Illinois State Redbird Hockey Releases 2014-2015 Home Schedule
How can the Redbird Ice Hockey team outshine their 2013-2014 performance that resulted in their second consecutive trip to the ACHA National tournament, a 30-8-1 record and #12 national ranking? That’s an easy answer really…by beginning their transition to DI hockey and celebrating the club’s 45th year on campus. Originally established in 1969, Redbird Hockey has experienced decades of sustained success. During October 3-5 the team will be inviting all alumni back to campus during Illinois State University’s Homecoming 2014 celebration. “The Illinois State Redbird Hockey team has a rich and storied tradition,” said Coach Brian Corley. “We are all excited to acknowledge our alumni and celebrate with all our fans during an incredible weekend of activities.”
While the 45th anniversary will be a milestone, the regular season slate will provide a great challenge. Included are 14 home games at US Cellular Coliseum and 5 at the Pepsi Ice Center. Game highlights include their first home game versus a DI opponent with Colorado State visiting on October 5. Theme nights this year will include Military appreciation day, kids’ day, a Halloween costume contest, and ISU Greek night. Another special event is the 2nd annual Teddy Bear toss on November 20. Fans are encouraged to bring an unwrapped stuffed animal and toss onto the ice after the first Redbird goal. Last year, more than 400 teddy bears and toys were collected for McLean County’s Toys for Tots program.
Individual game tickets and season passes for the general public will be available starting August 15th at 11 a.m. Student tickets are $5 and adults are $10. Purchase tickets at the U.S. Cellular Coliseum Box Office, all Ticketmaster outlets including ISU’s Braden Box Office, and select Walmart locations, online at www.ticketmaster.com, or by calling 1-800-745-3000. *Convenience charges may apply.
