Let’s go to the Big Board!!
Canisius is 2-2 on the season after defeating Cleveland State last weekend. Junior attackman Connor Kearnan is a Canadian who leads the team with nine goals and nine assists for 18 points. Jeff Edwards is one of the best Golden Griffins in program history at midfield, along with junior Steven Coss. Junior Liam Ganzhorn should get the start in net.
For Hobart, they’re on a three-game losing streak after starting 2-1 and scoring at least 15 goals in those first three games. They’ve scored just six goals in each of their three losses, and have given up 12, 13, and 16 goals respectively. Freshman Justin Scott leads the team with 13 goals on the season and is tied with junior Frank Brown for the team lead in points with 15. Brown leads the team with fellow junior Sean Donnelly with six assists. Junior Jackson Browne has had a so-so year with about a 46% save percentage. Freshman Tristan Dougherty might get some time if Browne begins to falter.
Due to the winter storm, the game will be played in Victor at the Pinnacle Athletic Campus.
"Steven is one of our key players and right now we're riding him," coach Randy Mearns said. "He's a do-it-all player who is a two-way midfielder, helps out on the power play and can take face-offs."
Coss has three ground balls and is 6-for-16 on face-offs. For his career, he has 67 ground balls, five caused turnovers and is 161-for-348 on face-offs. He entered this season with seven goals and an assist in 27 career games.
The 5-foot-11, 195-pounder is also a junior captain.
"Steven is one of our leaders, on and off the field and in the community," Mearns said. "He's 'the guy' and his teammates look up to him because he does the right thing on the field and in the class room. And, he's a big influence on them in the locker room."
