NAHL releases schedule, 2 new teams come to play Jr. Blues

The Springfield Jr. Blues have their schedule in hand as of June 17, 2011, when the NAHL released the entire schedule. I pored through it to pull out the Home Game dates for the Jr. Blues as well as a smaller schedule of when the team will be playing the Kelly Chase-owned St. Louis Bandits at the Hardees Iceplex in Chesterfield.  It looks like the Jr. Blues will be playing St. Louis 12 times this year.  Hopefully there won't be an ungodly drubbing by the Bandits this year like last year's series.  New opponents this season include the Coulee Region Chill from Wisconsin and the Kalamazoo Jr. K-Wings.  For the complete (and I do mean complete) NAHL schedule, go here.  The Jr. Blues home games at Nelson Center in Springfield (and their games vs. St. Louis in Chesterfield) are after the jump:

  • 9/10/11, 6pm
  • 10/7/11, 7pm
  • 10/8/11, 6pm
  • 12/3/11, 6pm
  • 12/17/11, 6pm
  • 1/13/12, 7pm

These dates and times were extracted from the NAHL master schedule available publically on its website.  They're subject to change.  I'm not part of the Jr. Blues staff or office, so please don't take my word as the authoritative one on when the games will start.  No word as yet as to what the ticket prices might be or the season ticket costs.  Last year's prices were $7 per adult ticket, $150 for season tickets.  I'm just want more people to show up to games during the year is all.  Packing the house every night would be a beautiful thing, especially as it's one of the longest-running sports teams in the area.

So, uh, is it hockey season yet?  How about now?  Now?  Is it hockey season now?  Maybe now?  Oh, come ON, hockey season!  Hurry up and get here!
