I'm sure he doesn't want one...
He could play. I'm sure he'll want to. Cav will have to make the call
He played what...
Monday, weds, and last night.
Day off today
Like someone said earlier, not all shifts and maybe just on the PP.
Then, he'll have 4 full days before Maine game @ BPT
I would like to see him on sat, but I understand and do want a healthy rage for the rest of yr.
I'm pretty excited about the game, but my wife thinks of gone overboard....
He won't practice today most likely and I'd bet he's a game time decision. Yale is also a bad team, UConn should be able to win the game even if he doesn't play. Really not worth risking an injury against a bad opponent when he's played 150 minutes of hockey in the past 48 hours.

UConn's Tage Thompson, fresh off gold for Team USA at WJC, will be in the lineup against Yale Saturday, according to coach Mike Cavanaugh.

Man, 0-11-0 against yale. Let's hope that changes tmrw.
That's why I feel like this game is so important....we need to dominate Connecticut hockey. I realize we have a ways to go when it comes to Quinnipiac, but I feel like we'll get there pretty soon. Right now, they seem to have our number.
UConn Hockey Has Been Rolling; Big Test Awaits Vs. Yale Saturday
Will be up to tage to play or not if he feels strong enough. Karl El-Mir will not play due to mono.
Don't worry about parking on Hartford streets until 7pm, then a parking ban goes into effect. Parking ban from 7pm sat to 7pm sun. (Do they mean 7am sun?)
Hockey Fans Safe Saturday Night In Hartford Despite Parking Ban
Weather will keep people away
Come on, it's hockey weather!
Not easy when you gotta drive an hour each way during clean days.
Should have been pushed back to tomorrow. It would have been the most attended game of the year but now it will not be. This program cannot catch a break when it comes to growing a following for home games. My guess is less than 4000.
It will be interesting to see the announced attendance figure versus reality.
BBall plays UCF tmr at XL 5PM start...Doable but a quick turnaround for sure.
Didn't realize that
It will be tickets distributed like nearly all sports levels these days. No pep band I guess as they are selling their seats online(unless they move behind net as students are on break)
Already downtown. Been at teds for awhile and I can tell people are downtown, but haven't bar hopped around yet.
My guess... 8k distributed, 6-7k will show up.
I was just downtown for a bridal expo. There was a lot of people around
It really bums me out that these games are never on TV. NESN used to show a fair amount of HE games.
HockeyEastOnline.com - Hockey East Television Schedule
I hear ya. They could broadcast way more. Frozen Fenway will be on TV as well as @ Vermont on 1/20 6pm
SNY should air games in addition to NESN.
El-Mir not in Cav dressing 7 defense-man. Hopefully Karl is healthy.
Has mono. Not in today. It was in today's courant article
bummer he was playing so well too.
NESN was scheduled to show the Fenway games today so they wouldn't have had the slot to do so and definitely aren't driving a TV crew down to Hartford in this weather.
It'd be lovely if UConn had some brains and opened up the internet live stream for free to those who wanted to go but stayed home because of the snow. Many other HE teams now stream home games for free and it's a great way to get your fans excited for the program.
El-Mir missed last weekend's games because of mono, too.
Yea I should've realized something happened when I saw Nelson inserted into the lineup but didn't investigate.
It would be doable if they wanted to play hockey at 10am.
What is the actual listen link? I click the one on twitter and it's NFL and NBA talk. Go to WHUS and all the 3 links at the top of the page, none have the game?
WTIC 1080 has the game today. This season WHUS rarely picks up games that WTIC is carrying. I suspect that Alex Giner helps out in some way on the WTIC broadcasts, but I don't know that for certain.
