The Alaska Aces today revealed the dates and opponent for their annual two preseason games, which serve as fundraisers in the local fight against breast cancer.
The seventh annual "Paint The Rink Pink'' games are Oct. 8-9 at Sullivan Arena against the Cincinnati Cyclones. The puck drops at 7:15 both nights.
Proceeds, after expenses, to go Breast Cancer, Inc., and the American Cancer Society.
Tickets will go on sale in September. Tickets will be $10 for season-ticket holders and groups of 10 or more, and $15 for all others.
Having the Cyclones in town will mark the first time since the 2011 ECHL Kelly Cup Finals -- Kalamazoo was in town for Games 1 and 2 of that finale -- that the Aces have faced a team from the Eastern Conference.
