Mudbugs Head to Mississippi for Preseason Tilts

October 8, 2010 - Central Hockey League (CHL) - Bossier-Shreveport Mudbugs News Release

BOSSIER CITY, LA - The Bossier-Shreveport Mudbugs will be in action this weekend in Southaven, Mississippi for a pair of preseason bouts against the Mississippi RiverKings at the DeSoto Civic Center. The games at 6:05 pm Saturday and 3:05 pm Sunday will mark the third straight year the two teams have faced-off in the preseason.

Some of the 23 players in Bossier-Shreveport's training camp will use the games as opportunities to fine-tune their skills as they get back into game shape, while others will be looking to prove that they deserve a spot on the club's 19-man season opening roster next week.

The 'Bugs and 'Kings will then open the regular season against one another next week in a home-and-home series starting at 7:05 pm next Friday at the CenturyTel Center and concluding next Saturday back at the DCC.
