Get ready for the Flint Firebirds
July 24, 2015
First games to be played are about six weeks away for the new Flint Firebirds of the Ontario Hockey League.
The Michigan-based Firebirds — who are the relocated Plymouth Whalers — will take to the ice for the first time on September 3 with an intra-squad scrimmage at the Polar Palace Arena in nearby Lapeer.
Tickets are $10 for general admission seating and proceeds will be split with the Lapeer County Youth Hockey Association.
The Firebirds will then begin their OHL exhibition slate on September 4 when they visit their in-state rivals, the Saginaw Spirit.
The Firebirds regular-season home opener will be on September 26 at the Dort Federal Credit Union Event Center in Flint.
