Post-game skate in Alpena Saturday

Following Saturday night's game between the Alpena IceDiggers and the Marquette Rangers, the IceDiggers will host a free post-game skate with the players.

Face off is set for 7:00 p.m. Any fan in attendance can lace up the skates and enjoy a public skating session with their favorite IceDiggers player.

"This a fun way for all of our fans to get up close and personal with their favorite player and enjoy going out on the ice and skate with the boys," said Alpena head coach Kenny Miller.

Ticket prices for the remaining home games are $10 for adults (18 - 61), $8 for seniors (62 +), $6 for students (13 - 17 with photo ID) and $5 for kids (12- under).

Northern Lights Arena will have skates available for fans that do not have their own skates to rent for only $3.

The IceDiggers (23-13-3, 49 point) currently sit in third place, two points behind Mahoning Valley (24-10-3, 51 points).

The IceDiggers will travel to Marquette on Friday for a 7:30 p.m. contest before returning home for Saturday's game.


Erik Peterson, Jimmy McCusker and Isaac Viau will suit up for the North Division team in February at the NAHL Prospects tournament in Ann Arbor.

"I am very proud of these three guys," Miller said. "They have earned the right to represent us in Ann Arbor. There were several guys that could have represented us down there."
