Are you ready for some HOCKEY?

Boy, it sure does seem like this summer took forever. Maybe it was just the oppressive heat making it feel that way. The ACHA starts their season in September, and if you are a southern state, well, you are still having to wear tanktops to the rink and not exactly wanting to wear a hockey…

The good news however is that games in Arkansas and Texas are easy enough road trips! The Sooners season begins on…

Mid-Season report: WCHL

It’s that time of year for Season’s Greetings, blinky lights, cookies, and good cheer. For ACHA hockey fans, it’s a time of loneliness and withdrawals.
