The McKinney Warriors of the North American Tier III Hockey League (NA3HL) will take the ice for its home opener Oct. 12 to take on the Sugar Land Imperials at the Dr. Pepper Starcenter, the league has announced.
McKinney’s inaugural season will begin a night earlier, Oct. 11, when they make the trip south to Sugar Land.
The Warriors will play the cross-town rivals, the Dallas Jr. Stars, for the first time Nov. 1 at the Starcenter in McKinney.
With just 45 days until the puck drops on the 2013 season, the Warriors’ organization rounded into shape last week, with the announcement of additions to the coaching staff.
The Warriors added former Stanley Cup Champion Steve Dykstra and Central Hockey League veteran Erik Adams to the coaching staff earlier this month.
Both will join head coach Jack Ramsay behind the behind the bench. General Manager Reggie Hall said earlier this month the club will be holding try outs Sep. 7 and 8 at the Dr. Pepper Starcenter in Farmers Branch.
