The SUMHA Hall of Fame Selection Committee will induct 7 former members of the program and 1 championship team into the Syracuse Men’s Hockey Hall of Fame. The committee will also present the 2022 Van Winkle Award - given to the Syracuse University Men’s Ice Hockey individual who have demonstrated leadership on and off the ice and have made significant contributions to the development of the program and the maintenance of its legacy.
Following the Hall of Fame ceremony the Orange will take on New York University at 7:30PM down the street at the Tennity Ice Pavilion. A ceremonial puck drop involving all the Hall of Fame inductees and Van Winkle Award recipients will take place prior to the game.
On Sunday, November 6th, 2022 Syracuse will host the men’s hockey Alumni Game at 10:00AM right back at the Tennity Ice Pavilion. All former members of the organization are welcome to take the ice with a few of the program’s current players and coaches.

The Syracuse Men’s Hockey Hall of Fame was founded in 2019. The Hall of Fame has honored 25 members of SU Men’s Hockey as well as 6 championship teams.
