The Adirondack Thunder has announced its promotional schedule for the 2017-18 season.
The Thunder’s 2017-18 home schedule, which consists of 36 home games, will begin on Saturday, Oct. 14, as the Thunder take on the Brampton Beast at Cool Insuring Arena at 7 p.m.
Opening Night will feature a magnet schedule giveaway as well as an outdoor party on the plaza to kick off the Thunder’s third season, the first that the Thunder will open at home.
The season will feature additional giveaways, including a Capital Region Hockey poster (Oct. 20), a Bill Dineen magnet banner (Dec. 9), a Christmas ornament (Dec. 23), a 2017-18 team poster, presented by Glens Falls Printing (Jan. 27), a youth jersey, presented by Glens Falls Hospital (Feb. 24) and a green Thunder T-Shirt (March 17).
“We’re excited to introduce our first promotional schedule as new owners of the Adirondack Thunder that features new themes, giveaways and some other special events,” Adirondack Thunder President Jeff Mead said. “We’re especially thrilled to honor the legendary Bill Dineen with a night of his own as he rightfully takes his place in the rafters of Cool Insuring Arena. Bill has contributed so much to our area and has earned the honor of being only the second individual to have his name in the rafters.”
Giveaway sponsors and additional giveaway nights will be announced closer to the season, team officials said.
