Final Home Hockey Games of 2016 Are This Weekend

Here’s your final chance to enjoy Canisius hockey before the calendar flips to 2017. On Friday, December 2 and Saturday, December 3, your Griffs host Bentley at 7:35 p.m. in the HARBORCENTER. Canisius is still fighting for first place at the conclusion of the semester. The Griffs sit two points out of the top spot with games in-hand against all three teams ahead of them in the standings.

Remember, Saturday is the Pearl Street Faculty-Staff Night with Canisius employees receiving up to four free tickets by showing their ID. Attendees will also have a chance to win vouchers to Pearl Street Grill and Brewery. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
