UConn goaltender Adam Huska will be out indefinitely with what the team said is a wrist injury.

Providence played UConn on Thursday night, and according to the radio broadcast, Huska injured his wrist on Monday; the injury was not sustained the ice.

“The wrist has to be immobilized for at least 10 days to two weeks,” UConn head coach Mike Cavanaugh said. “The doctor will take [the brace] off after that and we’ll see where it’s at. If he’s pain tolerant, they will put a little splint on it and he should be OK, according to the doctor.”

Huska has appeared in 25 games for UConn this season, posting a 2.52 goals-against average and a .914 save percentage; however, in his last 11 games, Huska has posted a .936 save percentage and a 1.85 GAA.

Tanner Creel is expected to start in Huska’s absence.
