TUCSON, AZ – The Tucson Roadrunners, proud American Hockey League affiliate of the Arizona Coyotes, are set to celebrate the Thanksgiving Eve holiday with a night of cheap food and fun at Tucson Arena next Wednesday.
With the purchase of a paid adult ticket, all children 14 and under will gain free admittance to the Roadrunners game. The offer can be redeemed at the Tucson Convention Center box office.
Once in the arena, it’s a “1-2-3 Night” presented by Coors Light, featuring $3 Beers, $2 Hot Dogs and $1 Soft Drinks.
For more information on both promotions, call the Roadrunners at 866-774-6253 or visit the team’s offices at 175 W. Broadway Blvd. in Tucson.
Fresh off winning three games in four days last week the Roadrunners will now turn their attention to their first meeting of the season with the Stockton Heat this Friday night at Stockton Arena in California. Goaltender Merrick Madsen became the talk of the American Hockey League with his recent success, becoming the first goaltender in team history to post consecutive shutouts in regular season games in just his third and fourth AHL starts.
Newly appointed team captain Dakota Mermis is expected to make his debut wearing the “C” on Friday after returning from a stint with the Arizona Coyotes last week.
Last night goaltender Hunter Miska became the 20th former Roadrunners to play a game for the parent club, making his NHL debut in the team’s contest against the Detroit Red Wings. The second-year pro has played in 43 career games with Tucson, including seven thus far this season.
