Before Saturday night’s game against the Union College Dutchmen, it had been 24 days since the UConn Huskies played a hockey game. They were off for finals and a little part of the Christmas break.

The team returned back to practice on Christmas night and head coach Mike Cavanaugh was very pleased with what he saw.

Watch and/or listen below as Cavanaugh talks about the shape his team was in following the long layoff.
