The AHL has released their season schedule for all teams today. I try to get in some Wolves games every year so I can watch the pro prospects in game situations. If you're never been to an AHL game the Wolves always put on a show at home and there are some terrific AHL cities (Hershey PA is my favorite). Here a few possibilities that caught my eye.
Hockey on American Thanksgiving
If you don't care about Thanksgiving Turkey at home and battling the holiday travel hassles Chicago has 3 games in 4 mights at home over the holiday. Thrashers are on the road that weekend.
Tour de Texas
The AHL welcomes a 3rd team to Texas which creates this Lone Star Road trip @ San Antonio (FRI) @ Austin (SAT) @ Houston (SUN)--but that conflicts with two Thrasher home games.
Rock'em Sock'em New Years Trip
Wolves play at home 12-30 then a drivable game a@ Peoria on New Year's Eve and then back home on 1-2. Three games in four nights. Thrashers are on the road.
Olympic Break in Texas
The NHL is off two weeks and the Wolves travel to @ Austin (FRI and SAT) and then @ HOU (SUN).
