As an official ECHL team and an affiliate team of the NHL's St. Louis Blues and the AHL's Peoria Rivermen, the Alaska Aces bring the thrill and excitement of professional hockey to Anchorage's Sullivan Arena. ECHL All-Decade Team honoree Wes Goldie and former NCAA All-American and Alaska native Brian Swanson lead the skate-clad charge as the Aces battle for divisional position with the Idaho Steelheads or against the slap shots of the California-based Ontario Reign. As part of a 1-1-11 promotion, the January 1 game against the Reign will have $1 hot dogs, pucks signed by No. 1 Adam Courchaine, a No. 11 jersey signed by the team, and $1 hair cuts in section 111 of Sullivan Arena. With premium seats on the ice, avid hockey hounds are close enough to catch each goal, count every lost tooth, and settle the question of whether or not pucks cry after slap shots.
