DULUTH, Ga. – The Atlanta Gladiators announced on Wednesday the full details for the preseason Intrasquad game at the Duluth IceForum on Sunday, October 7th at 5:00 pm.
The game will feature two rosters made up entirely of Gladiators players. The teams will play two normally timed periods of 20 minutes followed by an extended 3-on-3 overtime session and shootout, regardless of the score. After the game has concluded, the entire team will take part in an autograph session for the fans in attendance.
“We want one last chance to see the guys on our roster play, while at the same time creating an entertaining event for the fans,” said Head Coach Jeff Pyle. “It should be a really fun experience for all involved, but don’t expect the guys to take it easy. We have fierce competition for spots on our roster which is going to lead to some great and intense hockey.”
As in year’s past, the game will be an opportunity for ticket holders to pick up their ticket cards for the upcoming season. Entry to the event will be a $5 donation to the SIHA Foundation to help youth hockey coaches education. Doors will open at 4:00 pm for those looking to get their ticket cards early and purchase new merchandise that will be set up on the main lobby of the IceForum.
