Hockey is returning to Fenway Park to help usher in the old ballpark's 100th year of existence.

It was announced on Friday that Hockey East will return to the oldest park in baseball on Jan. 7, 2012 as part of Hockey Day in Boston. UMass, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine will all take part in the event, with UMass taking on UVM at 4 p.m. and UNH and Maine squaring off at 7:30 p.m.

Coincidentally, both of those games will follow a Stanley Cup Final rematch between the Bruins and Canucks that will take place at TD Garden at 1 p.m. All three of the games will be broadcasted on NESN.
