Knighthawks Release New Schedule

The Knighthawks will open the season at home on Saturday, January 10th against the rival Philadelphia Wings at 8:05 p.m. at The Blue Cross Arena. Rochester was originally slated to open at Chicago on Saturday, December 27th and then return home on January 10th to battle the Shamrox.

The new added date is Saturday, April 3rd in Colorado and then the team flies out to Calgary for a game on Sunday, April 4th. The next weekend, the Knighthawks are at Buffalo on Saturday, April 10th and at Boston on Sunday, April 11th as originally scheduled.
