College hockey returns to CPTV Sports Sunday Dec. 28 with the championship game of the 2014 Frozen Holiday Classic LIVE on-air and online from the Webster Bank Arena in Bridgeport.

UConn will meet Hockey East rival UMass Lowell in the championship game at 6 p.m. Union College defeated Sacred Heart 3-1 in the consolation game. UConn defeated defending national champion Union 3-2 Saturday, after UMass Lowell’s 5-1 win over Sacred Heart.

UConn, in its first season in Hockey East, is 4-8-4 and UMass-Lowell 11-3-3. Sacred Heart is 5-11-2, Union 10-7-1.

“College hockey, especially in the state of Connecticut, has truly grown by leaps and bounds over the past few years,” Harbor Yard president Howard Saffan said last April when the event was announced. “The Frozen Hockey Classic will unify these outstanding schools that play college hockey in our area, and we’re happy to support and facilitate such an opportunity.”

Next year, 2013 NCAA champion Yale will join the two other Connecticut teams in the second Frozen Classic.

“We’re excited to be a part of the ever-growing landscape of college hockey in the state of Connecticut and feel that this event will contribute to its growth exponentially,” Saffan said. “As you can tell, we are bullish on Connecticut hockey.”
