On Monday , January 11th, at 7pm, the Burlington Eagles are pleased to announce that Canisius College Head Hockey Coach Dave Smith will join us at Central Auditorium for an information session about both the Canisius hockey program and to provide an overview on general NCAA –related considerations for our Eagles graduates to consider.
