Face Off

BUFFALO, NY - The Canisius hockey team debuts its new home at HARBORCENTER on October 31, when the Golden Griffins face off against Ohio State. 

As the primary tenant of the $172 million hockey and entertainment complex, Canisius will play all its home games on HARBORCENTER’s feature rink, which holds a capacity crowd of 1,800.  The state-of-the-art complex also serves as the program’s full-time practice facility, gives the Griffs access to the center’s high-performance training center and houses the team’s permanent locker room, which includes a student-athlete lounge, a coaches’ suite and the team’s athletic training facility. 

The $250,000 space has been made possible by the generous support of Blue and Gold Fund members Martin J. Berardi  ’80; John A. Christiano ’57; Nelson D. Civello ’67; Cory D.  Conacher ’11; Mark J. Grundtisch (Holiday Twin Rinks); The Knee Center of Western New York; The NOCO Foundation; and Towne Automotive Group.
