The dates for the CIAC hockey state championship games have been changed.
The decision was made this week to avoid potential conflicts at Yale’s Ingalls Rink, according to the CIAC.
Yale competes in ECAC Hockey. The quarterfinal series for ECAC Hockey are scheduled for March 15-17. Yale is presently second in the ECAC standings. The top four seeds play host to best-of-three series.
Yale is also playing host to the Ivy League men’s and women’s basketball tournaments at Payne Whitney on March 16-17, which could have caused parking issues.
The updated schedule is as follows, with both semifinals and championship games being held at Ingalls:
Semifinals: Monday, March 11, 5:30/7:30 p.m.
Final: Thursday, March 14, 7 p.m.
Semifinals: Tuesday, March 12, 5:30/7:30 p.m.
Final: Monday, March 18, 7 p.m.
Semifinals: Wednesday, March 13, 5:30/7:30 p.m.
Final: Tuesday, March 19, 7 p.m.
