The Canisius Hockey team took home the 2023 Atlantic Hockey Championship this past Saturday night, defeating No. 7 seed Holy Cross in a 3-0 victory.

Canisius graduate student Nick Bowman scored the game-winning goal at the 17:59 mark of the second period and senior goaltender Jacob Barczewski recorded a 24-save shutout to help lead the fourth-seeded Canisius hockey team to its win in front of 1,805 fans at the LECOM Harborcenter.

The championship is the program’s second conference title and first since 2013, and gives the Golden Griffins (19-18-3) an automatic berth into next weekend’s NCAA Division I Men’s Ice Hockey Championship.

Canisius now heads to Fargo, ND, to face off against No. 1 Minnesota in the NCAA Regional.  Game time is set for 9:00 p.m. (ET) Thursday.
