The Hartford Wolf Pack today announced its 2010 preseason schedule. The team will play a total of five games, with three of them being home games, played at Trinity College in Hartford, Quinnipiac University in Hamden, CT and Champions Skating Center in Cromwell, CT.
The Wolf Pack’s first preseason action is Thursday, September 23 against the new Albany Devils.
