In their inaugural Federal Hockey League season, the Dayton Demonz have quickly moved to dominate their rivals, rocketing to a No. 1 position with a 12–2 record that includes a 7–0 home streak. The squad has skated to victory behind the efforts of the league's top two scorers, Jason Hill and Brayden Metz, who together have racked up 61 points over 14 games. On the other end of the ice, the team's two goalies, Gerry Festa and Jeff Rose, keep the net empty with the zeal of a superhero butterfly, boasting a 0.924 and 0.915 save percentage, respectively. Fans can watch the low-friction heroics and high-friction fights while enjoying such promotions as $1 beer night on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Though the Dayton Demonz offers a discounted price for children and seniors, this Groupon is still the best deal available.
What is now an entertainment palace that plays host to such acts as the Rolling Stones and Neil Diamond, hockey games, and monster-truck showdowns was once a peaceful fruit orchard. As family-oriented then as it is now, the Hara Complex sprouted from the landscape first as the Wampler Ballarena, a dance hall erected in 1956. Today, the complex includes six buildings spanning than 165,000 square feet, with the dance hall serving as the cornerstone, four exhibition halls, a main arena, and an onsite golf course allowing musicians to warm up their voices by yelling “Fore” over and over again.
When the Demonz joined the Federal Hockey League before the start of the 2012–13 season, they didn’t waste any time making an impact, claiming a regular-season championship during their inaugural campaign. The team’s brief but brilliant history has already included some of the league’s brightest stars—none of whom, no matter how talented, can surpass the fame of skeleton mascot Bonez, who bounces around Hara Arena delivering high fives to demonstrate the virtues of a diet rich in calcium.
