NEW HAVEN, Conn. - A busy weekend at Ingalls Rink concluded Sunday with Yale Hockey's annual "Skate with the Players". Members of the Yale men's and women's hockey teams took time to skate with young fans and sign autographs, filling the ice at Ingalls for more than an hour.

Dozens of local youth hockey players took part in the annual event. The Yale women's team was joined by Giana, the 10-year-old that the Bulldogs "adopted" as a teammate last year after she had surgery for a brain tumor at Yale-New Haven Hospital.
