WATCH: Oilers 2020 first-round pick Dylan Holloway buries his first goal of the NCAA season

NCAA hockey is back.

After the 2020 Frozen Four was cancelled back in April and the 2020-21 season got delayed both due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the league finally got up and rolling this weekend. The marquee game on Friday night to kick off the season featured the Wisconsin Badgers and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.

Holloway will certainly be an exciting prospect to follow this season. While he didn’t light the world on fire offensively as a freshman, Holloway was one of the youngest players in the NCAA last season, so this year he’ll be able to take on a much bigger role on Wisconsin’s roster.
