Pre-Christmas week in the CIHL
December 16, 2014
Four games are slated in the Canadian International Hockey League this week after which it will break for Christmas holidays.
The action begins tonight when the first-place Batchewana Attack plays host to the second-seeded Espanola Rivermen in a 7 p.m. clash at Rankin Arena.
The Attack has a special promotion scheduled for tonight in which all elementary school students will be admitted free if accompanied by an adult.
The remainder of the week features the Kalkaska Rhinos as the busiest team in the CIHL. The Rhinos — who split a pair of non-conference games with the Illiana Blackbirds of the Minnesota Jr. Hockey League last weekend — head to northern Ontario for three games this week.
Kalkaska is at Espanola for a 7:30 p.m. game on Friday before heading to Sudbury to take on the Royals in a 3:45 p.m. matinee match on Saturday.
The Rhinos then wrap up the three-game road trip — and CIHL play until the New Year — when they visit Rankin Arena to play the league-leading Attack on Sunday afternoon an 2 p.m.
Sunday’s game between Kalkaska and Batchewana at the Rankin will feature a discounted admission price of $5.
What you think about “Pre-Christmas week in the CIHL”
There was major bad blood in the game at Espanola. Should be interesting to see how things go tonight in Batchewana.
