STORRS, Conn. – The UConn women’s ice hockey team will welcome Vermont to the Mark Edward Freitas Ice Forum for two games this weekend. The Huskies and the Catamounts will meet on Friday, Jan. 27 for a 7 p.m. puck drop and will come back together on Saturday, Jan. 28 at 2 p.m.

Following the conclusion of Saturday’s game, fans are invited to skate with the Huskies and join the members of both the UConn men’s and women’s ice hockey teams for a post-game skate.

UConn (11-12-3, 6-9-1 WHEA) is looking to snap a four-game losing skid after being swept by Providence and Northeastern. Most recently, the Huskies kept it close throughout the series with Northeastern but ultimately fell to the rival Huskies 3-2 Friday and 5-3 on the road Saturday.

Junior Leah Lum (Richmond, B.C.) took credit for both UConn goals in game one of the series Friday and tallied a third on the road Saturday. Junior goaltender Annie Belanger (Sherbrooke, Quebec) finished with 60 combined saves in the home-and-home series with Northeastern.

UCONN LEADERS
1. Leah Lum – 22 points (14g, 8a)
2. Briana Colangelo – 20 points (7g, 13a)
3. Theresa Knutson – 17 points (8g, 9a)

The Husky and the Catamounts met earlier this season at Gutterson Field House where the two played to a 1-1 draw after overtime. UVM took a 1-0 lead 10:03 into the first period, but two minutes later, junior Justine Fredette (Winnipeg, Manitoba) knotted up the score on the power play. UConn and Vermont followed that up with 53 minutes of scoreless play to end in a tie.

SCOUTING THE CATAMOUNTS
Record: 10-9-7, 6-5-5 WHEA
The Series: 24-7-3, UConn leads
Last Time Out: Nov. 20, 2016 | Burlington, Vt.| T, 1-1 (OT)

Vermont is 2-2-2 in its last six contests with two wins against Maine, followed by back-to-back ties against Boston University and two losses to Boston College. The Catamounts have an alarming seven ties this year, the most of any team in the league, including five against Hockey East opponents.

UVM was 6-3-5 in Hockey East games before suffering back-to-back losses to BC. Vermont led BC 2-0 in game one, but the Eagles scored two unanswered goals and then notched the game-winner in overtime. The Eagles then shutout the Catamounts 3-0 in game two with all three goals coming in the second period.

VERMONT LEADERS
1. Eve-Audrey Picard – 17 points (9g, 8a)
2. Alyssa Gorecki – 16 points (8g, 8a)
3. Saana Valkama – 15 points (4g, 11a)
