When the Chicago Wolves host the home opener of their 25th anniversary season at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 13 at Allstate Arena, they’ll face the Grand Rapids Griffins.
This marks the sixth time Grand Rapids has served as the Wolves’ opponent for the home opener — more than any team other than the Milwaukee Admirals (seven times). The Griffins recently hired Ben Simon, a member of the Wolves’ 2002 Calder Cup championship team, as their head coach.
The Wolves will celebrate their silver anniversary throughout the 2018-19 season. The rest of the team’s 76-game American Hockey League schedule and 2019 Calder Cup Playoffs details will be released Wednesday.
