Cory Conacher ‘11, the program’s all-time leading scorer, turned heads in preseason camp with the Tampa Bay Lightning, scoring a goal in his first preseason game while on a line with Martin St. Louis and Steven Stamkos.

 oing to school at G Canisius and having the opportunity to play with all the great players over my four years helped me a great deal and I owe a lot to them.

Carl Hudson ‘10 became the first Griff to sign with an NHL team, inking with the Florida Panthers after the 2009-10 campaign

“I learned so much from everybody at Canisius and I’d like to thank everyone that has helped me during my four years. Coach Smith and Coach Mankowski gave me a tremendous opportunity to play and I thank them so much for everything that the two of them plus Coach Adams have taught me. My teammates at Canisius were one of a kind and I wouldn’t be in the position I am today without the help from them. “ - Cory Conacher

First Class Facilities


Atlantic Hockey A new chapter in the history of college hockey was ushered into existence when the Atlantic Hockey Association was created on June 30, 2003, by nine charter members. The sixth Division I men’s ice hockey conference arose when the founding members - American International, Bentley, Canisius, Connecticut, Holy Cross, Mercyhurst, Quinnipiac, Sacred Heart, and the United States Military Academy (Army) required an organization that represented their specific hockey needs. Now in its ninth year of existence, Atlantic Hockey members are known throughout the NCAA landscape. The league enjoyed unprecedented success during the 2009-10 season when RIT won its first tournament title and earned its first bid to the NCAA Tournament. The Tigers then proceeded to win the East Regional, defeating No. 1 seed Denver, 2-1, and third-seeded New Hampshire, 6-2, to earn a trip to the Ford Field in Detroit, Mich. for the Frozen Four. In the national semifinal contest, the Tigers fell to Wisconsin. The Atlantic Hockey members showed their promise right from the start. Holy Cross earned the league’s NCAA Tournament berth in 2004 and 2006, while Mercyhurst claimed the crown in 2005. The Crusaders became the first team in league history to win an NCAA Tournament game by defeating No. 1 seed Minnesota in overtime on March 24, 2006. The league continued to evolve with the start of the 2006-07 season, welcoming two new members – Air Force and RIT. With the departure of Quinnipiac, the league membership rose to 10. The Falcons had immediate success in the league, winning three-straight Atlantic Hockey Championships and representing the league in the NCAA Tournament. In 2009, Air Force defeated perennial-power Michigan, 2-0, before narrowly missing a bid to the Frozen Four with a 3-2 double-overtime defeat to Vermont. In addition, Air Force’s Eric Ehn became the first Atlantic Hockey player to be named a Hobey Hat Trick finalist in 2007. Another jump in membership happened at the start of the 2010-11 season, as Niagara and Robert Morris joined Atlantic Hockey to increase the league to 12 teams.

Department of Athletics What is a Griffin? The Griffin is a mythical creature of supposed gigantic size that has the head, forelegs and wings of an eagle and the hindquarters, tail and ears of a lion. They are well known for their speed, ability to fly and having eyes like an eagle as well as the strength and courage of a lion. Griffins have been known for centuries as symbols of strength and vigilance, have been called “The Hounds of Zeus” in Greek mythology and are said to have mastery of both the land and sky. They are thought to be from India, where the natives of the land made their talons and claws into drinking cups because the talon of a Griffin was said to detect poison in a liquid. Griffins would find gold in the mountains and line their nests with it and as a result, were forced to become great guardians of the nests to keep the hunters away. According to Charles A. Brady in Canisius College The First Hundred Years, “Though the problems of when and where the Griffin began his reign as King Herald of the Canisius College of Arms are not easily settled, the whence is simple to establish. Our Griffin flew to us from the prow of LaSalle’s lost Griffon, the Flying Dutchman of the Great Lakes, which disappeared after making a safe voyage from the Niagara River to the Strait of Detroit. LaSalle’s illfated caravel, the first ship ever built on America’s inland seas, with its 45 tons and five cannons, had its beakhead adorned ‘with a flying Griffin, and an eagle above it,’ in honor of the two heraldic beasts on the armorial bearing of the great Frontenac.” The Griffin became the symbol for Canisius athletics in the mid-1930s. Steve Weller wrote in The Buffalo News Jan. 22, 1962, “You can have your Chihuahuas, Piranhas, Horned Frogs and Iguanas. The best all-around athletic mascot in business today has to be the beast adopted by Canisius College – the Golden Griffin.”


2011 Canisius Male Athlete of the Year Cory Conacher finished his career with 12 school records, including the program’s career points and goals standards. Maura Frauenhofer placed second at the 2010 MAAC Championship, the highest finish by a Griff since 1997.

GOLDEN GRIFFIN ICE HOCKEY

2011-12 SEASON PREVIEW

A team captain in 2011-12, junior Preston Shupe is the team’s active leader in career points with 49.

