Come check out new players and veterans alike as they fight for a spot on the opening day roster! On August 27, two sessions will be open to the general public: a hour morning skate at 10:15am and an afternoon hour skate at 3:15pm.

August 28th features the Storm’s first game action as they take on the Whitecourt Wolverines in an exhibition game at Revolution Place! Doors open at 6:30pm  and the puck drops at 7:30pm.

On September 5th and 6th, the real deal gets underway. The Storm will face the Bonnyville Pontiacs for a double-header home opener! Gametime is 7:30pm for both nights. If you’re a hockey lover and you need to get your hockey fix as soon as possible this year, then you’ll definitely want to take part in this late-summer hockey action in Grande Prairie.
