Weight Room

The strength and conditioning program for the UConn women’s ice hockey team is coordinated and directed by Assistant Strength & Conditioning Coach Maureen Butler. UConn athletes have the use of two different weight rooms in Gampel Pavilion along with the Field House Weight Room, which feature custom made multi-use racks with platforms, dumbbell racks, cable machines and various Cybex Machines.

At the beginning of each season the Huskies hold an annual “Strongwoman Competition” which includes events such as the tire flip, sled pull and ‘Move the Mountain’. The competition takes place in the Mark R. Shenkman Training Center. The 85,000 square foot training center is located on campus and is the most modern facility of its kind in the country.


Academic Counseling The Counseling Program for Intercollegiate Athletes, a unit within the Division of Academic Affairs, is the academic support program for the University of Connecticut’s 650 student-athletes. The primary goal of the program is to assist student-athletes in reaching their educational goals while they compete in intercollegiate athletics. As academic affairs officers, CPIA counselors function as liaisons between the athletic and academic communities.

HUSKIES IN THE COMMUNITY

Skating Strides Against Breast Cancer

For the past six years, Connecticut has joined Hockey East in raising funds for Skating Strides Against Breast Cancer.

UConn has led the entire Hockey East conference in funds raised since the inception of Skating Strides Against Breast Cancer. Over the past five years the Huskies have raised more than $40,000.


Skate With The Huskies

The UConn women’s ice hockey team continued their annual tradition of hosting a “Skate With The Huskies” event, where kids from the local communities came to select games throughout the season and were able to skate with the team following the contests.

Community Center Painting The 2010-11 UConn women’s ice hockey team also helped out at a local community center this past school year, painting rooms and hallways to give the center an updated look.


2011 Whalers Hockey Fest Last season UConn participated in the historic Whalers Hockey Fest, playing outdoors for the first time in program history. The Huskies had their own “UConn Day” during the event, as the women faced off against Hockey East foe Providence and the men’s team hosted in-state rival Sacred Heart. The 2011 Whalers Hockey Fest was a 10-day event that featured professional, college, high school and prep school games. Prior to the women’s contest there was an open skating session, in which family, friends and alumni were able to join the UConn coaching staff on the ice.

Husky Honor Pride • Responsibility • Respect The University of Connecticut is committed to honoring collegiate athletic competition by demonstrating pride, responsibility and respect. The UConn community, fans, alumni, students, coaches and student-athletes promote these core values as proud Huskies and first class competitors.


