In news that comes as no surprise at all, the Amerks two pre-season games will be against the Syracuse Crunch. The teams aren’t even in the same division anymore so we can’t say division rivals. Thruway rivals maybe?
The teams will play a home and home series with two games in three nights. The first game will be Sunday September 27th at the ESL Centre in Henrietta at 6pm. The second game will be Tuesday September 29th at the OnCenter in Syracuse at 7pm.
Supposedly a third road game could also be in the works.
General admission tickets for the game at ESL will be announced in the coming weeks.
The Florida Panthers end their pre-season games on September 23rd before they head to Finland to start the season overseas. It will be interesting to see who they bring on the trip with them and who gets sent down early to get to training camp here in Rochester. It’s expected that Keaton Ellerby, Jason Garrison, Michal Repik, and Shawn Matthias will be working hard to try and earn a full time roster spot.
