Circle These Dates

  • 2/16 (vs. St. John’s): Despite a seven-point game from Griffin Feiner, the Hawks gave up two separate 5-0 runs to the Red Storm, as well as a seven-point effort from Joe Madsen. That was also despite Dylan Protesto going 21-of-29 from the faceoff X.
  • 2/26 (vs. Marist): Both teams expected to have good seasons last year but came up well short of their expectations. Each program has had a good amount of seasons in the past, including conference championships and appearances in the NCAA Tournament.
  • 3/5 (at Manhattan): The Jaspers have a good duo in Parker Giarratana and Trevor Pelletier at attack that can provide some offense for Manhattan. Hartford loses over 70% of their offense and will need plenty of their younger players to step up. It could be an opportunity for the Jaspers to pull off a mild upset.
  • 3/9 (vs. Sacred Heart): One of the three Hawk wins last year came against Sacred Heart thanks to a goal in the final 30 seconds of the game. Feiner came up clutch by scoring the game-winner with 18 seconds left in regulation, one of his six goals on the day. Max Tuttle scored five goals and added an assist for the Pioneers and returns to Sacred Heart this year.
  • 4/6 (vs. UMass Lowell): After winning the America East Tournament in 2016, Hartford didn’t win a game inside the conference last season. Their losses to Stony Brook and UMass Lowell were the closest margins of victory (two goals). The River Hawks had their best season in their short history, going 8-8 and getting the fourth seed in the conference tournament. They overcame an early 5-0 deficit to take the two-goal win thanks to a five-goal and six-goal run.
