STORRS, Conn. – The University of Connecticut women’s ice hockey team opens its 2016-17 regular season with a two-game road series at Union beginning Friday, Sept. 30 at Messa Rink.

UConn, who was picked to finish fourth in the 2016-17 Hockey East preseason coaches’ poll, capped off last season with its second straight trip to the WHEA semifinals where they fell to No. 1 Boston College and finished with a 17-15-5 overall record for the 2015-16 season.

UCONN LEADERS (2015-16 returners)
1. Theresa Knutson – 28 points (19g, 9a)
2. Justine Fredette – 26 points (8g, 18a)
3. Leah Lum – 23 points (10g, 13a)

Seven newcomers join the 15 returning veterans to round out the Husky squad this season under fourth-year head coach Chris MacKenzie. Senior defenseman Jessica Stott (Niverville, Manitoba) and junior Justine Fredette (Winnipeg, Manitoba) will captain the Huskies for the 2016-17 season.

SCOUTING THE DUTCHWOMEN

The Series: 3-3-2
Last Time Out: Oct. 3, 2015 | Storrs, Conn. | T, 2-2 (OT) 

Union hosted Concordia University (Quebec) in an exhibition match on Sept. 24 where the Dutchwomen suffered a 5-1 loss to the Stingers. After being down 5-0 with less than two minutes to play in the third period, freshman Jordi Naidrich put Union on the board at the very end.

UNION LEADERS (2015-16 returners)
1. Alli Devins – 7 points (1g, 6a)
2. Brandy Streeter – 6 points (6a)
3. Kathryn Davis – 3 points (3a) 

The Dutchwomen welcome a large freshman class of 11 newcomers this season under first-year head coach Josh Sciba, who takes the reins after Union went 0-28-6 in the 2015-16 season.