The common theme for the 2011-12 Canisius College hockey team will be a new-look Golden Griffin program. Gone are 10 seniors from the 2010-11 squad, including the top two scorers in the program’s history. In addition, 12 players in the last two seniors classes are now playing professional hockey. While the personnel might have changed, the goals of winning an Atlantic Hockey championship do not. “Our team goals never change,” said Canisius College head coach Dave Smith. “To start – because of the new playoff format – the top four teams are rewarded with a bye in the first round and the next four are rewarded with home ice in the playoffs. Therefore, finishing as high as we can is an important goal for us so we can put ourselves in the best position for our ultimate goal and that is a conference title.

“With Scott, we have a player that has evolved over his four years here as a leader not only with our program but also on campus,” Smith said. “He makes great decisions and works as hard as anybody. Preston is another captain that mirrors Scott but is just a year behind in school. Together, those players are great communicators. They both want the best things for Canisius College hockey.”

Goaltenders While a number of newcomers will fill out the roster during the 201112 campaign, the goaltending position is one place the Griffs can point toward that features a lot of experience.

“Because we have such a young team, our goals of winning don’t change but our goals of development take a higher priority early in the season.”

Canisius returns both of its goaltenders from the 2010-11 season in seniors Dan Morrison and Tony Capobianco. Morrison is a three-year starter for the Griffs and enters his final season just 465 saves shy of the program’s record. Capobianco added depth to the unit as a rookie and will compete for even more playing time with a year of experience under his belt.

Of the 26 players on the 2011-12 roster, only six are upperclassmen (two seniors and four juniors). Nearly half of the roster is freshmen with 12 newcomers on the team, tied for the largest freshman class in the country with Mercyhurst and Ohio State.

“Our goaltending is the first strength of our team,” Smith said. “We are in a very good situation with a number of capable players with a lot experience. From a three-year starter to a player coming off a strong rookie season to a talented freshmen, I really like what we have in net.”

While the talent is evident throughout the classes, the key for Canisius will be to build the needed chemistry and have the players perform to their potential to overcome their lack of college experience.

Dan Morrison, Sr • 31gp, 3.57 gaa, .904 sv pct “Dan is a returning senior who has played a lot of key minutes and key games over his career for us,” Smith said. “He has shown the league that he is an outstanding goaltender and I expect that to continue during his senior season.”

“We have a number of players that are going to be put into situations that they were recruited for but it might be earlier than anticipated,” Smith said. “Our young players are going to have an opportunity to play and show how talented they are. It is important for our team that we get better not only each week but each day so that we our playing our best hockey in January, February and March.” Two players who will be expected to help the younger players transition to the Division I level are captains Scott Moser and Preston Shupe.

Tony Capobianco, So • 11gp, 2.80 gaa, .922 sv pct “Tony is going to challenge Dan for playing time this season,” Smith said. “He had a terrific freshman year and is poised to push the goaltending situation as far he can.” Keegan Asmundson, Fr, Austin Bruins (NAHL) “Keegan has great size at 6-5,” Smith said. “ He is extremely athletic and takes up a lot of the net. He rounds out the position very nicely.”


GOLDEN GRIFFIN ICE HOCKEY

2011-12 SEASON PREVIEW

Defenders Playing in front of the goaltenders is a relatively young defensive unit. The Griffs return two standouts from the 2010-11 team in junior Ben Parker and sophomore Ben Danford, as well junior Chris Barrea and sophomore Duncan McKellar. The four returners will compete with four newcomers to form a unit that features a lot of size and skill and unlike last season, hopes to take advantage by just staying healthy. “The first noticeable thing with our defense is our size,” Smith said. “We have added a lot of size in both our incoming freshmen and having Duncan McKellar move back to the point. Having lost so many man games to injury last season, we believe that we have eight players that can step into any situation and play.

Mackenzie Scott, Fr, Orangeville Flyers (OJHL) “Mackenzie brings a lot of quickness, size and skill to our program,” Smith said. “He also has such a positive attitude and we can envision a lot of improvement from him over the season.”

Forwards The first question for the Griffs on the forward line is how to replace the top two scorers in the program’s history in graduates Cory Conacher and Vincent Scarsella? The answer for this season is to provide more scoring options with improved depth and create chemistry between the lines by adding seven freshmen to the roster.

“The freshmen will be thrown into the fire early and we will take it from there. As a group, we have good puck movers and players that take a lot of pride in defense. We have a unit that features excellent team players who understand their role as a defensemen on our team.”

“Cory and Vince are irreplaceable players,” Smith said. “Not only with their point production but also the energy and enthusiasm that they showed coming to the rink every day. They both had a huge impact on our program.

A total of 57 games were missed during the 2010-11 season due to injury and Canisius was forced to dress fewer than six defenders in 18 contests, leading to an inconsistent back line.

“I see us as being a really deep team this year to overcome that loss. Every forward can play for us this year and most can play multiple positions. We are going to need to find and develop some chemistry because we have seven new freshmen. The strength of our unit will be our team speed up front and we hope to take advantage of that.”

