TEMPE, Ariz. — Arizona State hockey officially released the 2024-2025 schedule today.  This upcoming season will be the first for the Sun Devils in a conference, the NCHC. Previously, ASU competed as an independent ever since they joined D1 hockey nearly 10 years ago.

After last season, ASU just missed out on a tournament appearance after a string of losses late in the season. Head coach Greg Powers and his squad could have potentially made the tournament with a few losses but one thing was holding them back: strength of schedule.

ASU had one of the toughest schedules in the country in the months of October-December, but from January through March, they had one of the weakest.

The main reason was that so many of the nation’s top teams had begun conference play and could no longer play out of conference. Now, ASU has joined the NCHC and it has elevated their strength of schedule to a whole new level.
