On the eve of its first road trip of the season, the Dells Ducks continued its work on special teams as well as general preparations for a four-game getaway starting Friday.
The Ducks will get one last morning workout on Thursday (Sept. 9) and hit the road around lunch time for the long drive to the Motor City. The schedule will see the Ducks playing twice on Friday – at 11:30 a.m. EST against the Metro Jets and then play Detroit Fighting Irish Friday evening. Exact start times will be updated as the weekend gets closer.
There are two options for anyone wanting to follow the Ducks on the weekend. First, the games will all be at Southgate Civic Ice Arena in Southgate, Mich. The Fighting Irish will be offering all games on Facebook live using this link — https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100005720651138 or anyone with Facebook Live can follow along on that as well.
Following this weekend series, the Ducks will begin preparing for its USPHL regular season opening weekend on home ice as they host the Rum River Mallards Sept 17-18. The team will play its first eight games of the season on home ice.
