UCSD Ice Hockey is a student-run ice hockey organization competing in the Men’s Division II of the American Collegiate Hockey Association. Join us on our journey as we take to the ice for our inaugural season in the PAC-8 Intercollegiate Hockey Conference, alongside local division rivals San Diego State, UCLA, USC, and Arizona State. The loss of our 2020-21 season, unfortunately, saw seniors and longtime team veterans Dexter Hamilton and Kent Pinz, among other former Tritons, finish their degrees online without the proper send-off. We are excited to showcase a round of new first- and second-year prospects out on the ice.
UCSD is a four-time PCHA champion, winning the title in 2000, 2001, 2003, and 2006. The team has fully transitioned as an affiliate of the PAC-8 after stints in the National Collegiate Hockey Association and West Coast Hockey Conference. The regular season runs through the fall and winter quarters, from early October into late February. Prospective players should email firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about skating with the team. Weekly commitment to the team is expected of all players, which consists of on-ice practice, off-ice team outings, and 1-2 games per weekend.
