Tickets for the annual New York Sash Teddy Bear Toss are now available.

Individual game tickets for all Utica College Hockey games went on sale over the weekend. This year's Teddy Bear Toss game - the thirteenth annual - is set for Saturday night December 9th, 2017 at the Utica AUD.

The Pioneers are hosting longtime ECAC West rival Neumann University. Effective this season, both are now members of the newly created United Collegiate Hockey Conference.

Scot Hayes of New York Sash joined the Keeler in the Morning Show on Tuesday saying he expects the game to sellout quickly, as it has in years past. Tickets are $7 each, and as of this posting not many remained - click for UC Hockey Tix.

When the Pioneers score their first goal, fans are encouraged to throw new or gently used stuffed animals onto the ice. They're collected and donated to local holiday toy collections for the less fortuante, including Operation Sunshine and Toys for Tots.
