One of the games postponed earlier this year between the Premier Hockey Federation’s Connecticut Whale and Buffalo Beauts will be played in Simsbury at the International Skating Center in January.

Two games between Buffalo and Connecticut on the weekend of Nov. 19-20 were postponed because of a blizzard in Buffalo that made it treacherous for the Beauts to travel.

The Whale will face the Beauts on Wednesday, Jan. 18, at 7:30 p.m. in Simsbury and on Tuesday, Jan. 17, at 7 p.m. at the Milford Ice Pavilion, where the Whale practices. Both games were originally scheduled to be played in Milford.

The game in Simsbury will be available on ESPN Plus and normal affiliates. The game in Milford will be streamed free on

It will make for a busy week for Connecticut, which will play in Pittsburgh on Saturday, Jan. 14 against Montreal in a neutral site game and then travel to Toronto to face the Six on Saturday, Jan. 21.

The Beauts will have six games in a span of eight days with two games against Boston on Jan. 13-14 on the road, the two weekday games at Connecticut and two games against Metropolitan on Jan. 21-22 in Buffalo.
