Hurricanes Change Grizzlies, ECHL Schedules

October 7, 2005 - ECHL (ECHL) - Utah Grizzlies News Release

West Valley City, Utah - The Utah Grizzlies, in conjunction with the ECHL, today released a revised schedule for the 2005-2006 season. The revision became necessary when the Mississippi Sea Wolves and Texas Wildcatters suspended operations for the upcoming season following the recent batch of hurricanes that hit the Gulf Coast.

The Grizzlies will still open the season on October 21 at home; however, their first ever ECHL opponent will now be the Phoenix Roadrunners. The Grizzlies will now play a combined total of 22 home games on Friday and Saturdays.

A weekend series has been added for Utah on November 4-5 when they will welcome the Alaska Aces to the E-Center. With the revised schedule, the Grizzlies will play three games in three nights a total of seven times.

Thanksgiving weekend has now become congested. Following a Thanksgiving home game with the Stockton Thunder, the Grizzlies will hit the road for Idaho for games on November 25-26.

Utah will have two seven game home stands (January 11-28, February 3-17) that include a stretch where they will play 14 of 16 games at the E-Center. The longest road trip of the year has been reduced from ten games to nine (February 18-March 4).
