OXFORD, Ohio - RedHawk fans will have the chance to interact with their favorite Miami hockey players this Saturday (Dec. 8) as The Brotherhood hosts its annual Autograph Night following its matchup with Lake Superior State at Steve Cady Arena. Fans are encouraged to bring their favorite Miami gear, as players will be available for autographs. Jerseys, shirts, posters, and hockey sticks are all welcome, among other Miami items. The post-game festivities will be held at center ice where players will be seated at a long row of tables.
The RedHawks (9-2-3, 6-2-2-2 CCHA) are currently ranked third in the NCAA and are in first place in the CCHA with 22 points. The Red and White are coming off a sweep of CCHA rival Alaska, earning a 5-2 win last Friday and a 4-0 shutout on Saturday night. Miami is riding a seven-game unbeaten streak as the 'Hawks have not lost a game since Nov. 2 at Ferris State. The RedHawks were shutout 3-0 that night, but have out scored opponents by an impressive 24-10 margin during their streak. Lake Superior (7-9-0, 4-6-0-0 CCHA) will be looking to bounce back after getting swept by CCHA foe Notre Dame last weekend in South Bend, Ind.
RedHawk fans will have another opportunity to meet with the players when the team holds its second Skate with the 'Hawks Night on Feb 2. after its matchup with Alaska. The first Skate with the 'Hawks event was on Oct. 13 after a 5-1 Miami victory over Colgate.
Puck drop against Lake Superior is 7:35 p.m. Friday and 7:05 p.m. Saturday at Steve Cady Arena. Tickets can be purchased here.
