On Connecticut Ice...
"The one thing I noticed right away with Connecticut is it's such a small state and there's four Division I programs. There's so much talent, and there's such a fun environment up here that I feel like you can always do more," Cotton said. "So finally that we have this tournament I think it's going to draw more people in to watch hockey and be more involved in college hockey."