H eather L instad Head Coach - 12th Season At the helm of the University of Connecticut women’s ice hockey program since its inception, head coach Heather Linstad is set to guide the Huskies in her 12th season behind the bench. Linstad has led the Huskies to seven Hockey East tournament appearances over the past nine seasons, including WHEA Championship appearances during 2009-10 and 2004-05. She has mentored six student-athletes to major Hockey East awards, including Alexandra Garcia who received Player of the Year Runner-Up honors following the 2010-11 season. Eleven members of the UConn women’s ice hockey team have garnered All-Hockey East Selections over the past eight years, including a pair of second team selections last season. Alexandra Garcia earned the second Hockey East award of her career, while Sami Evelyn notched her first WHEA accolade as they were both second team selections. Linstad has been a head coach for 19 seasons, spending the last 11 at UConn, collecting 154 of her 315 career victories with the Huskies. On February 13, 2010, with a 4-1 victory over Providence, Linstad captured her 300th career victory to become one of just six Division I women’s ice hockey coaches to achieve 300 or more wins in their career. That win placed Linstad among the elite, as there are only seven head coaches in either Division I or Division III women’s ice hockey to have won 300 or more games. This past June Linstad was selected as the head coach of the U.S. Women’s National Under-18 team and has been working with the squad during the USA Hockey Women’s National Festival.The first competition for Linstad and the U18 team came as a three-game series against Canada held in late August, in which the U.S. team captured a 3-2 victory in the opening contest. In early January, the U.S. U18 team will compete in the 2012 International Ice Hockey Federation World Women’s U18 Championship, which will be held in the Czech Republic. Linstad has also been a coach at the USA National Hockey Festival in Lake Placid, N.Y. five times, including the 1997 Festival which was an Olympic selection year. She has coached USA Hockey Junior Development Camps for athletes ranging from 14 to 18 years of age, while also taking part in the USA Rocky Mountain District Camp from 1996 through 2002 and again in 2004. Linstad served as the head coach of the Australian National Team in Sydney in July of 1996. Linstad and the Huskies had an up and down season during 2010-11, facing one of their toughest schedules to date. Nine of UConn’s games were against ranked opponents, including two against Minnesota Duluth, the 2010 national champion and three against Boston University, the 2011 national champion runner-up. Despite the tough regular season, the Huskies qualified for the WHEA Tournament for the fifth consecutive season. During the 2009-10 season, the Huskies reached the highest national ranking in program history when they were ranked No. 7 for two-consecutive weeks, ending the season at No. 9 according to the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine Poll. Connecticut spent 11 weeks among the nationally-ranked women’s ice hockey programs that season, while they also spent eight weeks among the top teams during 2008-09. Linstad and the UConn coaching staff guided the team to a 21-9-7 overall record and a fourth-place finish in the Hockey East standings during the 2009-10 season. The Huskies earned a place in the WHEA Championship game for the second time in program history, ultimately falling to NCAA Quarterfinal participant Boston University. Cristin Allen, Michelle Binning and Amy Hollstein all earned spots on the Hockey East All-Tournament Team, giving UConn the most number of honorees since joining the WHEA. The 2008-09 season saw Linstad lead the team to its third-consecutive Hockey East Tournament berth with a 10-8-3 conference record. UConn finished the season with a 19-12-4 overall mark, that included a nine-game winning streak, during which the Huskies defeated eventual national runnerup Mercyhurst at Mark Edward Freitas Ice Forum. UConn defended its Nutmeg Classic Title with its third-consecutive such championship, hosting Wayne State,Yale and Quinnipiac during the annual tournament. Linstad mentored a trio of student-athletes to post-season recognition that season, with Cristin Allen and Dominique Thibault each earning spots on the All-Hockey East Second Team while Brittany Wilson garnered honorable mention accolades. Allen was also honored with a spot on the New England Writers’ All-Star Team, becoming the sixth Connecticut student-athlete to do so. In 2009-10, Allen followed with her second-consecutive such honor, becoming the first Connecticut player to earn a spot on the New England Writers’ All-Star Team twice in their career. At the time, it was arguably the most successful season in women’s ice hockey history in Storrs, although the achievements of Linstad and her 2009-10 team challenged the 2007-08 squad that laid the foundation for success to come. The Huskies set a program-high for wins in a single season (22) and achieved the most number of Hockey East victories (13) in program history. En route to the nine-game winning streak that was tied in 2008-09, the 2007-08 Huskies won four games over nationally ranked opponents and set a plateau yet to be reached – an 11-game unbeaten streak. In addition to the team accolades achieved throughout the 2007-08 season, two individuals were acknowledged for the contributions to the team. Dominique Thibault was named the program’s first ever Hockey East Player of the Year and All-American. Jaclyn Hawkins became the team’s first student-athlete to earn the Sportsmanship Award, capping off one of the most successful women’s ice hockey careers in Husky Hockey. During the 2006-07 season, the Huskies defeated or tied five of the eight teams that advanced to the NCAA Tournament en route to their conference tournament appearance. UConn won 17 games, including 12 conference victories with four wins over nationally-ranked programs.

