Key Games

2/18 vs Bellarmine: The Golden Griffins’ home opener will come against the Bellarmine Knights on February 18th. Last spring, Canisius hot the road to face the Knights and won a 13-11 contest that saw Colin Kelly put up four goals. Another close contest between these two should be expected.

3/25 @ Manhattan: Canisius will visit the defending MAAC champion Manhattan Jaspers on March 25th. Canisius will be looking to defeated the Jaspers for the first time since 2018 as the Griffins have a four-game losing streak against Manhattan. Last spring, Manhattan won the contest 14-11.

3/29 vs Siena: Another one of the Golden Griffins’ two wins last season, they knocked off Siena in a one-goal, 9-8 contest that saw them never trail. With how close the MAAC can be, expect a tight one again between these conference foes. And it could very well have postseason implications.
