The Butler Bulldogs come into the 2019-2020 season entering the next chapter of the team. With Chad O’Connell’s graduation, there are no longer any founding members of the original team. With only one graduating player, the team welcomes the largest incoming freshmen class it has ever seen hopes the full roster will help improve the on-ice result.
The Bulldogs will play against some new first time opponents this year, starting on their opening night against the Bradley University Braves. They will travel to a new team, IU Northwest, before hosting Schoolcraft at home before Thanksgiving Break. The team will close out the first semester by traveling down to Nashville for two games against Middle Tennessee State University. All new opponents should hopefully equal more success as the young team is able to get their feet under them before playing perennial champs Indiana.
