Bear Pride Night, live TV broadcast highlight weekend in SUNY Potsdam men’s hockey


The SUNY Potsdam athletic department will host Bear Pride Night, the first of two to take place during the 2010-11 academic year, this Friday, Dec. 3, as the men’s hockey team takes on Plattsburgh at 7 p.m. in a battle between State University of New York Athletic Conference foes at Maxcy Hall Ice Arena.

In addition, Saturday’s men’s hockey game against Hobart, which is scheduled for 7 p.m., will be broadcast live by Time Warner Cable Sports on channel 9 in Potsdam.

On Friday, the athletic department will host a number of events as part of Bear Pride Night. The College Store and PACES (Potsdam Auxiliary and College Educational Services, Inc.) will sponsor a Chinese basket auction in the main hallway by the arena entrance, while the school’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) will sponsor a Chuck-A-Puck contest between the first and second period.

Fans who make a donation to the Bears Stick It To Cancer initiative Friday will be entered into a drawing for a chance to participate in the Sears Shootout, to be held at the end of the second period. The winner of the shootout will receive a 42-inch flat screen television. In addition, a Bears men’s hockey jersey will be auctioned off.

All proceeds from the shootout and jersey raffle will benefit Bears Stick It To Cancer, a fundraising effort sponsored by North Country Savings Bank which seeks to donate money to the American Cancer Society in its push for cancer research and awareness.
