BEYOND THE BOARDS
WEEKEND WATCH: OCTOBER 5-7

Whether you’re in Buffalo, or just a short drive away on either end of the I-90, there are several quality options available this weekend if you want to watch some live hockey.

FRIDAY
OHL: Brampton @ Erie, 7 p.m. (Erie Insurance Arena)
It’s the home opener for the Otters, after starting the season with five straight road games. Erie is led by 15-year-old sensation Connor McDavid who leads all OHL rookies with six (1+5) points. Buffalo-native Dylan Blujus, a second-round pick of the Tampa Bay Lightning in June, plays for Brampton.

SATURDAY
NCAA: Bowling Green @ Niagara, 4 p.m. (Dwyer Arena)
The Purple Eagles open up their 2012-13 schedule against the Falcons in their only Saturday afternoon home game of the year. Niagara was 17-11-9 last season, and was picked to finish second in the Atlantic Hockey Association (AHA) preseason poll.

OHL: London @ Erie, 7 p.m. (Erie Insurance Arena)
Erie closes out a set of back-to-back home games against the London Knights, who feature a familiar name in high-scoring forward Max Domi. After scoring 16 goals in their first two games, London has only scored twice in their last two games.

University of Ottawa @ RIT, 7 p.m. (Ritter Arena)
The Tigers get their first game action of the year with an exhibition tilt versus the visiting University of Ottawa Gee-Gees. RIT returns 16 players from last season’s squad, including 2012 leading scorer and All-AHA second team selection Mike Colavecchia.

Wilfrid Laurier University @ Mercyhurst, 7 p.m. (Mercyhurst Ice Center)
With 23 returning players, the Lakers look to improve on the 2011-12 season that saw them post a 201-6-4 record and advance all the way to the AHA semifinals. Tonight’s game is an exhibition contest against the Wilfred Laurier (University) Golden Hawks from Waterloo, Ont.

SUNDAY
University of Ottawa @ Canisius, 2 p.m. (Buffalo State Ice Arena)
Head coach Dave Smith’s Griffs hit the ice for the first time this season against the barnstorming Gee-Gees in an exhibition affair. Canisius doesn’t play a regular season home game until they host Air Force on October 25, following two-game trips to Alaska (Kendall Hockey Classic tournament) and Western Michigan.
