Note, the title now says “games” plural. This is great news. I was totally disappointed when the initial release came out and said there would only be one game. A lot of alumni that used to be regulars like Brendan Morrison and Marty Turco were not on the list of attendees. For a weekend that used to be the highlight of the summer for us hockey fans, to see the number of players coming back diminish to the point of just one game was sad. But enough late confirmations has granted us a second game. So good for us!
Friday evening Yost Ice Arena opens up at 6 p.m. and the Over-35 game starts at 6:30 p.m. That will be followed by an Under-35 game. And admission is FREE, kids, FREE.
