Hockey East announced the rescheduled dates between UConn men’s hockey and the Merrimack Warriors. The two teams will square off at the XL Center on Tuesday, Jan. 25 at 7:05 p.m. before the Huskies make the return trip to Lawler Rink on Tuesday, Feb. 8 at 7 p.m. Both games will be streamed for free on SportsLive.

UConn and Merrimack were initially scheduled to play a home-and-home on Dec. 3 and 4 but the games were postponed due to a COVID outbreak within the Huskies’ program. Their subsequent series against AIC was also bumped because of the virus.

Fans who held tickets to the UConn-Merrimack game on Dec. 4 in Hartford can use the same tickets on Jan. 25. Anyone who cannot make it to the game should call the UConn ticket office for other accommodations.

The Huskies are 8-6-0 on the season but haven’t played since Nov. 27 due to a combination of the COVID outbreak and winter break. UConn is slated to face off at Harvard on Sunday, Jan. 2 at 7 p.m. Harvard recently announced it will not allow fans at games in January due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases.
