TUCSON, AZ – The Tucson Roadrunners, proud American Hockey League affiliate of the Arizona Coyotes, are set to host the Stockton Heat for a set of midweek games at Tucson Arena on Tuesday and Wednesday of next week.
For the first of two contests, fans can take advantage of a ticket deal at the Tucson Convention Center box office, receiving two Corner or Ends section seats for just $20, a savings of $12.
On the eve of Thanksgiving, fans ages 14 and under are free admittance with the purchase of a paid adult ticket. Additionally, it’s a “1-2-3 Night” presented by Coors Light, featuring $1 soft drinks, $2 hot dogs and $3 beers.
At both games, the Roadrunners are proud to be hosting a toy drive to benefit Banner Children’s Hospital at Diamond Children’s Medical Center. The team is encouraging fans to bring an unwrapped toy to Tucson Arena, which will then be donated to the Toy Closet at Diamond Children’s. The closet allows young patients to choose a new toy after undergoing procedures or treatments.
The Roadrunners donated over 100 toys to Diamond Children’s at the club’s second annual “Roadrunners Fan Fest” in September and hope to assist with another contribution ahead of the holiday season.

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.
Tuesday 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.
