The Colorado Eagles return from a four-game road trip to face
the Wichita Thunder Friday night at the Budweiser Events Center at
7 p.m., then the New Mexico Scorpions Saturday at 2:30 p.m.
Prior to the game against the Thunder, they will be unveiling a
“retro jersey” that offers a vintage look to replace their current
home white jerseys that have red and blue trim.
The Eagles front office announced in a press release that
Saturday’s match against the Scorpions is also the first
“White-Out”, where all fans are strongly encouraged and urged to
wear all-white shirts.
“We are encouraging fans to do this for our televised games,
because it looks great on camera,” said Eagles’ Vice President Eric
UPN 20 is providing the first televised game in Eagles history
Saturday afternoon against the Scorpions. They will use the help of
Media Tech Productions, which produces all Eagles’ home games.
“We hope the ‘White-Out’ will bring a sense of community, while
starting a new tradition at the same time,” said Eagles’ owner
The Eagles are currently first in the Northwest Division and are
second overall in the Central Hokey League.
After finishing a four-game road trip 2-2, the Eagles return to
Colorado touting the top two scorers in the league. Right winger
Greg Pankewicz is first with 42 points, left winger Ryan Tobler is
second with 40 points and center Riley Nelson is fifth with 35
What is amazing, however, is the fact that all three players are
on the same line.
“Stewy (coach Chris Stewart) does a good job with us,” Nelson
said. “He always gives us the confidence we need to play well.”
The Eagles are now 15-7-1 and look to continue their success on
home ice by collecting their 10th and 11th home wins at the new
Budweiser Events Center, where they are 9-2.
