The Ole Miss Hockey website is undergoing a rebuild! We hope to be able to give our fans and prospective future Rebels a much better experience in the coming season, so please bear with us as we work to improve our site!
With another recruit weekend approaching, here is some information regarding the weekend. Recruit weekend will begin on March 4th and end on March 6th.
While attending the recruit visit weekend is not required, we highly recommend you come down because we incorporate a team skate, campus visit, campus event and a dorm stay with current players. It has always been a great weekend that has solidified Ole Miss as each recruit’s top choice to attend.
If you are interested in attending this years recruit weekend, please click here.
If you want to make a campus visit before or after the Recruit Weekend, feel free to contact Coach Rosena, Coach Armstrong or Coach Jacquot
We are thrilled to have you as a prospective 2016 Rebel and look forward to having you down to Oxford, MS for a visit.
After getting off to a 0-6 start, the Rebels head into the holiday break with a record of 5-8. The Rebels played an exhibition game against Fort Benning to cap off the mid point of their season. Ole Miss topped Ft. Benning 7-5 with a late game winning goal from Quinton Humphrey.
Ole Miss was receiving votes after the first DIII ACHA rankings. These rankings included games from the beginning of the season, up to November 8. The second rankings will be released from games following November 8, to December 6.
“There were growing pains which will come when you have as many new players as we do,” says Head Coach Angelo Rosena. “At the same time it was a good experience and I see a lot of potential for the spring semester.”
Ole Miss will open the second half of the season against Mississippi State on Wednesday, January 13. The following weekend, the Rebels will head to Knoxville, TN for a showcase against Tennessee, South Carolina and Liberty.
“We have some games on the schedule that will help us make a push for the post season,” says Rosena. Following the Tennessee showcase, Ole Miss will face D1 ACHA rival Alabama. Picking up a win against the Crimson Tide will most definitely help the Rebels reach the regional tournament.
(Olive Branch, MS) Last weekend the Rebels faced their second SEC opponent, the Arkansas Razorbacks. Arkansas came into the weekend 6-2, with losses to Vanderbilt and Kennesaw State.
On Friday, the Razorbacks jumped to a very quick start, scoring 17 seconds into the first period. After out shooting their opponent in the first period, the Rebels went into the locker room down 2-0. Eddie Murphy would notch a power play goal in the second period to make the score 2-1, but Arkansas would not let the Rebels back in the game. Ole Miss would fall 8-2 that night, looking for revenge on Saturday.
Saturday was very similar to the previous night’s game. Arkansas would get the opening goal and eventually make it 2-0. A great pass from Eddie Murphy resulted in a Nick Bitetto goal, making the score once again 2-1. That would be all the scoring for the Rebels, as Arkansas would soar to a 6-1 victory. Ole Miss is now 3-8 on the season, with no games this weekend.
The Rebels will be preparing for next weeks match up in Biloxi, MS to take on Middle Tenn. State and rival Mississippi State. Both games will be played at the Gulf Coast Coliseum at 8pm (Fri & Sat). Tickets will be available at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum Box Office and online at the Coast Coliseum website.

(Cumming, GA) Ole Miss picked up two hard fought wins this weekend against Georgia Tech. Offense was at an all time high this weekend for the Rebels as they won both games with a score of 6-4.
Friday night the Rebels came out strong and hungry, opening with a quick 2-0 lead. Georgia Tech came out in the second period and tied the game 2-2. Both teams would exchange goals, which resulted in a 3-3 tie going into the third. With a final of 6-4, goals were scored by Nick Bitetto (2), Austin Graf, Dan Warnecke (2) and Connor Silk.
Saturday night the Yellow Jackets took an early 3-0 lead, but it was Coach Rosena’s timeout that refocussed the Rebels to fight back and win 6-4 yet again. Goals were scored by Austin Graf, Connor Silk, Sean Diver, Eddie Murphy and Dan Warnecke (2).
The Rebels will have off next week as they prepare for Arkansas on October 30.

(Cincinnati, OH) After losing the first two games of the season, Ole Miss headed to Cincinnati to take on Xavier, Grand Valley State and Oakland.
The Rebels took on Xavier Saturday afternoon, which was game 1 of their double header. Xavier came out strong and took a 3-0 lead after the first period. The Rebels, who have already experienced slow starts, made it mandatory to come out strong in the second. Sean Rogers, with help from Warnecke and Bitetto, cut the deficit to two, but it was Xavier scoring once again to make the score 4-1. Xavier carried momentum into the third with one final goal to end the game 5-1.
With only hours of rest, the Rebels played Grand Valley State later Saturday night. Grand Valley State scored first and kept a 1-0 lead going into the second period. After netting 2 more goals, Ole Miss’ Silk and Warnecke put in one each, making the game 3-2. Unfortunately, the third period was not for the Rebels. Final score, 6-3 Grand Valley State.
The Rebels took on Northern powerhouse Oakland Sunday morning. It was all Oakland from start to finish, which resulted in a 14-1 loss for Ole Miss. Jimmy Rainey was the only goal scorer.
This weekend will be an off weekend for the Rebels. In two weeks, they will travel to Tennessee to seek their first win against SEC opponent Vanderbilt.
