Sparking Your Interest In Yale…

If you’re a player, parent, or coach who just recently started reading the Bulldog Pipeline, perhaps your interest about Yale has grown. We want to turn your attention to a previous post we ran back in October. In an effort to help educate players, parents, and coaches alike, we put a lot of useful information about Yale and our hockey program in one place–The Yale University Women’s Hockey ‘Spark’ Document. Designed and created by Assistant Coach Danielle Blanchard, this one-stop-shop document is perfect for anyone looking to know more about our hockey program and Yale as an institution. So click the link above to learn more!

Mid-Week NCAA Schedule…

In an earlier post we reported women’s hockey will be back playing games Jan. 1. That has now changed and New Hampshire will travel to Worcester to take on Holy Cross at the Hart Center Rink. Puck drop is scheduled for 5pm. The game will be streamed live and can be viewed for FREE. All NCAA conference streaming information can be found below at the bottom of the post.

New Hampshire vs. Holy Cross Preview…

These two teams met just before Christmas on December 23rd with New Hampshire exploding for a four-goal second period enroute to a 6-2 victory. It’s been a short break for both squads as they were last two NCAA teams to play before the holiday break. Looking ahead, Holy Cross has a quick turnaround as they head up to Burlington, VT for a New Year’s series with Vermont Jan. 1 & 2. New Hampshire has the weekend off and return to action Jan. 8-9 vs. Northeastern in Boston.

You can read previews for New Hampshire HERE and Holy Cross HERE.

Sifters…

Hockey East Cancels Games… Due to COVID testing date conflicts with the Boston University Women’s and Men’s teams returning to campus from the holiday break, each of their respective home-and-home series for this coming weekend have been cancelled. The women were set play New Hampshire and the Men vs. Northeastern.

Games Played Thus Far… In a quick scan of how the conference standings were matching up I began to notice how few games some teams have played. Of note, Wisconsin, Mercyhurst, Quinnipiac, Sacred Heart, Vermont, and Northeastern have only played 2 games thus far. In contrast, New Hampshire has played the most with 9 followed by Providence, Boston College, and MSU-Mankato with 8 and Holy Cross & UCONN with 7. If memory serves, 10 games played will be the magic number for NCAA tournament consideration this year. Normally, that number of games is 20.

Yale Traditions… Yale is a school steeped in tradition and has more than three centuries of history. One of those traditions is our mascot – Handsome Dan. You saw him on our Christmas day post – the bulldog, a.k.a., Walter. Handsome Dan was the first known ‘Mascot’ of a college or university. There have been 18 Handsome Dan’s through the years… Want to follow Walter on Twitter or Instagram?Learn about Walter’s history and the tradition that is our beloved mascot Walter HERE.
