University of Connecticut hockey team recruiting and supporting gay players

Gay and play hockey? You’re welcome at the University of Connecticut. That is the message UConn’s men’s hockey team is delivering in two videos titled, You Can Play. The goal of the international initiative is to work to end homophobia in hockey.

“We thought it was a great idea to show the community how we feel about homosexuality in sports, and let people know that anyone can play on our team,” said UConn captain Sean Ambrosie.
