Meijer Family Bulldog Hockey Nights Are Back For The 2008-09 Season
The Ferris State University Athletics Department and Meijer will again be teamming up to sponsor family hockey nights for the 2008-09 Bulldog men's ice hockey season.
A total of nine Meijer Family Hockey Nights will be held during the 2008-09 campaign with the next one scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 1, versus Lake Superior State. Opening faceoff is set for 5:05 p.m. (EDT) at FSU's Ewigleben Ice Arena in Big Rapids, Mich.
The remaining six Meijer Family Night outings to be held this regular season are Nov. 21 against Alaska, Dec. 5 versus Notre Dame, Dec. 12 against Alabama-Huntsville, Jan. 9 versus Western Michigan, Jan. 17 against Ohio State, and Jan. 30 versus Nebraska-Omaha. All of those contests will start at 7:05 p.m. (EST) with the lone exception being the Jan. 17 tilt versus Ohio State, which will get underway at 5:05 p.m. (EST). All except Alabama-Huntsville are Central Collegiate Hockey Association (CCHA) games.
The cost for each family hockey night is $32 which includes four tickets to the game, four sodas and two bags of popcorn.
