KALAMAZOO, MI – The Kalamazoo Wings, proud ECHL affiliate of the National Hockey League’s Vancouver Canucks, announced Monday an exciting addition to the club’s promotional calendar. The K-Wings are extending the team’s world famous Green Ice game to a second date due to popularity.

A very limited number of tickets remain for the team’s originally scheduled Green Ice game, presented by Southern Michigan Bank and Trust, Saturday, Mar. 14 versus the Cincinnati Cyclones at 7:00 p.m. at Wings Event Center.

Now, Kalamazoo’s game against the Newfoundland Growlers on Friday, Mar. 13 at 7:00 p.m. will also be played on Green Ice, as part of Green Ice Weekend.