All program-bests would last just one year though, as Linstad and the Huskies set new records the fol1994 ECAC Coach of the Year lowing season. Among a season of highlights, UConn was the only team to hand eventual Frozen Four 1989 ECAC Player of the Year participant, Boston College a pair of losses at home. Following a stellar rookie campaign, Hawkins was a record setter, creating new plateaus in career goals, assists and points and was one of four different 2011 USA Hockey U18 Head Coach Connecticut players to take hardware home from the 2006-07 Hockey East Banquet. Three-Time USA Hockey National In a season hampered by injuries, the 2005-06 Huskies fell in the Nutmeg Classic title game a Festival Head Coach year after capturing the championship for the first time. UConn concluded the season with a 12-21-1 (1997, 1998, 2003) overall record that included a 10-11-0 mark in Hockey East action. Midway through the year, four Connecticut student-athletes were selected to the Hockey East All-Star Team, which was led by Linstad, that took on Team USA in an exhibition game. at Connecticut The senior class of 2004-05 achieved one of their objectives, ending the year among the top 10 programs in the nation according to both the USCHO.com and USA Today/American Hockey Maga- 2010-11.............................................. 13-19-3 zine polls after finishing the season with a 16-12-8 record.

Expanding their community involvement has also seen the Huskies create a Christmas evening for a YMCA girls’ home with Linstad’s team supplying the tree, ornaments, lights and gifts while sharing *ECAC Champions pizza, in an effort to create invaluable memories. Most recently, the Huskies spent time painting rooms at a local community center and reading with students at Connecticut elementary schools. A native of Chlemsford, Mass., Linstad came to Connecticut after compiling a 161-71-27 overall record at the helm of the Northeastern University women’s ice hockey team for eight seasons. While at Northeastern, Linstad guided those Huskies to four Beanpot titles and earned one of the four berths to the first-ever collegiate Women’s Ice Hockey National Championship Tournament (AWCHA) in 1998. Before that, Linstad guided Northeastern to the ECAC Championship in 1997 while boasting a then-school-record 27 wins. Just prior to joining UConn, Linstad was inducted to the Chelmsford High School Hall of Fame in 2000. Linstad, a 1989 graduate of Providence College, earned a degree in business administration while representing the Friars in three varsity sports. She was team captain for three of the four seasons she played on the women’s ice hockey team, scoring 76 goals and adding 72 assists. Linstad is 16th on Providence’s all-time career points list, 10th in goals and 18th in assists. She was awarded the 1989 ECAC Player of the Year Award and continues to hold the distinction of being the only individual to earn the ECAC Player of the Year Award and the ECAC Coach of the Year Award. In addition to her outstanding ice hockey career at Providence, Linstad played three seasons of soccer and spent a year on the softball squad. Linstad currently resides in Vernon, Conn. with her black lab, Sydney.


J aime T otten Assistant Coach - 12th Season As an instrumental part of the UConn foundation, Jaime Totten enters her 12th season as an assistant coach for the University of Connecticut women’s ice hockey program. Totten has been with the program since its inception and she will continue to be an integral part of head coach Heather Linstad’s staff. Totten will resume her position as the recruiting coordinator for Connecticut as she has since the day she began, continually bringing in student-athletes who make an immediate impact on the ice and in the classroom. In addition to her recruiting responsibilities, Totten runs the defensive end of the bench, assists in daily practices and preparations, directs special teams plays and directs the team alumni efforts. Under her tutelage, Cristin Allen became the first-ever Connecticut player to be named to the New England Writer’s All-Star Team twice in her career, doing so following the 2009-10 season. Allen also earned back-to-back All-Hockey East accolades and was named the league’s inaugural Best Defensemen with the guidance of Totten. Since 2004, three UConn defensemen have earned eight All-Hockey East honors. Totten served as an assistant coach with the 2009-10 Hockey East All-Star Team that included Allen, Amy Hollstein, and Jody Sydor.

She was awarded the National Student Athlete Award and was named a Scholar Athlete during her career. A native of Stafford, N.Y., Totten currently resides in Mansfield Center, Conn.


