    Huskies Blank Canisius 4-0 To Advance To AHA Second Round
    The UConn men's hockey squad blanked Canisius, 4-0, at the Mark Edward Freitas Ice Forum in Storrs to advance to the Atlantic Hockey Association Second Round next weekend. The opponent is still to be determined. UConn swept Canisius 2-0 in the best-of-three series.

    STORRS, Conn. - The University of Connecticut men’s hockey team will play host to Canisius for two Atlantic Hockey Association contests on Friday and Saturday at the Mark Edward Freitas Ice Forum in Storrs. Both games will begin at 7:05 p.m.

    Both games can be heard at WHUS.org, 91.7fm with a live webstream available at UConnhuskies.com.

    Connecticut (4-5-1, 3-4-0 AHA) has won four of the last five games and two straight after sweeping reigning AHA Champion Air Force this past weekend for the first time in program history.

    The Huskies started the season slow at 0-4-1 but have since gone 4-1, outscoring teams 14-10 during the five-game stretch. The lone loss of that period came at Bentley.

    Connecticut has held serve at home this year, sitting at 3-0-1 with victories over Air Force (twice) and Sacred Heart as well as an impressive 2-2 tie against then-No. 8 Union in the home opener on October 27. The Huskies have also split with Hockey East opposition, falling at UMass in the season opener, 4-1, before outplaying Merrimack in a 3-1 road victory on November 10.

    Canisius enters the weekend series at 3-6-4 (2-2-2 AHA), most recently downing AIC at home, 4-1.