Danford was a bright spot on the blue line during his rookie season, setting the team’s record for points by a freshman defender (26) and assists by a defender (24). In addition, Parker led all Griffs with a plus/ minus rating of +6 despite missing 15 contests, while McKellar looked strong in the second half of the season after switching positions from forward. Chris Barrea, Jr • 6gp, 0-0—0, -5, 4 PIM “Chris came into camp in great shape and he is going to get an opportunity to show what he has on a more consistent basis,” Smith said. “He has great stick skills and is a strong defender for us.”

The team’s top two scorers in each of the last two seasons, Conacher and Scarsella combined to record 172 points since the beginning of the 2009-10 campaign before graduating as the program’s top two all-time scorers with 147 and 133 points, respectively. Moser and Shupe are now the top leading returners with 49 career points each. A number of options are available to offset the losses, starting with the experience of Moser and Shupe. Moser set a career high with 21 points last season, while Shupe is on pace to become the eighth member of the program’s 100-point club with two more healthy seasons.

Ben Parker, Jr • 23gp, 0-5—5, +6, 12 PIM “Ben is a steady, stay-at-home defender who can move the puck,” Smith said. “He has high energy and is going to be one of our leaders on the blue line.” Ben Danford, So • 38gp, 2-24—26, -5, 37 PIM “Ben is going to be counted on to be a stud in every situation for us,” Smith said. “He is going to log a lot of ice time and will be a great resource for the freshman defenders. Ben has come back in excellent shape and he is ready to go. I’m excited to watch Ben Danford play this season.” Duncan McKellar, So • 14gp, 0-1—1, +1, 10 PIM “Duncan has great mobility, great vision and is a very good passer,” Smith said. “The plan is to use his strengths and to have him be a solid defensemen after making the transition from forward.” Stephen Farrell, Fr, Pembroke Lumber Kings (CJHL) “Stephen is a very smart puck mover,” Smith said. “He sees the ice very well and has the ability to get the puck off his stick and on to somebody else’s stick under pressure.” Doug Jessey, Fr, Woodstock Slammers (MHL) “Doug is a tough and physical defensemen with an excellent shot,” Smith said. “He can really hammer the puck and we hope to take advantage of that this year.” Logan Roe, Fr, Kent School “Logan comes from a great program at the Kent School and he was a big reason for their success,” Smith said. “We expect him to continue in his role as a defensive defensemen who can move the puck and provide some offense.”

The team’s anchor on defense, Ben Danford set the program’s record for scoring by a defender last season with 26 points.

I think if he were to let loose, that he could take his game to the next level.” Preston Shupe, Jr • 32gp, 10-14—24, -2, 14 PIM “Preston is going to move to the middle, which I think well free him up a little more offensively,” Smith said. “He is so responsibly defensively that you can put him with anybody.” Ryan Bohrer, So • 37gp, 5-7—12, -11, 22 PIM “Ryan is very committed and very fast on the ice,” Smith said. “He is very focused and a driven hockey player who I am excited to see play in his second year.

HEAD COACH DAVE SMITH

Dave Smith

Head Coach • Seventh Season • The Ohio State University ‘92

Dave Smith is in his seventh season as head coach of the Canisius College hockey program and 14th season as a coach at the Division I level. Smith has continued to raise the bar while leading the Golden Griffin program. Most recently, Smith has mentored two of the most successful classes in the school’s history in addition to new found success on the ice. The senior classes of 2010 and 2011 – Smith’s first two recruiting classes – have rewritten the program’s record book, while earning a number of historic wins. During the 2009-10 campaign, Smith led Canisius to one of its most successful seasons with the team earning its most victories in nine years. The Griffs also progressed to the Atlantic Hockey Semifinals for the first time since the 2003-04 campaign. In 2010-11, Canisius advanced in the league’s tournament for the second-straight season – a first for the program – with a convincing win over rival Niagara, 6-3. On an individual level, Cory Conacher became the first player in the program’s history to garner Atlantic Hockey Player of the Year accolades in 2010 after setting a school record with 53 points and ranking second nationally in points per game. Conacher, who was also named to the Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award All-America First Team in 2011, graduated from Canisius the following year with 12 school records to his name, including career points and goals. Following the 2010-11 campaign, Conacher also joined former teammate and 2010 graduate Carl Hudson as the only two-time all-conference selections in the program’s history. Hudson became the first Griff to sign with a NHL team after his graduation when the Canisius standout joined the Florida Panthers, while Conacher signed with the Norfolk Admirals of the AHL following the completion of his collegiate career. The achievements under Smith are not limited to just the past two years. In his first six seasons leading the Golden Griffin program, he has guided numerous student-athletes to success both on and off the ice. The Griffs have collected athletic and academic honors as well as enjoying successful careers after graduation. The highlights include: • A total of 19 Griffs have signed professional contracts after playing under Smith at Canisius, highlighted by 12 members of his first two recruiting classes in 2010 and 2011. • Smith has mentored three student-athletes who have earned individual postseason awards. Conacher highlights the honorees with his Player of the Year accolade, while David Kasch earned the league’s Best Defensive Forward following the 2007-08 season and Dave Kostuch was named the Rookie of the Year in 2008-09.

