Penn State men’s hockey coach Guy Gadowsky would love to see fans pack Beaver Stadium for something besides football.


Gadowsky said Penn State’s football stadium would be an ideal place to hold the NHL Winter Classic and pit cross-state rivals like the Penguins and Flyers against one another.


“I think it would be fantastic,” Gadowsky said Thursday.


The central location of Penn State to Pittsburgh and Philadelphia makes Beaver Stadium an attractive location, he said.


Gadowsky has more immediate concerns, however, as he is ushering Penn State hockey into major-college competition. The Nittany Lions will play 20 Big Ten games this season, and they will also skate in a new area. The Pegula Ice Center is scheduled to open in September, and Penn State will christen the new building with an Oct. 11 game against Army.


Penn State played a limited Big Ten conference schedule last season and went a respectable 13-14. It upset perennial powerhouses Michigan State, Ohio State and Wisconsin.
