First reported by Mike Anthony of the Hartford Courant the #icebus will play a four game series with the Ohio State Buckeyes. The first two games being played in Ohio this upcoming season then the return games being played in Connecticut for the 17-18 season. While Ohio State may not be the best team in the BIG10 it does offer the Huskies a quality non conference game. This can boost recruiting out west and also bring in decent crowds. While usually playing top 20 teams all year in Hockey East Ohio State brings a more equal team talent wise that UConn will be able to keep up with.
