We all know Buffalo is a hockey town and that Western New York embraces the sport like no other place in the country. Hockey is what we live, sleep, eat and breathe.

As a member of the Canisius community, have you given yourself the opportunity to enjoy the game at the collegiate level? Does being part of a program that moved to the national level last year and will be playing in a new, downtown arena next year just make you sooooo excited you can’t wait for the first puck to drop?

If so, the Griffs are waiting for you to head to the rink and enjoy the sport as you may not have seen it. It’s fast, really fast. The hits are hard and Canisius, under Coach Dave Smith, plays even harder.

Did you know Canisius ranked 19th in the country last year after making it’s first NCAA Tournament appearance? Did you know the national leader in saves wore a Griffin on his sweater? His name is Tony Capobianco and he’s back for another year. In addition, the country’s 12th-ranked scorer, Kyle Gibbons, also returns.

What’s really neat is that the team plays 15 home games and you can see ALL of those games for $75.00! Not each game, but ALL of them!! And, when you buy your season tickets for this season, you will receive priority to purchase your ticket next year at the brand new HARBORcenter at a price less than will be offered to those who do not take advantage of this fabulous opportunity.

To order, visit and then buckle your seat belts as the Griffs take off on another wild ride. For additional information, call 716-888-2885.
