College Hockey:
Ice, snow force closure of UConn’s rink; Saturday game moved to Hartford

According to an NBC affiliate in Connecticut, Connecticut’s home rink, the Freitas Ice Forum, has been closed due to an over-abundance of snow and ice on the roof of the arena.

Structural concerns led the school to move Saturday’s game against Army to the XL Center in Hartford, Conn. It will start at 7 p.m. EST, and admission will be free.

Freitas rink also serves as the home rink for E.O. Smith, Tolland and Windham high schools co-op team and the Northeast Ice Dogs youth hockey program.
