The Connecticut Huskies men's ice hockey team is a National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I college ice hockey program that represents the University of Connecticut. The Huskies are a member of Atlantic Hockey. They play at the Mark Edward Freitas Ice Forum in Storrs, Connecticut.
The Huskies upgraded to Division I Status in 1998 after playing for 38 years at lower levels of NCAA Hockey.  At the time, head coach Bruce Marshall was in his tenth season at the position. After posting winning records in their first two seasons at the highest level, the Huskies started to struggle, and as of the 2010-11 season, have not since had a winning record.  The athletic department was forced to remove all athletic scholarships from the sport in order to comply with Title IX,  and the Huskies consistently finished in the bottom few spots of the national computer rankings . In the 2010-11 season, the Huskies showed some improvement, advancing to the Atlantic Hockey semifinals at Blue Cross Arena before being eliminated. The 2011-12 AHA preseason rankings reflected the newly gained reputation, with the Huskies ranked fifth out of twelve teams.
In June 2010, the University announced that the team would face Sacred Heart at Rentschler Field in East Hartford on February 13, 2011, as part of a doubleheader also featuring a game between the women's team and the Providence Friars.  The Huskies won this game 3-1, in front of 1,711 fans. The Huskies would go on to have one of their better seasons in recent memory, finishing 16-18-4 and advancing to the semifinals of the 2011 Atlantic Hockey Tournament.