K irsti A nderson Assistant Coach - Third Season Kirsti Anderson returns for her third season as part of the UConn coaching staff, primarily working with the defensive unit. Anderson also helps with on-ice practice and game preparation, while assisting with the Huskies’ alumni efforts. During the 2009-10 season, Anderson helped guide the Huskies to their highest ever national ranking at No. 7, surpassing the plateau of the eighth-national ranking set by the 2004-05 squad. The 2009-10 team also matched the 2004-05 squad in earning Connecticut’s second Hockey East Championship Game appearance. Prior to joining the Connecticut staff, Anderson served in the same role at Hamilton College for two seasons, while also contributing to the recruiting and travel planning in addition to her coaching responsibilities. Under her guidance, defenseman Kate Marek earned a spot on the NESCAC First Team, leading the conference in defensemen scoring during the 2008-09 season. Anderson attended the NCAA Women Coaches Academy in 2008 following a brief time with the Union College women’s ice hockey team as a volunteer assistant. There, Anderson conducted weekly video sessions and contributed to the defensive elements of the game during games and practices. Her collegiate playing experience began at Division III Bowdoin where Anderson was a First-Team All-American on a pair of Final Four squads. She was acknowledged as the NESCAC’s Rookie of the Year and Bowdoin College’s Freshman Female Athlete of the Year.

2011-12 Season Preview Heading into the season, University of Connecticut head coach Heather Linstad named seniors Sami Evelyn, a Second Team Hockey East All-Star, and Rebecca Hewett as the team captains as well as junior Maude Blain as an assistant captain. Each will play a major role this season, but the most notable change from last season will be the transition from defenseman to center for Evelyn. She was third on the team in points from the backline last season with 19, on five goals and a team-high 14 assists. This year she will be looked to as a playmaker, centering the top line. Evelyn will provide a much needed upperclassman presence amongst the forwards. As a whole, the team boasts just seven seniors and juniors playing alongside a deep group of sophomores and freshmen. At forward, the Huskies will rely on a number of young players to be key components of the offense. Sophomores Taylor Gross and Alexandra Vakos return after successful rookie seasons. Gross led UConn in scoring last year with 23 points, on a team-leading 12 goals and 11 assists, while Vakos contributed 12 points and was named the Hockey East Rookie of the Month for the month of January. Junior Kelly Horan is the veteran returnee on offense after scoring nine goals and dishing out nine assists for 18 total points last season. Freshmen Rachel Farrel, Sarah MacDonnell and Emily Snodgrass will join them up top and all be counted on to produce early in their college careers. Despite Evelyn’s move to forward, the Connecticut defense will still be relied upon as one of the team’s strongest offensive weapons. Blain and Hewett have each proven to be dynamic playmakers from the backline, recording 10 and eight assists, respectively. Red-shirt sophomore Maggie Walsh, a transfer from the University of Vermont, and freshman Caitlin Hewes will also be contributing members of the UConn defense. Offensively, the defense will be a key to scoring in transition. It is seen as a faster unit from a year ago that will play with the intent of being in good scoring positions. Senior goaltender Alexandra Garcia returns to the crease after an outstanding 2010-11 season. She was named the Pure Hockey Player of the Year Runner-Up and was selected a Second Team Hockey East All-Star. In net, Garcia held a .921 save percentage, totaling 903 saves, and a 2.60 goals against average. Sophomore Nicole Paniccia will also be seeking opportunities in the cage. Her season was slowed down following an injury at Robert Morris, but Paniccia still appeared in six games, making five starts. She finished the year with 129 saves for a .915 save percentage and owned a 2.36 GAA. According to coach Linstad, both goaltenders give the Huskies a chance to win. Last season, the University of Connecticut women’s ice hockey team put together a 13-19-3 season and made its fifth straight Hockey East Tournament with a 9-9-3 conference record, earning the fourth seed in the tournament. The Huskies season ended with a quarterfinal round loss on their home ice to Providence, but a new season begins and UConn returns to the ice, aiming to take the next step. The Huskies open the 2011-12 campaign as they face-off with Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute for a pair of games at the Freitas Ice Forum on September 30 and October 1. Following the season-opening series against RPI, Connecticut visits St. Lawrence and Clarkson on October 8 and 9, before returning home to host No. 6 Minnesota-Duluth. Playing well early in the year against tough non-conference opponents will go a long way for the Huskies as they try to build confidence and carry over success into the Hockey East season. The first conference match-up for UConn is a home series against Maine on October 21 and 22. This season, Connecticut hosts the Nutmeg Classic over Thanksgiving weekend. The Huskies face-off against intrastate rival Quinnipiac on November 25, with the championship and consolation games being held the following day. Yale and Robert Morris will round out the field.

