Tucson, Arizona – The Tucson Roadrunners, AHL affiliate of the Arizona Coyotes, announced today that tickets for the Saturday, October 7 NHL preseason game featuring the Coyotes and the Anaheim Ducks at the Tucson Arena are on sale now by CLICKING HERE, as well as in person at the Tucson Arena Box Office (open Monday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.). The 3:00 p.m. contest between the Coyotes and Ducks represents Arizona’s final preseason game before beginning their regular season slate on the road against the New Jersey Devils on Friday, October 13.
The Saturday afternoon exhibition marks the second straight year with a Coyotes preseason game at the Tucson Arena, after Arizona and Anaheim faced off last year on September 25, 2022.
