Briercrest men's hockey looks to start the 2014-15 ACAC strong as they face perennial powerhouse NAIT for the season opening alumni weekend. After sitting at the top of the ACAC standings at the end of the 2013-14 regular season NAIT fell to SAIT in the ACAC Championship. They will once again have a strong team, and it will be a strong test for the Briercrest team to start the season.

This weekend will also serve as the Briercrest Hockey Alumni weekend and there will be several Alumni activities and games throughout the weekend. As part of the Home Opener festivities the Briercrest Student Union will be hosting a Pep Rally at 6:00 pm outside of the Barkman Arena.

Briercrest will host NAIT at the Barkman Arena, Friday, Sept. 26 at 7:00 pm and Saturday, Sept. 27 at 2:00 pm.

For those who can't attend the game, both will be broadcast on