2010-11 Season Highlights UConn Makes Seventh Hockey East Tournament Appearance After posting a 9-9-3 conference record, the Huskies qualified for the Hockey East Tournament for the seventh time in nine seasons. As the No. 4 seed, UConn made its fifth consecutive appearance and held home ice advantage for just the second time. Garcia & Evelyn Earn Hockey East Post Season Awards Two Huskies earned post season awards from the Hockey East Association, as Alexandra Garcia and Sami Evelyn were both named Second Team All-Stars. Garcia was also named the WHEA Pure Hockey Player of the Year Runner-Up, after posting 903 saves, a .921 save percentage and a 2.60 goals against average. Garcia and Evelyn’s accolades marked the fifth time that two or more Huskies were named to a post season all-star team. Freshman Class Makes Strong Impact On Offense The 2010-11 freshman class was a guiding force behind the Huskies offense last season, as the rookies combined for 69 points including seven gamewinning goals. Alexandra Vakos was named the Pro Ambitions Rookie of the Month for January, after posting six points on three goals and three assists leading the Huskies on a five-game win streak.Vakos became the fifth Husky to earn the honor. Taylor Gross and Stephanie Raithby also collected weekly hardware from the conference office, as they were each named Rookies of the Week throughout the season. UConn Takes to Ice for Skating Strides Program For the sixth-straight season UConn headlined the Hockey East’s Breast Cancer Awareness fundraising program, Skating Strides Against Breast Cancer, raising $9,000 during the 2010-11 season. The Huskies have led the entire conference in funds raised since the inception of the program, raising more than $40,000 over the past six years.

Taylor Gross (L) and Alexandra Vakos (R) each made an immediate impact in their rookie season.

Husky Class of 2011 Leaves Lasting Mark 2011 Seniors Jennifer Chaisson and Jody Sydor finished their UConn careers ranked among the all-time best, as they both etched their names in the Husky record book. Sydor finished sixth all-time with 41 career assists, while Chaisson finished third with 57 career assists, fourth with 87 career points and eighth with 27 career goals. Along with Brittany Murphy, the 2011 senior class led the Huskies to a 75-48-19 record over the past four years, including a 42-28-14 mark in Hockey East contests. The group also led the Huskies to the Hockey East playoffs four times, including a WHEA Championship appearance as juniors. UConn Plays Outdoors At Rentschler Field The Huskies had a program first during 2010-11, as UConn played outdoors at Rentschler Field in conjunction with the Whaler’s Hockey Fest. Connecticut hosted Providence in a pivotal Hockey East showdown, while the men’s team hosted Sacred Heart as part of UConn Day. Prior to the games, the Huskies held an open skate in which family, friends and alumni were able to experience the feel of an outdoor game. Linstad’s Career Wins Continue to Climb With each win, head coach Heather Linstad added to her career total, which already surpassed 300 in 2010, as she finished the season with 315 career victories. For Connecticut, she reached the 150-win milestone with a 1-0 win over Vermont on January 15 at the Frietas Ice Forum. In eleven years behind the bench for the Huskies, Linstad has amassed a career record of 154-166-44. Her 315 career wins place her in the company of just five other Division I coaches to have won at least 300 games.