Conacher Picks Up Where He Left Off

Griffs Win OT Thriller vs. Ranked RMU

Senior Cory Conacher picked up right where he left off during his junior campaign, netting the program’s 11th hat trick in the season opener against Western Michigan.

In Canisius and Robert Morris’ first meeting as Atlantic Hockey opponents, the Griffs came out on top against the nationally-ranked Colonials.

A year after earning Atlantic Hockey Player of the Year accolades and ranking second nationally in scoring, Conacher tallied his second career hat trick to help the Griffs to a 5-3 victory against the Broncos. Western Michigan would finish the 2010-11 season ranked 13th nationally.

Scarsella Tallies 100th-Career Point Senior Vincent Scarsella also had a successful season debut, recording three assists in the Griffs’ 5-3 win against Western Michigan. With his three points, Scarsella became the seventh Griff — and the fourth in the last two seasons — to reach the 100-point plateau for his career.

Hot Start Earns Griffs Awards The early-season success went beyond Cory Conacher, Vincent Scarsella and the Western Michigan series. The Griffs began the campaign with a 4-1-1 record and 3-0-1 mark in league play — the best start in the program’s history. Thanks to the hot start, Canisius swept the Atlantic Hockey Monthly Awards for October. Conacher was named the league’s Player of the Month, Dan Morrison earned Goaltender of the Month accolades and Kyle Gibbons was selected as the Rookie of the Month.

Griffs Earn Votes in National Poll Following a strong start to the 2010-11 campaign, the Griffs started to turn heads among voters in the USCHO.com coaches poll. Canisius received as many as 10 votes in the national poll — the most in the program’s history — and earned at least one vote in four weeks.

Bonus Hockey Canisius rewarded its fans with a lot of extra hockey during the 2010-11 campaign. Canisius ranked among the national leaders with 12 overtime contests, one shy of the school record set in 2003-04. The Griffs finished with a 3-3-6 record in overtime games during the season.

60 | 2011-12 CANISIUS COLLEGE HOCKEY MEDIA GUIDE

Kyle Gibbons netted a goal 3:59 into overtime to give Canisius a 3-2 victory against the 20th-ranked Colonials. The Griffs, who also swept a pair of games against No. 15 Air Force in 2009, won their third-straight game when playing a ranked foe.

Rookie Rewards The two key pieces in Canisius’ 3-2 overtime victory against the ranked Colonials were freshmen forward Kyle Gibbons and goaltender Tony Capobianco, a common theme for the Griffs during the 2010-11 season. A team that featured 10 freshmen on the roster, Canisius had a league-best five Rookie of the Week selections during the season. Capobianco, who earned his first collegiate victory against Robert Morris, earned the honor once, while Gibbons and defender Ben Danford each picked up the accolade on two occasions.

A Freshman Leader in Danford Ben Danford wasted no time taking the lead on the blue line for the Griffs. During his freshman campaign, Danford set program records for assists by defender (24) and points by a rookie blueliner (26). Danford finished the season ranked fourth nationally among freshmen defensemen with 0.68 points per game and placed fourth among all Atlantic Hockey defenders with his 26 points.

A Night to Remember for Rauch While one Canisius defender was putting up big numbers during his rookie season, senior captain Phil Rauch waited patiently for his turn to shine. In his 118th career game at Canisius, Rauch netted his first collegiate tally on Jan. 24 in a win against AIC.

Rex Saves His Best for Last Senior Eric Rex enjoyed a career-best campaign in his final season as a Griff, setting career highs with 27 points, nine goals and 18 assists. Rex’s 27 points more than doubled his total from his first three seasons combined (13) and were more than four times his previous career high (6).

2010-11 SEASON REVIEW

Conacher Makes His Mark as All-Time Great

Morrison Saves the Day

Senior Cory Conacher continued his case as one of the best to wear the Blue and Gold, totaling 42 points, a school-record 23 goals and 19 assists. The highlights of the season, however, were setting the program’s career scoring marks.

Junior goaltender Dan Morrison also added his name to the program’s record book during the 2010-11 campaign.

The Burlington, Ontario native netted two goals against AIC on Jan. 23 to break the program’s goals record. Conacher finished his collegiate career with 62 tallies, 12 more than the previous standard of 50 set by former teammate Jason Weeks. Conacher then added the points record to his resume on Feb. 3, securing the mark in style. The senior netted his second hat trick of the season against Robert Morris to break the program’s points record. He finished with 147 points, surpassing Josh Heidinger’s former standard by 15. Conacher also finished with career marks in gamewinning goals (12) and hat tricks (3).

Canisius Tops Rival in AHA Playoffs The first chapter of the Canisius - Niagara rivalry as both members of Atlantic Hockey went to Canisius. In their first season as league rivals, the two neighboring schools met in the Atlantic Hockey First Round with Canisius earning a 6-3 victory. The Griffs dominated the second frame against the Purple Eagles, using a 4-0 period en route to the win. The win, coupled with the quarterfinal series victory in 2009-10, marked the first time in the program’s history that Canisius advanced in the Atlantic Hockey Tournament in consecutive seasons.

