There are plenty of great things to look forward to during this time of year. Apple picking, pumpkin patches, and corn mazes are great, but if you’re a hockey fan, we know that the thing you’re looking forward to the most is the start of the new season. Now that we’re already a few weeks into fall, the 2021-22 AHL season is almost here, so it’s time to get excited! The first game of the season is quickly approaching, and it’s time to make sure you’ve got your tickets in order. Our first game of the season is October 16th against the Lehigh Valley Phantoms right here at the Mohegan Sun Arena.

Nothing beats the excitement that fills the arena on opening night and the wait is almost over. Will you be there to help cheer us on? Here are a few things you can look forward to at the big game.

We all look forward to spending a night out with family and friends, and many plan other events around the game. Maybe you want to go out to dinner before or after the game and make a whole evening out if. There’s plenty to do in the area, so getting tickets to the game and seeing some of the other attractions helps make it even more special.
