Cold weather marks the start of the hockey season, and the Syracuse Crunch is back at the War Memorial for the home opening game where they’ll go head-to-head against the Charlotte Checkers.
“It’s an exciting group again this year, I mean obviously we are coming off a division championship which we are celebrating tomorrow night,” said Crunch broadcaster Lukas Favale. There are lots of returning players to the team, as well as, new additions which will make for a promising season. The Crunch will be raising its 2018-2019 North Division Champions banner ahead of the game and fans in attendance will receive mini banners courtesy of Upstate University Hospital.
Profits from the evening will benefit the Golisano Children’s Hospital as the Crunch celebrate the hospital’s 10th anniversary. Patients and nurses from the hospital will be featured during the opening ceremony.
The puck drops at 7pm at the War Memorial in downtown Syracuse. To purchase tickets or for more information, visit SyracuseCrunch.com.
