AMARILLO BULLS RELEASE 2012-2013 SCHEDULE
AMARILLO, TX – What will the third season have in store for the Amarillo Bulls in the North American Hockey League? It won’t be long before Bulls’ fans know the answers to that question.
The Bulls released their 2012-2013 schedule today (Tuesday) that will feature 60 games including the first four to be contested at the 10th annual NAHL Showcase in Blaine Minnesota in early September.
Once the showcase has concluded, the Bulls will play 28 home and 28 away games that will largely be played on Friday and Saturday nights. There are two Sunday games and one Thursday game.
“I am very pleased with the make-up of this years’ schedule,” said Bulls General Manager Chris Laurie. “The home and away games are well-balanced throughout the seven-month season with the bulk of them falling on weekends. Fans can expect another very competitive hockey season with lots of fun promotions at our home games!”
A night of celebration for the Amarillo Bulls and their fans will take place on Saturday, Sept. 29 when they host the Odessa Jackalopes in the third home opener. Game time at the Budweiser Bull Pen in the Amarillo Civic Center is set for 7pm.
Other highlights on the schedule include the Bulls heading to Odessa for a pair of games on Thanksgiving Holiday Weekend (Nov. 23, 24), while the 2nd annual New Years’ Eve game is set for Monday, Dec. 31 versus the Wichita Falls Wildcats at 7 pm.
The first time fans will see the rival Texas Tornado will be on Friday, Oct. 26 and Thursday, Oct. 27. The Bulls will renew one of the best rivalries in the NAHL with the Topeka RoadRunners for the first time on Friday, Nov. 2 and Saturday, Nov. 3. The Corpus Christi IceRays will be in Amarillo for the first time on Saturday, Dec. 1 and Sunday, Dec. 2, while on Sunday, Dec. 9, the Bulls closest geographic opponent, the Wichita Falls Wildcats, will be in the Texas Panhandle.
“Another notable change is we have the weekend before Christmas off this year, so the guys will enjoy an extended holiday break at home with their families,” added Laurie.
The Odessa Jackalopes, Topeka RoadRunners, Texas Tornado, and Corpus Christi IceRays visit Amarillo total of six times each, while the Wichita Falls Wildcats will visit Cal Farley Coliseum four times.
