Last year, the Rage played their opponents from the Alberta Junior Hockey League in a one-sided game that saw the Storm take it by a score of 4-1. Following their exhibition game this season, the Rage will then host the Prince George Spruce Kings of the British Columbia Hockey League on Sept. 10 in another exhibition game before the regular season begins.
Tickets for those exhibition games are only $11 and can be purchased at the Tiger Box Office Plus or Co-op High Performance Ticket Outlet, or by going online to www.dawsoncreekeventscentre.com or www.dawsonco-optickets.com.
The Rage will then travel to Blaine, Minnesota, where they will compete in the North American Hockey League’s Showcase Tournament from Sept. 14 to 17. The team will play four games in four days against the Corpus Christi Ice Rays, Coulee Region Chill, Kalamazoo Jr. K Wings, and Michigan Warriors, respectively.
The team will open their regular season with a six-game homestand against the Minot Minotauros, Fresno Monsters and Bismarck Bobcats, respectively, starting Sept. 23. Tickets – including season tickets and flex packs – are available through the venues listed above, or by calling 250-795-3306.
Before the hockey season gets underway, however, the Rage will host an open house at the EnCana Events Centre from 3-6 p.m. this Thursday. The public is invited down to join the team’s coaching staff for a behind-the-scenes tour of the arena and the team’s dressing room. Season ticket holders can also pick up their tickets during the open house, and those who purchase season tickets at the open house will save $50.
