Fall is here, and the Spokane Chiefs hockey season is in full swing. The Chiefs just broke a three-game losing streak with a 3-2 shootout win over the Seattle Thunderbirds Tuesday night in Kent, WA. With big changes in the roster this season, a bit of a rocky start was no surprise. As head coach Don Nachbaur said in a September 19 Spokesman Review article, “We have a young ‘D’ and there’s been a lot of turnover on our back end, so that’s going to take some time to sort that out. As they get experience, they’re going to get better.” With the first month under their belts, there is plenty of time for the Spokane Chiefs to have a great season. Hockey games are a fun way to cut loose and get noisy with family, friends, or a date.
There are some great events coming up at Chiefs home games. This Saturday, October 18, get to the game early for Leinenkugel’s Hocktoberfest, an Octoberfest style festival outside the Spokane arena that starts at 4:00 p.m. with German-themed food, drink, and entertainment. Leinenkugel will also be giving away a weekend in Leavenworth. This event is, of course, for fans 21 and over only. Saturday, November 1, is another don’t-miss game night, as the first 5,000 fans will receive a team poster and all fans are invited to a full-team post-game autograph session. On Sunday, November 3, you can come watch the Spokane Police take on the Sheriffs on the ice before the Chiefs game, with proceeds benefiting Behind the Badge. These are just a few of the many special promotion nights. For the full 2014–2015 promotional schedule, click here.
