Fairfield, CT- The Club 'A' Ice Hockey team clinched a spot in the Division 2 American Collegiate Hockey Association (ACHA) this past week. Accompanying SHU in the 2019 playoff bracket are UNH, RPI, Siena College, Marist College, and Army. The teams will be traveling down to Montclair, NJ where Montclair State University will be hosting this year’s tournament. The Pioneers are set to play next Friday, February 22nd, at 9:10pm against Marist College. This is the second game of the night, with the first being Siena College vs. Army at 6:30pm.
