College Hockey:
Elmira coach leaves team to be with injured brother

The Elmira College men’s team will play without head coach Aaron Saul when it takes on Hobart College in the ECAC West semifinals tonight.

Saul is in Germany to be with his brother, Adrian, who broke his neck while playing in a hockey game there, according to the Star Gazette.

Assistant coach Dean Jackson will run the Soaring Eagles Saturday night.

Julia Saul, Aaron Saul’s wife, said Friday that Adrian broke vertebrae in his neck after colliding with another player, but is not paralyzed.

Adrian Saul is a 2000 Elmira graduate and is among the top scorers in school history with 136 points.
