"We are already working with the arena, league, and the Americans to find a suitable date to play the game."
The Killer Bees have not yet announced a new date for the game. Rescheduling information will be available at killerbeehockey.com once it is finalized. Fans can receive a refund by returning to the original point of purchase. Tickets for Friday night's game will be honored on the new date.
