Brown University men's ice hockey coach, Roger Grillo, who will enter his seventh season behind the bench, had announced the Bears' 2003-2004 schedule. The schedule is highlighted by 13 home games at Brown's Meehan Auditorium and a trip to Durham, NH to face 2003 NCAA Frozen Four Runner-up New Hampshire. In addition, Brown will also travel to North Dakota to take part in the Subway Holiday Classic for the second straight year.
The Bears will play their yearly home and away series with the 11 other ECAC schools, and non-league games against Wayne State (in North Dakota), either Findlay or North Dakota, and UMass-Lowell on the road, while hosting Connecticut and Merrimack. The 18th annual Mayor's Cup game between the Providence College Friars and Brown Bears will be played on November 25 at Providence's Schneider Arena, rounding out the non-leauge contests.
Brown finished last year with a 16-14-5 record, and posted a winning season for the first time since 1995 when Bruno finished with a 15-12-5 ledger. 20 letterwinners return to this year's squad, Brown's 79th season of collegiate ice hockey.
