The Canisius Golden Griffins men's ice hockey team is a National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I college ice hockey program that represents Canisius College. The Golden Griffins are a member of Atlantic Hockey. They play at the Buffalo State Sports Arena in Buffalo, New York.[1] Canisius won an automatic bid to the 2013 NCAA Men's Ice Hockey Championship after winning the Atlantic Hockey title in the conference playoffs, but lost in the first round to top-ranked Quinnipiac.[2]

In Fall 2014, the team will move to the HarborCenter, currently under construction across the street from the First Niagara Center, home of the Buffalo Sabres of the National Hockey League.
