Simon Fraser University Hockey proudly announces our 10th Anniversary Celebration that will be taking place during the 2015/16 season. This year will mark 10 years, of both the BCIHL, and the re-launched SFU Men’s Ice Hockey team.
Throughout the year there will be a number of special events celebrating 10 years of SFU Hockey, including; Top 10 SFU Players Countdown, Top 10 SFU Moments Countdown, Alumni night, and other player appearances and ceremonies. There is also a special 10th anniversary logo which will be featured throughout the season.
The 2015/16 regular season kicks off with a meeting between SFU and local rival Trinity Western University on Saturday October 10th in Langley. It will be a rematch of the BCIHL semi-final series in which SFU swept the top team in the regular season. Both teams will want to get off to a good start to the season, and show their rivals what to expect.
The Clan’s home opener will be the following Saturday, October 17th when Eastern Washington pays a visit to Burnaby. The Eagles missed the BCIHL playoffs last season, and will be looking to make a statement early in the season. Last year, the Clan saw over 1300 fans attend the home opener, in what was the largest BCIHL crowd of the season.
Fans will have to wait until the final home game of the Fall semester to see a rematch of the 2015 BCIHL championship, as Selkirk College will visit Burnaby on December 5th. It will also be the “Holiday Toss Night”, in the spirit of the teddy bear toss, SFU staff are working with local groups to find other items to be tossed. Stay tuned to find out what will be raining onto the ice that night when SFU scores it’s first goal.
SFU will play 5 of their 12 home games during the fall semester, and will have all regular season games, home and away available on PPV at www.fasthockey.com.
This will be the second season of the Clan’s partnership with the Highland Pub on the Burnaby campus, and all weekday games will be shown live on TV. During the fall semester, the only two weekday away games are Friday October 30th vs Eastern Washington, and Friday November 20th vs UVIC.
This season will feature all 5 BCIHL teams playing each opponent 6 times (3 home 3 away), to complete the 24 game season. The BCIHL Showcase will be hosted by SFU at Bill Copeland, January 15th-17th, and will feature all 5 BCIHL teams playing games in Burnaby that weekend, along with numerous other events celebrating 10 years of the BCIHL.