Gibbons Provides Drama in AHA Quarterfinals Freshman Kyle Gibbons helped prolong the Griffs’ season in the Atlantic Hockey Quarterfinals against Holy Cross.

Morrison finished the season with 993 stops, more than 100 saves more than the previous standard. He also was instrumental in helping the Griffs to two postseason victories, setting the program’s playoff saves mark in each win with 48 and 49 stops against Niagara and Holy Cross, respectively.

Seniors Scott Jenks, Phil Rauch, Eric Rex and Vincent Scarsella also signed professional contracts in various leagues.

After falling in the first game and facing a 2-1 deficit in dying seconds of an elimination game, Gibbons forced an extra session by scoring with 3.5 seconds remaining in regulation. The freshman then won the game with his second overtime score of the season, forcing a decisive third game. The Griffs once again overcame an early deficit in the third game, but Holy Cross scored two thirdperiod goals and added a pair of empty netters to eliminate Canisius.

Conacher Collects Postseason Honors For the second-straight season, Cory Conacher earned a number of postseason accolades. The senior was named to the All-Atlantic Hockey Second Team following the season, becoming just the second Griff to earn all-conference honors on two occasions (Carl Hudson).

Vincent Scarsella led the Griffs with eight points (4g, 4a) in four postseason games. He matched a career high and postseason record with two goals in the 6-3 win over rival Niagara.

Conacher was also honored as a first-team Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award All-American. After leading a national vote, Conacher was recognized with the award, which measures four areas of excellence — community, classroom, character and competition. In addition, Conacher was named the Canisius Male Student-Athlete of the Year for the secondstraight year as well as picking up Team MVP and Top Forward honors.

CANISIUS HISTORY The Club Years

The Canisius College hockey team has a rich tradition that began as the vision of one man and grew into a NCAA Division I program. Dr. David Dietz, professor of classics and the father of Canisius hockey, has seen it evolve from the first day of practice as a club team to the move from the ECAC West to its current place in the Atlantic Hockey Association.

The First Canisius Captains 1971-72: Mike Ross 1972-73: Bob Bauer 1973-74: Bob Bauer 1974-75: Gary Cutler 1975-76: Gary Cutler, Bob Wick 1976-77: Kevin Barnett, John Graziani 1977-78: John Graziani 1978-79: Mike Denz, Pete Elmer 1979-80: Joe Casacci, Mike Denz

Canisius hockey was born in fall 1971. In spring 1972, the club saw the true beginning of the program - its first win. The program went 6-2-0 and played a mix of intercollegiate and club teams.

In April 1973, Canisius was accepted into the Finger Lakes Collegiate Hockey League for play beginning in fall 1974. The FLCHL gave the Griffs the opportunity to play a consistent schedule against a mix of teams from Western and Central New York. The Griffs went 10-2-0 and finished first during the regular season in the inaugural season of the FLCHL (1973-74). The club hit its pinnacle during the 1974-75 season as the Griffs finished with a 15-2-0 record and defeated St. John Fisher in the league’s championship game, 7-0. Proving that the previous year was no fluke, Canisius took its second straight postseason crown by defeating the Geneseo Ice Knights, 5-2, for the FLCHL Championship. With great success during the previous two seasons, it was evident the Griffs were moving to another level. Seeing this, Dr. Dietz chose to step aside as the club team’s coach. That change came in the form of University at Buffalo graduate Mike Kelly. Kelly began coaching during the 1976-77 season. The Griffs finished 9-6-4, falling to Erie Community College in the league’s championship game. Kelly was named FLCHL Coach of the Year. Canisius met ECC in the 1977-78 FLCHL Championship game and were stymied by the Ice Kats for the second year in a row, 8-4. Canisius went 17-10-2 and won the 1978-79 FLCHL Championship with a 6-4 decision over Niagara-Welland in the league’s title game. Mike Denz was named tournament MVP. The 1979-80 ice hockey season ended an era in Canisius athletics as the club hockey team would lace up their skates for the last time before moving to varsity status. The Griffs concluded this chapter in Canisius history with a 5-4 victory over Mohawk College in the inaugural Championship of the International Collegiate Hockey League.

The Move to Division III The Griffs began Division III play with a new look. Brian Cavanaugh would take over the program and would lead the Griffs for 23 of the next 24 years. Canisius earned its first-ever NCAA victory on Nov. 22, 1980 with a 7-4 win over Niagara Welland and ended the season with a 13-12-2 record. Canisius continued its success in its second season of play, posting its second-straight winning season with a 16-12-1 mark. Cavanaugh would leave his position as head coach for one season in 1982 and Carl Koeppel would assume the reins. The Griffs would struggle the next two years under Koeppel and Cavanaugh, posting records of 9-16-1 and 5-21-1. However, Canisius would respond in 1984.

