Due to a COVID-19 outbreak within the program in November, UNH has played in just one of the first five series (two games out of 10) on its schedule to start the 2020-21 season. In the Wildcats only two games played this season, it earned three of a possible four points against Maine and holds a 1-0-1 record on the campaign.

Hockey East also canceled games this week between UMass and UMass Lowell.

It remains to be seen when UNH, or any other Hockey East school that has experienced postponements due to COVID-19, will make up the games on its schedule.

The Wildcats are not scheduled to play again until January 1-2 in a home-and-home series with UConn before taking a two-week hiatus and playing UConn once again January 15-16 in another home-and-home set.
