Ferris State and Meijer To Host Bulldog Hockey Family Nights

The Ferris State University Athletics Department and Meijer will once again be combining efforts to sponsor family hockey nights for the 2009-10 Bulldog men's ice hockey season.

A total of eight Meijer Bulldog Hockey Family Nights will be held during the 2009-10 campaign with this season's initial one commencing this Friday (Oct. 16) versus Connecticut at FSU's Ewigleben Ice Arena in Big Rapids, Mich.  The series finale on Saturday (Oct. 17) between the two teams has also been designated as a Meijer Bulldog Hockey Family Night.

The remaining six Meijer Family Night outings to be held during the 2009-10 regular season are Oct. 23-24 against Robert Morris, Dec. 4 versus Nebraska-Omaha, Dec. 12 against Western Michigan, Feb. 6 versus Northern Michigan, and Feb. 26 against Western Michigan. All Bulldog hockey regular-season home contests this campaign to be held on Fridays will commence at 7:05 p.m. (ET).  Those home games scheduled for Saturdays will drop the puck at 5:05 p.m. (ET) with the exception of the Jan. 23 outing against Michigan and the Feb. 6 tilt versus Northern Michigan.  The opening faceoff for those two matchups are 8:05 p.m. (ET) and 7:35 p.m. (ET), respectively.  All except Connecticut and Robert Morris 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. Meijer Bulldog Hockey Night coupons are presently available at the Big Rapids Meijer and the coupon can be redeemed at the Ferris State University Athletics Ticket Office 24 hours prior to each game's starting time. The offer is only redeemable for the following Bulldog home hockey contests listed above.
