The Beast Series and some select teams from outside of the fall midget league will be in the New Haven, Conn., area this weekend for the Yale Jamboree.
Run by Jon Bellonio and Steve Novodor of Yale Midget Hockey, the Yale Jamboree will take place Friday to Sunday at the following rinks: Northford Ice Pavilion in Northford, Conn.; Yale University’s Ingalls Rink in New Haven, Conn.; Wesleyan’s Snyder Rink in Middletown, Conn.; and Westminster School’s Jackson Rink in Simsbury, Conn.
For those unfamiliar with these Connecticut rinks, Ingalls Rink on Yale’s campus is a beautiful, old-school barn affectionately referred to as "The Whale" by many around college hockey. Westy’s Jackson Rink is a great, iconic prep rink. Northford Ice Pavilion is the old home of Sacred Heart University before the program moved its home games to the Webster Bank Arena in Bridgeport, Conn.
