The puck is just about to drop on a new era for Missoula's ravenous hockey fans, and we think you're going to love it.

The Missoula Jr. Bruins will make their home debut this Friday night, September 30, 7:30 at the Glacier Ice Rink, Western Montana Fairgrounds.The Helena Bighorns are coming back to Zoo Town!

Thanks to awesome community support, the rink has a new look for a new team. New seating and sound. The new Big Sky Bruins Den, serving local beer from the Big Sky Brewing Co. New owners and family-oriented promotions and events. And some old things, too. Like the fierce Montana rivalries in the North American 3 Hockey League, including teams from Helena, Great Falls, Bozeman and Billings.

The Jr Bruins have a lot of home games coming up in the next month, so you'll have a chance to get acquainted with coach Marcus Baxter's exciting new team. Tickets will be available at the door, or in advance at Hockey Wolf, located at 1010 North Avenue West here in Missoula.

So get jacked hockey fans. The excitement never went away!   DB
