The Roadrunners return from the road to open a six-game home stand at the Tucson Arena beginning Friday, January 20, against the Bakersfield Condors. Tucson is facing off with the AHL affiliate of the Edmonton Oilers for the fourth time this season, after they last met less than a week ago on Saturday, January 14, a 4-3 Roadrunners shootout win. Friday’s series opener represents the first El Lazo de Tucson Night of the season, with the Roadrunners debuting new El Lazo alternate jerseys and Mascot Dusty appearing as “El Polvo” for the game. In addition, the Roadrunners will be hosting a pregame Hockey 101 Session of Roadrunners Rules for fans that are new to the game of hockey.
