Outlaws claim more victims at home

December 6, 2004 - International Hockey League 2 (IHL 2) - Kansas City Outlaws News Release

The Outlaws improved their record at home to 5-2 with victories over Quad City Mallards and inter-state rival Missouri River Otters. Outlaws play their forth and fifth games of 9-game home stand with upcoming battles against the Fort Wayne Komets on Tuesday, December 7 at 7:00 p.m. and Saturday, Friday, December 10 at 7:30 p.m. against the Missouri River Otters.

OUTLAWS SADDLE UP WITH LOCAL GROUPS FOR MASSIVE CHARITY EVENT

The Kansas City Outlaws announced Monday they are partnering with Kansas City Metropolitan Crime Commission, Negro League Baseball Museum, Kansas City Royals, and NHL Alumni to benefit the Surviving Spouse and Family Endowment Fund (SAFE) and the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum (NLBM). During the game, the Outlaws will wear Kansas City Monarchs jerseys that will bear the names of former Negro Leagues players that will be auctioned off with all proceeds going to the NLBM. The Kansas City Outlaws vs. Muskegon Fury game will be followed by an Alumni game between a team made up of Kansas City Royals Alumni verses a National Hockey League Alumni Team. The Royals jerseys will also be auctioned off, with all of the proceeds donated to SAFE.

ONE OWNER … TWO TEAMS

Will Chillicothe resident Stephen Franke support the Komets, the Outlaws, or both on Tuesday night at Kemper Arena? Either way, Mr. Franke is sure to be in favor of an injury-free game. The owner of Mid West Gloves in Chillicothe, MO is also the owner of both franchises that face each other for the first time in Kansas City. The teams split their first to games in Indiana.

THE BEST FAMILY DEAL EVER

The Outlaws and Back Yard Burgers are offering the Best Family Deal Ever promotion for six games this season. For $13.95, a fan will get a ticket to an Outlaws game, a Back Yard Burgers Combo Meal, and a free Outlaws official game puck. The deal is available for Saturday games on January 8 & 15, February 12 & 19, March 19, and April 2.

OLD FACES IN NEW ROLES

Jeff Madill and Jason Herter, who are former Kansas City Blades and still reside in the Metro, have increased their role with the Outlaws. Thus far, both have helped with coaching and consulting. Now, the two are officially part-time assistant coaches, who will attend most practices and games at home. Herter will coach from the bench on game nights and Madill will act as the eyes in the sky at Kemper Arena, as the hockey minds help Coach Williams and GM Joe Bucchino make this team a winner.

KEMPER ARENA FACT OF THE WEEK:

Since the return of hockey in Kansas City, Kemper Arena underwent its first hockey to soccer changeover on Saturday, December 4. After the Outlaws 1 p.m. contest against the Missouri River Otters, 36 members of Global Spectrum’s operations staff transformed the hockey rink into a soccer field for the Comets 7:35 p.m. start time. The transformation includes laying an insulated floor over the ice, modifications of stairs, changing glass at ends of dasher boards, and the installation of padding and a tarp over certain seats. The changeover process took three hours to complete, as the staff will undertake six more changeovers for Outlaws/Comets doubleheaders on Saturdays before the season’s end.
