After a long and very exciting offseason, Phoenix Knights hockey is back. Well, sort of. While the regular season is still a week away for the Knights, the preseason is ready to be capped off with a pair of games against Northern Arizona University. Friday’s game will be at AZ Ice Gilbert against NAU’s ACHA D-III team, and Saturday’s will be up in Flagstaff against their ACHA D-II team.
This will be the second consecutive season that the Knights and IceJacks face off in a pair of preseason games. Last season, Phoenix won 9-4 at home against the D-III team, and dropped the road matchup against the D-II team by a score of 5-1.
Each game this weekend will have some familiar names to Knights, and WSHL fans, playing for the IceJacks. NAU’s D-III team includes former Knights defenseman Alex Rodriguez and former Seattle Totems and San Diego Sabers forward Sam Heiser. The D-II team features a pair of players who have seen time with the Knights. Forwards Max Mahood and Alex Shupe lead the D-II IceJacks offensive attack.
Admission to Friday’s game against NAU will have special pricing. Adults are $2, and any kids in Knights or AZ Ice Gilbert house jerseys get in free.
Ticket prices for regular season games will remain the same as they’ve been over the past few seasons. For more information about season tickets and single-game ticket options, click here.
