HAMDEN, Conn. – The 10th Annual Heroes Hat game will be played on Saturday, Feb. 25 when men's ice hockey hosts Yale at 7 p.m. at High Point Solutions Arena at the TD Bank Sports Center. The game will also be aired live on SportsNet New York (SNY) in High Definition.
The 10th Annual Heroes Hat game between Quinnipiac and Yale is set for a 7 p.m. start at High Point Solutions Arena. Quinnipiac won the first eight Heroes Hat before Yale won last season's match-up. The presentation of the Heroes Hat will take place following the game. The Heroes Hat was established in honor of those who risked or lost their lives following the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. It remembers Joseph Mascali (FDNY/Staten Island 5), father of former Quinnipiac golfer Chris Mascali '05, Jennifer Mascali '02 and current sophomore Katie Mascali '14.
The Heroes Hat was originally presented to the winner of the Quinnipiac and UConn season series during its first four years from 2001-02 to 2004-05. The award was not presented during the 2005-06 season after Quinnipiac moved from Atlantic Hockey to ECAC Hockey. The Heroes Hat was revived the following year after bringing together new ECAC Hockey rivals, Quinnipiac and Yale.
Bobcat fans attending the game are encouraged to bring a hat to donate to Don's Hat Rack. Don's Hat Rack was created in 1999 in memory of Donald Perrotti who lost his battle to cancer. The hat rack is located in Yale New Haven Children's Hospital where Don spent 6 years of his life.