UConn took part in the “Whalers Hockey Fest” on February 13 against Providence at Rentschler Field. 2011-12 UConn WOMEN’S ICE Hockey

2010-11 Season Review UConn opened the 2010-’11 campaign at home against #10 New Hampshire, the first of nine games against ranked opponents, with a narrow 2-1 defeat. Connecticut later swept a home-and-home series with the unranked Wildcats in November to take the season series. The other ranked teams on the slate for the Huskies were Boston University, ranked as high as third, Minnesota-Duluth, and Boston College, whom the Huskies tied 2-2 at home on October 30 when the Eagles were ranked eighth in the nation. Stephanie Raithby and Maude Blain each scored late in the first period and Alexandra Garcia turned away 36 shots to draw even with BC. Connecticut participated in the Nutmeg Classic, hosted by Quinnipiac in Hamden, Conn., on Thanksgiving weekend. The Huskies fell to Yale 5-2 on November 26, but responded with an 11-0 offensive outburst against Sacred Heart in the consolation game the following night. Taylor Gross, who scored against the Bulldogs, netted three goals and an assist to lead the UConn attack. Jennifer Chaisson, the Huskies’ other goal scorer against Yale, dished out three assists, while Jocelyn Slattery collected a career-high five helpers.

Support Staff Strength and Conditioning

Maureen Butler • Asst. Strength & Conditioning Coach

The strength and conditioning program for the University of Connecticut is under the supervision of UConn Strength and Conditioning Coordinator Jerry Martin. The Strength and Conditioning staff services all 24 of Connecticut’s intercollegiate teams. Assisting directly with the Strength and conditioning efforts for UConn hockey is strength and conditioning staff member Maureen Butler. Butler has worked with the USA Women's Hockey U-18 team. UConn hockey players have the use of two different weight rooms in the Harry A. Gampel Pavilion and the newly remodeled Hugh S. Greer Field House. In all, there are over 8,000 square feet of weight training facilities available for all UConn student-athletes. The weight room in the Harry A. Gampel Pavilion is a free weight facility and supplies the Husky student-athletes areas in which to perform their power and Olympic lifts. The facility in the Greer Field House is fitted with more free weights in which the UConn hockey players can incorporate circuit training, speed training and heavy negative workouts into their total strength-training program. Jerry Martin and his staff supervise a strength and conditioning program for each individual athlete for training all year long. Each program can be manipulated in order to fulfill the specific needs of the individual. Specific testing is done to each hockey player to monitor progress in strength, power, body composition, anaerobic conditioning and flexibility. These tests provide the coaches and medical staff with an accurate athletic profile on each athlete.

Counseling Program for Intercollegiate Athletes

Becky Taylor • CPIA Counselor

The University of Connecticut is committed to each hockey player, and all of its student-athletes, as a total person. Participation in athletics is important, but it represents only one aspect of the student-athlete’s college experience. At the University of Connecticut, academic achievement is the primary concern. Impressively, for the past five years the Connecticut student-athlete retention rate has been 99.0 percent. The University's commitment to the student-athlete is a dual one. Participation in athletics is not viewed as an obstacle to the attainment of one's educational goals, rather it is seen as a complementary activity. Each supports the other. Athletic excellence is stressed, but academic achievement is never compromised - indeed, it is given the utmost priority. The University realizes that the hockey team and all student-athletes, due to their academic involvement, are required to commit a large percentage of their personal time to University sponsored athletic activities. For this reason, the University recognizes the need for a support program for its intercollegiate athletes. The Counseling Program for Intercollegiate Athletes (CPIA) constantly assists all student-athletes in achieving their academic goals. The CPIA staff serves as a liaison to the academic faculty, the Division of Athletics, and the student-athlete. In serving as a liaison between the Connecticut student-athletes and University faculty and staff, the CPIA counselors also provide assistance in securing appropriate support services available with the University. These include orientation for student-athletes, supervised study halls, individual tutors and tutorial centers (an English/Writing Center, Math Center and Reading Center), and learning skills seminars. For the past three years, the writing lab and computers have been networked to a national database which allow all student-athletes to do research at their actual computer stations.

