Owls hockey is underway this year. The team is 1-1 so far. They play again tonight, 8:15 pm, at Saveology.com Iceplex in Coral Springs. You can check out their schedule at www.fauhockey.com

Re: FAU Hockey

This is awesome!  I had no idea that this was even in the works.  My oldest Son played hockey for 11 years in NC & TN and now has the chance to go to FAU and play the sport that he loves ;D

Re: FAU Hockey

Voice, is the team aware of Boca's desire to build an ice rink on Spanish River Blvd by the library?

I think the submitted bids were put on hold due to the shaky economy but hopefully that will change.

Not sure if you knew anything about it, if the team (especially the coach) had approached the City about using it as their "home" ice rink, etc.

Re: FAU Hockey

OWL4EVER - That would be awesome as they're missing a lot of players! Unfortunately, they're under a lot of financial pressure, since the school doesn't help at all. They currently only have 2 defensemen on the roster (most teams have at least 6, for 3 pairings). Forwards have had to play D.

owlcountry - I'm not sure I've heard about that. I think the team is really happy at Saveology. It's a great facility - it's where the Panthers practice and they accommodate things well.

NCowl - They are pretty cool. The home jerseys are slightly less cool - they're white with red stripes and FAU on them. I got one of those blue jerseys with "The Voice" on the back during a ceremony last year. It is a really sweet jersey.

The team is traveling to Albany for a big tournament next weekend. They're not home again until early November. They are currently 3-2 on the year.

Re: FAU Hockey

Owls just played in a huge tournament in Albany this past weekend and went 2-1 against perennial powers, despite having an even more shorthanded roster than usual. Really excited for how well they're playing.

Re: FAU Hockey

Hmmm…wonder if FAU would consider replacing one of the "non revenue" sports that make nothing and produce no attendance in exchange for adding a hockey team - which is more exciting to watch and would draw much better, IMO.

The potential Spanish River plan Owlcountry mentioned would make it a much more attractive point of consideration for sure…….

How many fans are you guys currently getting to a "home" game AI_TheVoice?

Re: FAU Hockey

It definitely varies. We probably get 50-100 on a good night. Sometimes we get a big group of students that show up (the same group that makes a lot of noise at basketball games). It doesn't seem like a huge number but given the lack of knowledge about it, it's not bad. Sometimes the stands are pretty full.

Re: FAU Hockey

FAU Hockey and FAU Rugby are two teams that probably deserve much more fan support than they actually get...

Have you ever approached Angelos or Saunders to get new and updated uniforms?
What conference do you play in?
