Bulldogs Travel to Quinnipiac, Princeton

NEW HAVEN, Conn. - After opening 2018 with a non-conference win over the Quinnipiac Bobcats, the Yale Bulldogs head back into ECAC play on Friday and Saturday. Yale hits the road to play at Quinnipiac and against the Princeton Tigers as the Bulldogs looks to climb the conference standings.

Yale currently sits a mere four points out of a playoff spot in the ECAC standings. Both games this weekend loom large, especially with Princeton sitting in the seventh seed ahead of Yale, currently in tenth.

The Bulldogs are coming off a big 1-0 win over Quinnipiac, with Tera Hofmann making 37 saves for her first shutout of the season. Emma Vlasic scored shorthanded on a feed from Greta Skarzynski, the first shorthanded goal of the season for the Bulldogs.

The Bulldogs and Bobcats have faced off twice already this season, with Yale going 1-0-1 so far. The two sides play again Friday as well as in the final game of the regular season on February 17th.

Yale has yet to play Princeton this season, and will host the Tigers in the final weekend of the regular season, on February 16th.

Skarzynski leads the Bulldogs in points with 16 in 17 games, featuring eight goals and assists apiece. The first year forward is tied for 15th in the ECAC in points despite playing the second fewest games of anyone ranked in the top 25 players. Mallory Souliotis leads Yale defenders with 12 points, including a team high 11 assists.
