The Hofstra Ice Hockey Club held practice at the Freeport Recreation Center in early October, when warm weather met cold ice, causing fog to settle over team members as they ran through their drills. After a strong start to the season, including a win at the Inaugural Burning Leaves Tournament in Lake Placid, the squad regrouped after its first set of games. Led by head coach Ryan Kelly, the Pride sought to power past a tough weekend that saw them lose games against Sacred Heart and Stony Brook. Kelly drilled the players on several points, including the power play and transitions into the attacking zone.
