With the regular season coming to a close this weekend, the Canisius hockey team will take time out Friday (February 24) to honor two departing seniors. Dan Morrison and Scott Moser (pictured, right) will don the pads for their final regular season appearance when the Griffs host Mercyhurt at 7 p.m. in the Buffalo State Sports Arena.
Potentially, it’s a big series for Canisius. Griff wins Friday at home and Saturday (February 25) at Mercyhurst, coupled with a pair of defeats by a struggling U/Conn team against AIC, would provide the Griffs with home ice advantage for the Atlantic Hockey playoffs.
For additional information on senior night and to follow the Griffs progress this weekend, visit www.gogriffs.com.
