Tigers, Wildcats participate in Operation Hat Trick promotion

Colorado College and New Hampshire players both donned baseball caps during the announcement of the starting lineups Friday night as part of Operation Hat Trick, a program designed to support the nation’s veterans. Started by UNH senior associate athletic director Dot Sheehan in 2008, Operation Hat Trick began as an effort to memorialize Nate Hardy - the son of UNH professor Stephen Hardy and his wife, Donna - and Mike Koch, two Navy Seals who were killed in Iraq that year.

Fans at the game were able to purchase limited quantities of black hats sporting the UNH and CC logos before and during the game for $20, with a portion of the proceeds going to OHT.

Etc.

Including New Hampshire’s pair of even-strength goals in the first period of Friday night’s game, CC has been outscored 7-1 in the first period of their last three games. … Coming into Friday night’s game, New Hampshire had won seven in a row and 10 of 11 against CC. … No. 3 New Hampshire goes up the road a bit Saturday night to take on No. 2 Denver in a rare early season top-five matchup. … CC senior center Rylan Schwartz scored just 12 goals in his first 77 games for the Tigers, but had lit the lamp 32 times in 49 games heading into Friday night’s tilt against New Hampshire. … Junior left wing Archie Skalbeck entered Friday night’s game with a five-game point-scoring streak. … New Hampshire goalie Casey DeSmith was named the Hockey East Defensive Player of the Week for the fourth time this season earlier this week. … Freshman center Cody Bradley returned to the Tigers’ lineup Friday night after missing six games with what CC coach Scott Owens called an “upper body” injury. Bradley had three assists in five games heading into Friday night.