Department of Sports Medicine

Dr. Tom Trojian • Team Physician Janelle Francisco • Athletic Trainer

The Department of Sports Medicine in the University of Connecticut Division of Athletics works as an integrated multidisciplinary team whose purpose is to provide the optimal, safe environment for the hockey student-athletes to train and participate in their sport. The staff takes great pride in the individual attention paid to each student-athlete. They are devoted to preventing injury, rapidly diagnosing and treating injury and maximizing athletic performance. The disciplines of athletic training, strength and conditioning, sports medicine, orthopaedic sports medicine, optometry, nutrition, exercise physiology, and psychology work in concert to provide comprehensive care for the student-athlete. The women's hockey team is spearheaded by Athletic Trainer Janelle Francisco. Physician coverage is provided by Jeffrey Anderson, MD, the Director of Sports Medicine and Team Physician Thomas Trojian, MD. The Orthopaedic Sports Medicine Specialists for the team include Edward Collins, MD of the Connecticut Sports Medicine and Orthopaedic Center in Willimantic, Barry Messinger, MD of Sports Medicine and Orthopaedic Surgery in Manchester, Michael Joyce, MD of Glastonbury and St. Francis Hospital and Robert Arciero, MD of the University of Connecticut Health Center Department of Orthopaedics in Farmington. The Department of Sports Medicine works intimately with the Departments of Kinesiology and Nutritional Sciences on the University of Connecticut campus. This affords the student-athletes with the input of several nationally recognized exercise scientists. This cooperation also keeps the sports medicine staff at the cutting edge of developments in the fields of human performance and sports nutrition. Members of the sports medicine staff are actively engaged in research that directly benefits the care of all student-athletes. The UConn Sports Medicine team is housed in state-of-the-art facilities in the Hugh S. Greer Field House and the Harry A. Gampel Pavilion, as well as a new and expanded sports medicine treatment center located in The Burton Family Football Complex. In addition to providing the finest in medical care for the UConn hockey program, the Department of Sports Medicine at the University of Connecticut administers to the daily needs of 600 male and female intercollegiate student-athletes who are competing in 24 different varsity programs. The Department of Sports Medicine at the University of Connecticut plays a critical role in assuring that all UConn student-athletes have 24-hour access to the finest medical support and quality health care possible. Through patient care and ongoing research and education, the department continues to provide Husky teams a competitive edge from the medical perspective.

Jim Prior 2011-12 Graduate Intern........................................................ Andrew Zagorianakos The Women’s Hockey East Association will celebrate its 10th anniversary season of play after officially commencing league action in the fall of 2002. In nine years, the conference has emerged as one of the top women’s ice hockey conferences in the nation, having sent five teams to the Frozen Four and 11 teams to the NCAA Tournament, which includes the most successful season in 2010-2011, sending Boston University and Boston College to the Frozen Four with the Terriers making the league’s second appearance in the NCAA National Championship Game. In 2011, the Boston College Eagles earned their first WHEA Tournament Championship in school history defeating Northeastern. The Terriers hosted the ninth annual tournament championship at Walter Brown Arena as the top seed in the tournament, claiming first regularseason championship in school history. BC’s Kelli Stack was named Player of the Year for a league-record third time in the spring and BU’s Marie-Philip Poulin took home Rookie of the Year honors. PC’s Bob Deraney won the Coach of the Year Award for the second consecutive season. Vermont freshman defensemen Megan Dalbec posted a 4.0 GPA to earn Hockey East TopScholar Athlete honors headlining the list of a league-record 89 student-athletes named to the WHEA All-Academic Team in 2010-2011. The league also honored four student-athletes that received “Distinguished Scholar” status. Those earning “Distinguished Scholar” status achieved a 3.0 or better in each semester over four varsity seasons. Maine’s Jennie Gallo and Danielle Cyr were two teammates honored with the distinction, while Boston College’s Molly Schaus and UNH’s Kayley Herman were also recipients of the honor. In February 2007, the league debuted its inaugural “Skating Strides Against Breast Cancer”. The one-day event was hosted by Hockey East schools as a way to establish a greater fan base, to raise needed funds, and to work with the specific charities to raise awareness for both the league and the specific cause. In the initial year, close to $20,000 was donated back to local breast cancer charities (Friends of Mel’s Foundation and the American Cancer Society), vastly exceeding expectations. Last year, over $31,000 dollars was raised to bring the fouryear total to over $145,000. “Skating Strides” has won two national awards at NACMA in the “Single Day Attendance Promotion” category in 2007 and 2009. The fifth annual “Skating Strides Against Breast Cancer” will have an event on every WHEA campus this season, as well as participation by all of the Hockey East men’s teams.

