“It was so much fun, and I kept looking up and saying, ‘I can’t believe that’s all the time that’s left,’ It was great coming to Connecticut at an outdoor rink with guys you looked up to and played with and against as you were growing up.”
On February 19, 2011, a record 21,673 fans braved the bone-chilling cold to witness the most significant hockey event in Connecticut history – an outdoor pro hockey spectacular at Rentschler Field, the home of the UConn Huskies.
The main event featured an exciting AHL match-up between the newly-rebranded Connecticut Whale and their arch-rivals, the Providence Bruins. A wild regulation culminated in a shootout, a fitting end to the most monumental outdoor hockey event in Connecticut history.
The opening event featured a nostalgic tilt between Boston Bruins and Hartford Whalers alumni teams, as well as celebrities and the famous Hanson Brothers from “Slap Shot”.
More than hockey…this is history!
This limited edition commemorative DVD contains edited versions of both games plus special interviews with Whalers players and more!
