The Kalamazoo Wings swoop into the end of the 2012 regular season with their crosshairs fixed on a return to the Kelly Cup playoffs, where they captured the Eastern Conference title a year ago. As the ECHL affiliate of the New Jersey Devils and Vancouver Canucks, the talented roster of future stars once again sits poised for a deep postseason run, having racked up 78 points in 66 games thus far. Winger Darryl Bootland leads the red, white and blue offensive flurry with 24 goals alongside center Trent Daavettila, whose team-best 52 assists double as a veritable highlight reel of swift passes, stunning one-timers, and helping elders cross the ice’s busy intersections.
Frugal Fan Friday nights at Wings Stadium accompany K-Wings games with $1 hot dogs, Pepsi products, and beer. In between supersonic slap shots and bone-clattering collisions, game-goers can browse the stadium’s lineup of concessions (not included with this deal), including memorabilia shops stocked with Wings gear and unclaimed players’ teeth.
Wings Stadium plays host to more than just board-slamming checks during the Kalamazoo Wings' home hockey games. On select days, the 8,023-seat venue opens its frozen confines to amateurs interested in all sorts of winter sports. Skaters of all ages can glide across the smooth ice during open-skating sessions, and members of the Kalamazoo Curling Club practice and face off throughout the fall and winter. On weekend nights, hockey fans can bring their own skates to a K-Wings home game and finish their night skating and checking the ice for lost incisors.
