UConn will play host to Alabama Huntsville in the 2016-17 home opener, facing the Chargers in a two-game series on October 7th and 8th. The Huskies opened last season on the road in Huntsville, splitting the two-game set with UAH. UConn is 3-9-0 all-time against the Chargers, who play WCHA. This will be the Chargers second trip to Connecticut in the series history, the last coming in the 1998 UConn Hockey Classic.
The Huskies will host three other non-conference games at home this season, facing old Atlantic Hockey rival American International on October 21st and in-state rivals Sacred Heart on November 26th and Yale University on January 7th.
UConn has not faced AIC since leaving Atlantic Hockey after the 2013-14 season. The Huskies are 57-37-11 all-time versus the Yellow Jackets. UConn holds a slim 29-28-5 lead in the all-time series with SHU with the Pioneers having won the last three meetings and four of the last five. UConn has never beaten state rival Yale in their 11 previous meetings (0-11-0) and this will be just the second time the Huskies have hosted the Bulldogs on their home ice, the last time coming in 2008.
The 2016-17 season marks the third season of play in Hockey East for UConn and the Huskies have nine league match-ups scheduled for the XL Center ice. The home league schedule gets underway on November 18th against Boston University. The Huskies will host Boston College on November 22nd, UMass Lowell on December 3rd and UMass on December 9th to close out the fall semester.
UConn returns to the XL Center on January 27th to take on the Vermont Catamounts and will host four conference games during February. The Merrimack Warriors come to Hartford on February 4th followed by Providence College on February 8th.
