Hockey is coming out of the pandemic penalty box with the K-Wings Home Opener and Orange Ice.

The Kalamazoo Wings will be making up for lost time after missing a year on the ice.  Saturday, October 23rd at 7 P.M. the K-Wings will take on their rivals the Toledo Walleye.  First 1,000 fans through door 7 grab a K-wings 21-22 magnetic schedule, K-Wings branded mask, and hand sanitizer.  The K-Wings will also honor healthcare workers with their "Salute to Scrubs."  Healthcare workers have endured the worst of the worst over the last year and a half.  The Kalamazoo Wings organization wants to show them some love and appreciation while they enjoy some hockey.

One of the most popular games of the year at Wings Event Center is clearly Orange Ice.  Come celebrate Halloween with the K-Wings.  Wearing your costume isn't required but it's encouraged.  In fact, there will be a costume contest for kids and adults.  You may win a $100 Meijer gift card.  The K-Wings will be playing in special Ghostbusters-themed jerseys which will be auctioned off after the game.
