STORRS, Conn. (AP) _ Gay and play hockey?

You’re welcome at the University of Connecticut.

That is the message the school’s men’s hockey team is sending out in two videos for a program called “You Can Play.”

The goal of the international initiative, which was launched in March, is to work to end homophobia in hockey.

In them, the players pledge to support “any teammate, gay or straight, that can help us win games.”
