The UConn men's hockey team and the Quinnipiac women's hockey team will both play games at Fenway Park in Boston as part of the 2023 Frozen Fenway event.

BOSTON — Fenway Park is used to home runs and fans singing along to "Sweet Caroline," but in 2023, the baseball diamond will again become a hockey rink.

The National Hockey League announced that Fenway Park, home to the Boston Red Sox, would be the host of the 2023 NHL Winter Classic, where the hometown Boston Bruins will host the Pittsburgh Penguins on the day after New Year's Day.
