UConn hockey hosts Hartford Whalers night

(WTNH)–Hartford Whalers fans from all across the state came out to the XL Center on Friday night for the UConn-Vermont hockey game, and to reminisce about their old NHL team. It was Whalers Night in Hartford, and we caught up with plenty of fans who still remember and miss the Whale.

One fan recalled being at the last game, using a manilla folder to put up a sign, and getting a stick from one of the players. A few others were hopeful that the Whalers would return at some point in the near future.
