The UB ACHA hockey team visited Niagara University on Friday, Sept. 29 to play in the second annual “Midnight Madness” game, honoring former Niagara player Patrick Romano, who died in a house fire in 2021. Niagara held a pregame moment of silence to honor Romano. His mother, Charlene Romano, took the ice for a ceremonial puck drop between the two teams.
