The 2019 NZIHL regular season will get underway this weekend for the Botany Swarm as they take on the Canterbury Red Devils from Christchurch.
Games will be played on Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 May at the The Hive (Paradice Ice Rink Botany), with warm up starting at 4.45pm and puck drop at 4.55pm.
These two teams are always fiercely competitive, so there will be guaranteed on-ice action during the coming weekend – early season points are up for grabs and are highly valuable. With the Red Devils coming off a very successful weekend against the West Auckland Admirals last weekend, the two games are going to be hard fought.
Since 2005, these two teams have faced off 50 times with Canterbury winning just over half of these encounters. This season, it’s time to turn the tables and secure game wins with the support of our fans.
