COLORADO SPRINGS — On Thursday, the National Collegiate Hockey Conference announced make-up date for the Gold Pan Trophy series between Colorado College & Denver.

Per the release, the postponed series between CC and DU from earlier in January has been rescheduled for Jan. 29-30 in Colorado Springs. The final series of the regular season between the Gold Pan rivals also had its dates and location adjusted.

The Tigers and Pioneers, who did meet on Jan. 1-2, were also slated to square off in a home-and-home series on Jan. 8-9, however that series was postponed. That series will no longer be home-and-home and will now take place on Friday, Jan. 29 and Saturday, Jan. 30, with both games occurring at the Broadmoor World Arena. Friday's game will start at 4:07 p.m. MT, with Saturday's game a 7:07 p.m. MT puck drop.

With both upcoming games between CC and DU taking place in Colorado Springs, the third and final series of the regular season between the in-state foes will now shift to Magness Arena in Denver on Friday, Feb. 26 and Saturday, Feb. 27. Like the Jan. 29-30 series, Friday will be a 4:07 p.m. MT start and Saturday at 7:07 p.m. MT. The final series between Colorado College and Denver was originally split up over two weekends, but the Feb. 26-27 series replaces the Feb. 27 game scheduled at Colorado College and the March 6 game that was scheduled at Denver.

The Tigers and Pioneers are slated to meet six times in the regular season, with the teams splitting their first series. Colorado College won the opener on home ice on Jan. 1, 4-3, while Denver won the next night at Magness Arena, 6-1.
