Biographical/Historical Information (Collapse)

In 1980, the RIT men's hockey program made a giant step forward by moving to the Division II level of play. This meant playing a challenging 25 game schedule, featuring 16 matches against Division II teams. Along with it, RIT began playing in the New York State College Hockey League (NYSCHL), comprised solely of Division II schools. The league folded in 1985-86.

The 1982-83 season marked a milestone in the program, as the Tigers won their first NCAA Championship in Division II. In the two game quarterfinal series, RIT defeated Mankato State and went on to beat Lowell 4-1 in the semifinals advancing them to the championship game where they defeated Bemidji State, 4-2. The next year RIT moved to the Division III level. The Tigers repeated again as Champions in 1984-85 this time at the Division III level, defeating Bemidji State once again by a score of 5-1.
