The Morrisville Mustangs Men’s Hockey Team was a very young team in 2022-23 that compiled an overall record of 8-17-0 (4-12-0 in the SUNYAC). This season, Head Coach Kevin Kogol’s team will look to learn from that experience to move up in the SUNYAC standings.

The Mustangs will play twenty-five regular season games in 2023-24, with eighteen being SUNYAC games. Seven non-conference games will be played against opponents from the UCHC, CCC, two independents, and two games at the Castleton Terry Moran Invitational Tournament. The Mustangs have no scheduled exhibition games.
