The “World’s Most Famous Arena” will see the Cornell University men’s hockey team’s most famous rivalry next season. The fourth edition of The Frozen Apple will feature Cornell against Harvard on Saturday, Nov. 24 at Madison Square Garden, Cornell University's Meakem*Smith Director of Athletics and Physical Education Andy Noel announced Friday, April 27th.
“We are very excited to continue the tradition of The Frozen Apple with our rival, Harvard.” said Mike Schafer, the Jay R. Bloom ’77 Head Coach of Men's Hockey at Cornell. “The games at Lynah Rink have historically been unbelievable sporting events. But given the stage, this game will be one that people will talk about for years to come.”
Cornell has been battling with ancient rival Harvard since 1910, and they have matched up 152 times with the Big Red sweeping the two 2017-18 games – including an exhilarating game on Nov. 11 that ended with Alec McCrea’s game-winning, power-play goal with 2.3 seconds left in the third period.
“We are excited to bring one of the most hotly contested rivalries in college hockey to the grandest of stages,” Noel said. “Our alumni, fans and student-athletes will circle this game on their calendars as these programs continue to write new chapters in this historic battle.”
This meeting at Madison Square Garden will be a non-league affair. The teams will still each host their traditional league games at their respective rinks in the 2018-19 season.
