Ten Colorado College hockey players joined with student-athletes from the men’s basketball and women’s soccer teams to support the You Can Play Project through the public service announcement videos seen at World Arena. More CC athletes are expected to sign on soon.

You Can Play attempts to open doors for gay and lesbian athletes to participate in sports and be accepted for their skills and work ethic like any other teammate.

There is a strong hockey connection after Brendan Burke acknowledged he was gay while serving as the student manager of the Miami team.

Players from 40 professional teams and dozens of colleges have made videos.

The hockey players who took part are: Mike Boivin, Cody Bradley, Jordan DiGiando, Russell Finch, Alexander Krushelnyski, Courtney Lockwood, Joe Marciano, Peter Maric, Josh Thorimbert and Scott Winkler.

Skate with CC on Sunday

The free Skate with the Tigers event is scheduled for noon to 1:30 pm Sunday at the Sertich Ice Center when the entire CC hockey team meets fans, who can get autographs and take pictures with the Tigers. Skate rental is available.

Senior Rylan Schwartz’s goal and two assists Friday came in his 12th multi-point game this season. His goal in the first period Saturday put him at 145 points (93 assists) and tied him for 32nd place on the CC all-time list with Mike Bertsch (1969-73) and Chad Remackel (1992-96). He scored again later to move to 32nd place alone at 146 points. … About 400 boy and girl scouts came early for a hockey skills demonstration led by the idle CC players.
