Tickets for UConn’s hockey games at Harbor Yard, including the holiday tournament Dec. 27-28, go on sale Friday morning at 10. The other three games are against Quinnipiac on Oct. 21, Colorado College on Jan. 6, and Notre Dame on Jan. 18. (The Sound Tigers’ and Huskies’ schedules still haven’t changed for Jan. 18, so times could change.)
A couple of notes from Wednesday: New Canaan’s Drew MacKenzie joins Jack Downing with South Carolina. And Hartford announced its training camp roster; it includes three with local or semi-local ties from its Greenville affiliate, Dallas Jackson and Sean Escobedo, plus Wallingford’s Pat Mullane.
And there are two Islanders/Sound Tigers, Anders Lee and Scott Mayfield, in this new and expensive Upper Deck AHL trading card set. Well, if you count the Toronto Marlies’ T.J. Brennan, the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins’ Harry Zolnierczyk, and the St. John’s IceCaps’ Kael Mouillierat, there are five. We’ll maybe wait for the traded set.