72 | 2011-12 CANISIUS COLLEGE HOCKEY MEDIA GUIDE

During the fall of 1984, a new generation of Griffs would arrive on campus and the school record books would be rewritten behind three future Canisius Hall of Famers. Joe Federico, Kevin Sykes and Mike Torrillo would all leave their mark on the Canisius hockey program before graduating. The Griffs turned things around to begin the 1984-85 season. After posting two-consecutive losing seasons, Canisius won four of its first five games en route to a 15-12-2 record. The 9.5 game turnaround from the 1983-84 season remains the greatest improvement in one season during school history. Sykes would lead the Griffs in scoring during his rookie season, posting 54 points on 28 goals and 26 assists. Federico registered one of the greatest seasons by a defender, recording 31 points and a school-record 27 assists. The 1985-86 season would once again show the promise of the Canisius hockey team. The Griffs posted an 18-9-2 record and would earn the program’s first-ever postseason bid. Canisius squared off with Elmira in the ECAC West Quarterfinals but the Soaring Eagles would emerge victorious, 6-3. Torrillo led the Griffs in scoring, posting 71 points on 27 goals and a school-record 44 assists. During the 1986-87 season, the Griffs would advance one step further. The team won a school-record 21 games during the regular season and earned a second-straight trip to the ECAC West Quarterfinals. The Griffs faced RIT in Rochester and won its first-ever postseason game with a 2-0 victory. However, Canisius’ run would end in the semifinals, falling to Plattsburgh, 9-4. Torrillo once again led the team in scoring, posting 69 points on a program-best 36 goals plus 33 assists. The three seniors wrapped up their Hall of Fame careers during the 198788 campaign, posting a 15-12-0 record. Canisius would earn a chance at redemption against Plattsburgh, squaring off against the Cardinals in the ECAC Quarterfinals. However, Plattsburgh would once again eliminate the Griffs, winning 6-3. Torrillo once again led the Griffs in scoring, setting his third school record with 74 points on 33 goals and 41 assists. Torrillo and Sykes graduated as the top two scorers in school history and it still remains that way 20 seasons later. Torrillo owns the program’s top marks with 265 points, 121 goals and 144 assists. Sykes ranks second with 234 points, 114 goals and 120 assists. Federico registered 102 points on 18 goals and 84 assists. His point total and assist total are still records for Canisius defensemen. With the loss of the three players, the Griffs fell below .500 during the 1988-89 season but still managed to grab it fourth-consecutive playoff berth. However, the Griffs experienced a similar postseason result, losing in the ECAC West Quarterfinals to Union, 6-3. Mike Sisti proved to be the new leader of the Griffs, recording 57 points on 33 goals and 24 assists. Sisti ranks fourth in school history with 163 points on 74 points and 89 assists and was inducted into the Canisius Hall of Fame in 2002. The Griffs struggled through the four seasons after its 1989 playoff appearance. For the only time in school history, Canisius went four-straight years without a winning season. However, the Griffs responded with nineconsecutive winning seasons, their longest run in the program’s history. Canisius’ winning ways began in the 1992-93 season, posting an 18-11-1 record, including a 17-6-1 mark against ECAC West opponents. The Griffs earned its first postseason bid in five years, defeating Mercyhurst in the ECAC West Semifinals, 5-3, before falling to Elmira, 2-1, in the championship game. The season also included the most dominating win in school history, a 22-1 victory over Scranton. The Griffs returned to the postseason the next two seasons, falling in the semifinals to RIT both seasons. Canisius lost to the Tigers to end the 1993-94 campaign, 4-3. The Griffs’ defeat at the end of the 1994-95 season is the longest game in school history, going into two overtimes before RIT won, 5-4.


GOLDEN GRIFFIN ICE HOCKEY CANISIUS HISTORY

Canisius returned to championship form once again during the 1995-96 campaign, led by Josh Oort. Oort would lead the Griffs to an 18-7-2 record and the postseason for a fourth-straight year. The Griffs would defeat Mercyhurst, 6-2, before once again falling to RIT in overtime, 3-2, in the championship. Oort would post 44 points on 15 goals and 29 assists to lead the Griffs’ offense for the first of three-consecutive seasons. Oort, who ranks third in school history with 172 career points, joined Torrillo as the only Griffs to lead the team in scoring in three-straight seasons. The Griffs finished play at the Division III level with two more playoff berths. For the third-consecutive season, Canisius lost to RIT in overtime to end its season, falling to the Tigers, 3-2, in the semifinals. The Griffs’ final season at Division III ended with a loss to rival Niagara, 4-1, in the ECAC West Semifinals.

The Division I Era Before the 1997-98 season, Canisius announced it would move to Division I and joined the newly-formed MAAC Hockey League beginning in 1998. The Griffs would now take on the strongest competition in the NCAA and looked to continue its success at the new level. Canisius began its new era in style, posting a 16-15-5 record and advancing to the MAAC Championship in its first season. As the No. 4 seed, the Griffs topped fifth-seeded AIC, 7-4, in the quarterfinals and upset top-seeded Quinnipiac in the semifinals, 5-2, before falling to Holy Cross in the championship, 4-3.

Mike Torrillo holds six school records, including the career and single-season marks in points, goals and assists.