2011-12 UConn WOMEN’S ICE Hockey

History As women’s ice hockey steadily expanded from its original status as an emerging sport to its current status as an established NCAA championship sport, it became apparent that Hockey East should seriously consider sponsoring a separate league to accommodate its five member schools that initially had varsity programs for women: Boston College, Maine, New Hampshire, Northeastern and Providence. The uncertainty remained until a split in the Eastern College Athletic Conference grouped the five aforementioned programs into a separate league, the ECAC Women’s Eastern League, along with three other unaffiliated programs. Seeking league solidarity, administrators from the five Hockey East institutions acted. In September of 2001, the long-incubated idea became a reality when the athletic directors voted to found the new women’s league under the existing Hockey East banner, with play scheduled to begin no later than the 2004-05 season. The five schools with varsity programs entered as charter members with the stipulation that any other Hockey East school that added a varsity women’s program in the future would be freely admitted to the league. Expediting the process in the interests of the participating teams, the league and the sport itself, Commissioner Joe Bertagna worked with a selected task force to successfully prepare the Hockey East women’s league for launch in the 2002-03 season, two years ahead of schedule. An important part of that process was the acceptance of an invitation extended to the University of Connecticut to join the newly formed league as its sixth active member. The triumphant effort immediately afforded the participating administrators a stronger voice in the advancement of their women’s ice hockey programs and alleviated the ECAC of continuing the maintenance of the Women’s Eastern League. Players, fans, coaches and administrators alike were all anticipating the intensified competition created by the new circle of teams that were already familiar rivals. In 2005, the Women’s Hockey East Association welcomed the addition of two more teams to its growing family, Boston University and the University of Vermont. For BU, it marked the inaugural season for women’s hockey as a varsity sport. Although theWomen’s Hockey East Association is still in its infancy, its member programs have storied histories that include several championships and individual awards at the highest levels of play. The first 13 ECAC championships were

shared among New Hampshire, Northeastern and Providence, all charter members of Hockey East. Northeastern forward Brooke Whitney was named the recipient of the 2002 Patty Kazmaier Award as the nation’s top female collegiate player, an honor first won by New Hampshire’s Brandy Fisher in 1998. Had the award been in existence beforehand, it surely would have been won at some point by Cammi Granato, a three-time ECAC Player of the Year who led Providence to back-to-back championships in 1992 and 1993. Five years later, in 1998, alongside nine other alums of what are now Hockey East programs, Granato captained Team USA to the Olympic gold medal during the first Olympic tournament that featured women’s ice hockey as a medal sport. Granato will be inducted into the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame in October for her contributions to the sport. Beginning in 2009, the WHEA athletic directors voted to honor the league Player of the Year with the Cammi Granato Award. Perhaps the proudest legacy that the Women’s Hockey East Association has established is the Hockey Humanitarian Award. The most prestigious off-ice honor, and arguably the highest overall honor in the sport, the Hockey Humanitarian Award recognizes college hockey’s finest citizen each year and encompasses both male and female athletes in all divisions. Its winners have demonstrated outstanding contributions to society through leadership in charity work and volunteerism. Northeastern senior forward Missy Elumba was the 2009 recipient, as the fifth Hockey East student-athlete to receive the prestigious honor. Elumba was the 14th all-time recipient and joined former Husky goaltender Chanda Gunn, who received the award in 2004, as the second athlete in Northeastern women’s hockey history. BC’s Sarah Carlson received it in 2005, making Women’s Hockey East the first league to boast back-to-back winners.
