In the wake of the San Francisco Bulls folding earlier this week, the ECHL's Alaska Aces, who had seven games remaining against that club, today announced their revised schedule. They will play 71 games instead of the usual 72 in the regular season, losing one road game.
The most immediate changes take place next week in a home series against Stockton. That ECHL Hockey Heritage Weekend originally was scheduled to have games Friday, Saturday and Sunday, the 7th, 8th and 9th. Those games remain, but an additional two home games have been scheduled against Stockton on Tuesday, Feb. 11 and Thursday Feb. 13 -- so, it's a five-game series, like a playoff series.
Here are the dates added and removed.
