HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - The UAH Chargers hockey team opens the season Friday against UConn, a program who will for sure test the Chargers out of the gate.
The Huskies part of the Hockey East Conference, that has a who's who of powerhouses in the country, like preseason number one Boston College, Boston University who reached the Frozen four title game, and Notre Dame.
For UAH coach Mike Corbett, this is not only a big weekend for his program, but for the WCHA also.
"UConn is a big name in hockey. They've become that in the past two or three years. They've got a big freshman class also," said UAH hockey head coach Mike Corbett. "The difference between theirs and ours is probably five NFL Draft picks, so we know where their talent is coming from, and they've got some good returning players. I think it's going to be a good exciting hockey weekend."
The Chargers will face the Huskies Friday and Saturday night at the Von Braun Center at 7:07 CT. On Friday, the first 500 fans will receive free UAH Chargers t-shirts.
