The die hard hockey enthusiasts have followed and loyally supported the Utica College Hockey team the last few years, because they play hard and fast hockey, and do it pretty well. Unlike, their professional predecessors they play and love hockey for no pay, so it is easier to keep a college team on the ice in Utica then the high overhead professional teams that gave it a go in the past.
The team was "in pink" as a boost for National Breast Cancer Awareness. Another example of how supportive the community is as over 3,800 fans showed up to support Breast Cancer Awareness and to see this duel with 5th ranked Elmira. Go check out a game and support Coach Heenan and Utica College hockey. You'll have a great time too!!!
