcans secure the first or second seed in the Atlantic.  The annual College Hockey East playoffs will run from February 26th – 28th.

Finally the most anticipated section of the schedule, the ACHA National Tournament, which will be from March 8th – March 12th.  This year’s tournament will be hosted in Grand Rapids, MI.  Nationals were last held in Michigan back in 2011 when Holland hosted the weeklong event.  That season saw the Vulcans earn a spot in the Semi-Finals before falling to the eventual National Champion College of the Canyons.
