  • Chris MacKenzie completed his sixth season in charge of the UConn women's ice hockey program in 2018-19. He was named the second head coach in Husky program history in May of 2013. A veteran of the collegiate coaching ranks, MacKenzie has experience in both the women's and men's sides of the sport.
  • In the 2017-18 season, MacKenzie led UConn to the most improbable postseason run in program history, taking a team that sat in last place in Hockey East on Jan. 26 all the way to the league championship game on March 4 at Matthews Arena. The Huskies upset No. 3 Boston College in the WHEA semifinals on March 3, finishing the season at 16-14-9 with a 2-1 loss to Northeastern in the title game.
  • Senior goalie Annie Belanger was named WHEA Goaltender of the Year under MacKenzie, while Leah Lum won the Sportsmanship Award, Briana Colangelo the Best Defense Forward honor and Natalie Snodgrass a place on the Pro Ambitions All-Rookie Team. UConn won six games against nationally-ranked opponents throughout the season.
  • MacKenzie helped the Huskies to their first winning record since 2009-10 and a second-straight WHEA postseason appearance in the 2015-16 season. UConn finished fourth in the league after the regular season and earned hosting rights for the WHEA quarterfinals. The Huskies capped off their 2015-16 season in the Hockey East semifinals where they fell for the second consecutive year to conference front-runner Boston College.
  • The team boasted an All-American in the 2015-16 season when Elaine Chuli earned All-America Second Team honors. An impressive 11 players were named to the Hockey East All-Academic Team for the second-consecutive season.

  • The Huskies reached the Hockey East championship game for the third time in program history during the 2017-18 campaign, including an upset win over No. 3 Boston College in the semifinals. Handrahan helped UConn in its late-season run, going 9-3-1 in its last 13 games.
  • Handrahan helped the Huskies reach the WHEA Tournament semifinals for the first time in five years in 2014-15, as UConn won a WHEA playoff series at Maine before making the trip to Hyannis for the first time since 2010.

He also helped to mentor goaltender Elaine Chuli to her second-straight WHEA Honorable Mention All Star nod.
  • During his first year in Storrs in 2013-14, the Huskies posted a six-win improvement from the previous season. In addition to primary responsibilities with the UConn defensemen, Handrahan spearheaded a special teams unit that ranked as high as No. 2 in the nation in penalty kill during the season.