The duo would lead the Griffs during the next three seasons. Despite Duggan missing most of the 1999-00 season due to injury, the Griffs would match a school record with 21 wins but would fall in the MAAC Quarterfinals to Iona, 4-3. Goalie Sean Weaver would step up Captain(s) Joe Casacci in Duggan’s absence and was named the Mark Wagner MAAC Goaltender of the Year.

CANISIUS HISTORY

Josh Heidinger was a member of Dave Smith’s first recruiting class at Canisius, helping the Griffs to their first wins against a nationally-ranked team in addition to an ECAC and CCHA school.

The next two seasons marked a time of change for Canisius. The Griffs left the MAAC after the 2002-03 season and joined the newly-formed Atlantic Hockey Association. Cavanaugh would also end his Canisius career after an amazing 341 victories at the helm of the Golden Griffin program. Dave Smith was named the Golden Griffins’ third coach on April 15, 2005. Smith has had an immediate impact in short time in charge of the program. Smith’s first full recruiting class earned 12 weekly honors during the 2006-07 season, the most of any Division I team in the country. Rookie Josh Heidinger tied the program’s Division I record with 26 assists. During the 2007-08 season, the Griffs tied No. 17 St. Cloud State in the second game of the season. The tie marked the first-ever point for Canisius against a nationally-ranked team. Four individual and team records also fell during the year, highlighted by Andrew Loewen’s 201-minute scoreless streak, the 10th-longest run in NCAA history. The 2008-09 season marked a number of historic firsts for the Canisius hockey program. The Griffs opened the season with its first victory over a CCHA school, defeating Ferris State, 5-2. Canisius also earned its first victory over an ECAC school (Clarkson) and tied a Hockey East school (Merrimack) in non-conference action. The high point of the season occurred when the Griffs swept a pair of games at nationally-ranked Air Force. The wins against the No. 15 Falcons marked the first victories for Canisius over a ranked opponent in the program’s history. The season was capped by Dave Kostuch earning Atlantic Hockey Rookie of the Year accolades, while juniors Carl Hudson and Jason Weeks were named to the all-conference third team. The Griffs continued to make their mark on the national stage during the 2009-10 campaign, ranking among the nation’s elite, earning individual accolades and watching a number of records fall.

74 | 2011-12 CANISIUS COLLEGE HOCKEY MEDIA GUIDE

Cory Conacher opened his junior season with a hat trick against Lake Superior State and didn’t slow down the rest of the way. Conacher became the first Griff to garner Atlantic Hockey Player of the Year accolades and set a number of school records. He totaled 53 points and 33 assists, the most in the program’s Division I history, while ranking second nationally with 1.51 points per game. Conacher was joined on the all-conference team by Hudson and junior Vincent Scarsella, who earned second and third-team honors, respectively. The 2009-10 campaign also marked the final season for Smith’s first full recruiting class and the group did not disappoint. The Class of 2010 helped Canisius to one of its most successful seasons in the program’s Division I history - earning its most wins in nine years and advancing to the Atlantic Hockey Semifinals for the first time since 2004. The success of the class did not end as the Canisius season came to an end. Seven members of the team went on to play professional hockey, including Hudson, who became the first Griff to sign an NHL contract after joining the Florida Panthers. Conacher returned for his senior campaign the next season and helped lead a young Canisius squad. On a team that featured 10 freshmen, Conacher became the first player in the program’s history to record two 40-point seasons, leading the Griffs with 42 points on a school-record 23 goals and 19 assists. Named to the Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award AllAmerica First Team, Conacher graduated with 12 career, single-season and single-game records, which includes career marks in points (147), goals (62) and game-winning tallies (12). The Griffs finished the 2010-11 season with a run to the Atlantic Hockey Quarterfinals, highlighted by eliminating their rival Niagara in the Atlantic Hockey First Round with a dominating 6-3 victory.

