IceDiggers and Black Bears plan exhibition

The Alpena IceDiggers are kicking off 2006 with an exhibition game against the Northern Michigan Black Bears on Monday, Jan. 2 at 7:00 p.m. at the Northern Lights Arena.

“With this game, our team and the fans will be able to see what teams from the (Northern) Ontario League play like,” states Alpena coach-GM Kenny Miller. “There are good players coming out of that league and we would like to see how we match-up. An exhibition game like this one is exciting for us, and also brings an excitement for the fans to see us go against a team from just over the bridge.”

IceDigger fans are encouraged to bring canned goods in order to purchase discounted tickets. Just $5 and two canned goods will get fans in the door. Season ticket holders that attend will have a free entry to the game with the donation of two canned goods as well. All canned goods will be donated to the St Bernard’s Soup Kitchen in Alpena. Those who do not bring any canned goods will pay $9 for adults and $7 for students and seniors. Children 4 and under are admitted for free.
