Opening Night presented by MGM Springfield - Sat., Oct. 13 vs. LV, 7:05 p.m.
The third season of Springfield Thunderbirds hockey begins on Saturday, Oct. 13 for Opening Night presented by MGM Springfield, which will feature a “white-out” as everyone in attendance will receive a rally towel. For a third straight year, fans will be treated to a pregame Block Party from 3:30 - 6:00 PM presented by Community Bank, featuring a live music performance from Unusually Normal. For the first time, MGM Springfield will play host to the party at their brand-new outdoor plaza. In addition to the customary activities, this year’s event will feature a “premiere-like” feel as the 2018-19 Thunderbirds team will be introduced and featured through a red-carpet entrance.
