Support Men's Hockey!

A fundraising campaign for Canisius College

Help Men's Hockey score big in 2018-19!

The 2017-18 campaign was a remarkable chapter in the history books for Men's Hockey! The team finished the season with a 17-11-0 mark in conference play, and advanced to the semifinals of the Atlantic Hockey Tournament for the fifth time in six seasons. The team saw three victories against nationally-ranked opponents, highlighted by a home-and-home sweep of rival Niagara. In addition, Dylan McLaughlin '19 was named a Hobey Baker Memorial Award Top Ten Finalist, becoming the second player in program history to be named a finalist for this prestigious award. He was also named Atlantic Hockey Conference Player of the Year. And, former captain Ryan Schmelzer '18 is the second player from the 2017-18 roster who took part in a NHL development camp this summer. 

Our fans and supporters made it possible for the team to accomplish all that we did in 2017-18. The current season is underway and the team is hungry for more!

All of our successes last year  were possible because of the donors and fans who supported the program last year, helping to provide the resources our team needed to excel on the ice and in the classroom. 

Your gift in support of this campaign will:

  • Provide the resources we need to add a player recovery/fueling station at the Harbor Center;
  • Improve and update our locker room graphics to allow us to continue to tell the story of the history and tradition of Golden Griffin Ice Hockey.
