Look, had to try to lure you in somehow, and the headline's really the only way.
In any event, the ECHL today issued a press release detailing the 25 exhibition games league members will play in October -- just a heads-up: The Alaska Aces entertain the Cincinnati Cyclones, Tuesday and Wednesday, Oct. 8-9 at Sullivan Arena.
We knew that. But get a load of the Las Vegas Wranglers and Wheeling Nailers, both of which are going to play four exhibition games. And get this: The Wranglers are playing their four preseason games in five days on a journey that begins with two games in Colorado, followed by a travel day, followed by a game at Ontario, followed by a matinee against visiting Ontario.
Wheeling, at least, plays its four exhibitions over an eight-day period.
Kalamazoo, Fort Wayne, Bakersfield and San Francisco are each playing three exhibitions.
And 21 of the circuit's 22 teams will play in the preseason. The lone holdout: the Evansville Icemen.
