TUCSON, AZ – The Tucson Roadrunners, proud American Hockey League affiliate of the Arizona Coyotes, officially shared details today for the club’s 2018-19 home opener.
On Saturday, October 6 the team will face the San Diego Gulls at Tucson Arena with puck drop set for 7:05 local time.
The Pacific Division rivalry series, which was officially established prior to last season, places the two sides competing against one another for the “I-8 Border Trophy”. Tucson claimed the award last season by registering a 7-4-0-1 record against the Gulls, totaling a score of 15-10 in points.
