After months of preparation and plenty of anticipation, the night is finally upon the Rochester Americans and the Lake Erie Monsters to play an outdoor game at Frontier Field in Rochester.
The event, fittingly called the Frozen Frontier, is set to kick off with pregame festivities at 5:00 p.m. including live music, food, drinks and merchandise all in a heated tent.
The game, set to face off at 7:05 p.m., features two teams within a point of each other in the standings, who are both looking to keep pace in the conference. The Amerks, who are currently in eighth place with 26 points are hoping to keep Lake Erie in two spots back with 25 points.
For those interested in attending the game, some tickets are still available. The weather calls for some snow showers with the wind chill making it feel roughly five degrees Fahrenheit.
After the game, fans will be able to enjoy fireworks at the stadium and then head to a post-game after party at The Distillery, a local restaurant and bar where there will be Amerks alum as well.
This is the first time the Amerks will be playing an outdoor game. Despite the fact that this is the only AHL game outdoors, this game is one of many that will be played at Frontier Field over the next two weeks. From college, to juniors, to high school, Frontier Field will host an array of games.
