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.

·         Other items Coach Smith feels are important for players and their families to know about NCAA.

We will also have a Q and A session with Coach Smith at the end of his presentation to the Eagles to discuss NCAA hockey.
