The University of Miami Men’s Hockey team defeated the Florida Jr. Blades at Kendall Ice Arena on Friday night 6-2 in an exhibition game. Attending the game was the voice of UM’s band Jason Mizrachi along with his family to drop the opening ceremony puck before the game.
The start of the game was very physical as both teams came out of the gate flying, neither backing down when it came to checking the body. The Jr. Blades are a strong fast and hard hitting team compared to the Hurricane’s opponents so far this season and looked to wear down the Cames early. In the end the Canes came out on top winning by a final score of 6-2 after figuring out the Jr. Blades’ defense and managing to capitalize on the power play.
UM travels to Germain Arena tomorrow to take on the Jr. Blades in the second of back to back exhibition games between the two teams.
