CHL Friday's Allen/RGV Game Postponed

January 20, 2011 - Central Hockey League (CHL) News Release

TEMPE, AZ (January 20, 2011) -The Central Hockey League, in conjunction with the Rio Grande Valley Killer Bees and the Allen Americans, announced today that Friday's game between the Killer Bees and the Americans (CHL Game # 334) has been postponed due to mechanical failure within the ice-making machinery at the State Farm Arena.

A makeup date will be announced in the very near future.

Friday's game was to be the first of back-to-back games between the two Berry Conference teams. Saturday's game is still scheduled as planned with a face-off time of 7:30 PM (CST) at the State Farm Arena.

"Postponing the game was our last and final option and one we hoped to never have to reach however having a safe ice surface for the players is paramount," Killer Bees General Manager Dan Belisle said. "We are already working with the arena, league, and the Americans to find a suitable date to play the game."
