Rebels Win First College Game in T-Mobile Arena!
October has arrived and the Tucson Roadrunners have the keys to their new offices and arena, new locker room and are slowly building a roster that seems ready to compete in the American Hockey League. With a brand new office building just steps from the newly renovated arena, Roadrunners management is beginning to feel comfortable and with the Arizona Coyotes trimming their training camp roster, the coaching staff is prepared to officially begin the Roadrunners first ever preseason.
The first year franchise will be loaded with talent from the goaltending tandem of Aiden Hill and Marek Langhamer to an aggresive defensive corp. Offensively the Roadrunners will feature a speedy and gifted lineup including some of the Coyotes last cuts and ptential first call ups during the 2016-17 season.
Behind the bench a pair of Mark's Lamb and Hardy will be the men in charge of putting the talented roster on paper into a cohesive team on the ice. The Roadrunners will have two road preseason games before opening night on the road in San Diego.
