The Union Dutchmen ice hockey team is a National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I men's college ice hockey program that represents Union College. The Dutchmen are a member of ECAC Hockey. They play at the Frank L. Messa Rink at Achilles Center in Schenectady, New York.[2] The Dutchmen won the 2014 NCAA Division I Men's Ice Hockey Tournament by defeating the Minnesota Golden Gophers 7-4.

Program history

The hockey team was founded in 1904 making it the 7th oldest college program playing in NCAA Division I [3] and provides the school with a long and colorful history in the sport. Men at Union have played hockey in four distinct periods: club hockey from 1904-1911, varsity hockey from 1919-1949 (from 1943-1948 there was a hiatus from play due to WW II), NCAA Division III hockey from 1975-1990 and NCAA Division I hockey from 1991–present.

Early history 1904–1911

Union's first game, played on February 3, 1904, was a victory over the Union Classical Institute. Three other games were played that inaugural season including a 1-4 loss to rival Rensselaer. Lacking a rink of its own during that inaugural season, all games were played on the opponent's home ice. The first attempt at creating an on-campus outdoor rink was made by students in 1905 when a plow and scaper was hired to form a level area with earthen banks near what is now Memorial Chapel. The club team's record in known games during those early years was 6-7-1. No collegiate games were played in the 1910 or 1911 seasons because Union's players couldn't afford the costs of travel and opponent game guarantee fees. The club team subsequently disbanded bringing a close to the earliest era of hockey at Union.
