Notre Dame, Ind. – The Notre Dame hockey team will make its first-ever appearance in the new Compton Family Ice Arena on Friday, Oct. 21 when the Irish play host to the Rensselaer (RPI) Engineers in a 7:35 p.m. contest. The site for the game has been listed as TBA since the schedule was announced in June due to the extremely aggressive construction schedule necessary to have the building ready for use by mid-October.
