"Our annual golf outing is a very important fundraiser for our hockey program. It allows us to make upgrades throughout our program, provide the absolute best for our student-athletes and remain competitive in the NCAA," RMU Men's Hockey Head Coach Derek Schooley said. "The support Robert Morris, Pittsburgh, and youth hockey communities have shown this event has been outstanding, and we are looking forward to another sold-out event this year to support the Robert Morris men's hockey program."
Registration for the event is $180 per golfer, and individual players as well as groups are welcome. Registration includes 18 holes of golf with carts, skill and team prizes, door prizes, RMU hockey shirt, complimentary concessions on the course, dinner, Chinese and silent auctions, and two seats to a Colonial men's hockey home game.

RMU is coming off the two most successful seasons in program history with a combined 35 wins between the 2010-11 and 2011-12 seasons. Last season, the Colonials boasted the best penalty killing unit in the nation at .899 - the highest success rate in the NCAA since 2006-07. Robert Morris also picked up its first-ever Atlantic Hockey playoff series win in a thrilling three-game series against American International after joining the league in 2010-11.
The upcoming season will take the Colonials program to new heights as RMU unveils the first-ever Pittsburgh College Hockey Invitational in December before hosting the 2013 NCAA Men's Frozen Four next April at CONSOL Energy Center.
