Oswego men's ice hockey in 1964-65

Then: This image from the 1965 Ontarian yearbook shows the men's ice hockey team in its debut varsity season of 1964-65 (after a brief stint as a club sport). When the yearbook went to press, the squad -- composed mostly of freshmen -- sported an impressive 13-4-1 record, including 11-1-1 in the now-defunct Finger Lakes Hockey League. Three losses came to a tough St. Lawrence frosh squad, but "were real thrillers," the yearbook said. Note also the helmetless player, before such protection became mandatory, and the chain-link fence surrounding the old rink in Golden Romney Field House.

Justin Fox scores a goal

Now: Family and Friends Weekend marks the season debut for the men's hockey team -- hosting Elmira on Saturday -- and resurgent women's team, who play an exhibition vs. the Durham West Lightning on Friday night in the Campus Center arena. The men are coming off back-to-back appearances in the elite Frozen Four national semifinals, as well as a 2007 national Division III championship. The women's team, entering its sixth season, made its second ECAC West playoff appearance last year, and scored the biggest Division III upset over then-undefeated and top-ranked Rochester Institute of Technology. Here Justin Fox celebrates with Laker fans after scoring in a past clash between Oswego and archrival Plattsburgh in the annual White Out men's hockey game, the hottest ticket of the season.
