The Ice Hogs will begin defense of their SECHC title in the conference opener against Auburn tomorrow and Saturday at the Jones Center in Springdale. Games times are 7:30pm.
Auburn opened their 2014-2015 campaign this past Saturday against Georgia Tech losing 12-2. There were questions leading up to the weekend if the club would be able to fill a roster due to a lack of a goaltender. The team decided to go ahead and push through the schedule this season with the uncertainty of who would be in net. Without a goalie with previous experience on the roster, the team needed to select a forward or defensemen to fill the roll. Wil Rodell, a forward and the club’s vice-president, volunteered to play in net against the Yellow Jackets.
Although Auburn has struggled at times since joining the SECHC, they would like nothing better than to knock off the Ice Hogs. Tickets are: $8 seating- $5 standing room (glass level) $3 children- 12 and under FREE.