CANISIUS ADMINISTRATION

John J. Hurley President John J. Hurley assumed his position as the 24th president of Canisius College on July 1, 2010. He is the first lay president in Canisius College’s 140-year history. As president, he has led the college in the development of a new strategic plan approved by the college’s Board of Trustees and entitled A Transformational Education: The Strategic Plan for Canisius College. He has begun the renovation of the former HealthNow building on Main Street into a comprehensive state-of-the-art interdisciplinary science center, a $68 million capital project that will be completed in phases. He has also started the conversion of the Rev. Andrew L. Bouwhuis, S.J. Library into a comprehensive technology-based learning commons. He has announced the Hamlin Park Initiative through which houses owned by the college in the immediate neighborhood are being renovated and sold to buyers who commit to being owner occupiers. The college is also nearing its $90 million goal for the largest campaign in college history, A Legacy of Leadership: The Campaign for Canisius College. A 1978 alumnus of Canisius, President Hurley served as executive vice president of the college from 2007 to 2010 and vice president for college relations from 1997 to 2010. In these positions, he oversaw the college’s advancement and external relations and managed institutional strategic planning, integrated marketing, and legal and compliance issues. He also served as secretary to the Canisius College Board of Trustees. President Hurley has played a significant leadership role in the college’s investment in the campus since 1994, which now totals more than $150 million. He was the architect of the college’s innovative Employer Assisted Housing program, which offers employees grants in the form of forgivable loans to assist them with the purchase of homes near the college’s central Buffalo campus. A native of Buffalo, President Hurley is a graduate of St. Joseph’s Collegiate Institute in Kenmore; Canisius College (BA 1978 summa cum laude, English/history); and the University of Notre Dame Law School (JD 1981). He practiced law for 16 years, including 13 years at the Buffalo firm of Phillips, Lytle, Hitchcock, Blaine & Huber, where he concentrated his practice in the areas of secured lending, bankruptcy and insolvency. President Hurley serves on numerous educational associations and as the representative of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference’s representative on the NCAA’s President’s Advisory Group. He serves as Buffalo Bishop Edward U. Kmiec’s appointee on the board of Fidelis Care New York, a $2 billion health maintenance organization that serves the poor in New York State. He and his wife, Maureen, are chairs of the Bishop’s Council of the Laity for the Diocese of Buffalo. President Hurley is also a member of the Buffalo Philharmonic Board of Trustees. Inducted as a Distinguished Alumnus of Canisius College in 2002, President Hurley is also a recipient of the college’s LaSalle Medal (1996), which is the highest honor conferred upon an alumnus for service to alma mater. St. Joseph’s Collegiate Institute inducted him into its Signum Fidei Society (1998) and the University of Notre Dame presented President Hurley with its Exemplar Award (1997). In 1990, and again in 1997, President Hurley received the HOME’s (Housing Opportunities Made Equal) James Crawford and Director’s Awards for outstanding service to the cause of fair housing.

Dr. Ellen Conley Vice President for Student Affairs Ellen O. Conley, PhD, a member of the Canisius Community since 1970, was named vice president for student affairs in 1998. One of her many accomplishments in her role as vice president includes spearheading the upgrade of the athletics program at the college. Dr. Conley earned a bachelor’s degree from Slippery Rock State College (1967), advanced education degrees from the University of Pittsburgh (1968) and Buffalo State (1973) and a doctorate in higher education from the University at Buffalo (1981). During her tenure as dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, Dr. Conley supported the formation of the School of Education and Human Services, developed a mentoring program for new faculty, initiated the development of majors in criminal justice and environmental science and guided the initiative to implement a Master of Science in Organizational Communication and Development. She also established the Fine Arts Department and facilitated the development of MusiCanisius, which has since evolved into the ArtsCanisius program. While acting dean, she coordinated the promotion of the school’s graduate education program to the Canadian market and guided the implementation of the Master in Sport Administration. From 1987-89, Dr. Conley was the assistant director of athletics for women’s sports and financial aid, and from 1987-90, she was the athletic scholarship coordinator. Under her direction, the women’s athletic program was formed and grew from one club level team to seven varsity teams. In addition, she implemented and monitored an athletic scholarship program for men’s and women’s non-revenue producing sports. From 1982-1990 Dr. Conley served as chair of the undergraduate Physical Education Major Program and Coordinator of the Physical Education Graduate Program. In 1989, she developed alternative curricular tracks for physical education majors to enhance enrollment, and in 1986, she co-wrote the New York State Professional Preparation Council’s position paper for “Strengthening Teaching in New York State.”

The Demske Sports Complex received a $1.7 million facelift with the installation of new A-Turf as well as new scoreboards. New offices for coaches along with new locker rooms for all of the men’s teams were constructed in 2010. Maher is the MAAC’s representative to the NCAA Legislative Council, which has one representative from each of the 31 Division I conferences. A Canisius graduate and former assistant athletic director at the school, Maher spent seven years at the University at Buffalo and served as the Bulls’ interim athletic director from 2003-05. During his tenure as the interim athletic director at Buffalo, Maher helped UB Athletics oversee $3.6 million in capital improvements to its athletic facilities, restructure the school’s Blue & White Club fund drive for athletics, which generated $1 million during the 2003-04 season, and develop marketing campaigns which increased attendance at athletic events. He also oversaw the development of the men’s basketball program, which set a school record for victories and earned the first postseason bid in school history with an invitation to the 2005 National Invitation Tournament. Under his watch, the Bulls’ RPI increased from 284 in 2003 to as high as 34 during the 2004-05 season. Maher was a four-year letterwinner on the Canisius College football team from 1985-88 and earned All-America honorable mention honors as a senior. He received his bachelor’s degree in physical education from Canisius in 1989 and his master’s degree in sport management from East Stroudsburg University in 1990. Following an internship with the New York Knicks, Maher returned to Canisius in 1991, becoming the assistant athletic director for compliance in 1994. He became the director of compliance at the University at Buffalo in 1998, where he moved up the ranks and was named senior associate athletic director in 2002. In that role, he managed the day-to-day operations of the Division of Athletics, including the direct supervision of Buffalo’s football and men’s and women’s basketball programs, in addition to the office of compliance and the office of student-athlete services. Maher resides in East Amherst with his wife, Kristin, and sons, Danny and David.
