The Casper Coyotes Junior Hockey team has announced the 2016-17 season schedule. This season kicks off with exhibition games this weekend versus the Colorado University Buffaloes at the Casper Ice Arena. The puck drops this Friday, September 9th at 7:30 pm and again on Saturday, September 10th at 5pm.

The Coyotes will also be hosting a tailgate BBQ this Saturday from 1-4pm in the parking lot outside the Casper Ice Arena, sponsored by Western Distributing and Coors light.

The Casper Coyotes will open the season at home against their arch rival the Ogden Mustangs the weekend of September 23-25.

Coach John Ambrefe is excited and thinks his players this season are better than last year's team that was eliminated in the playoffs.

The 2016-2017 Casper Coyotes are big, fast and talented. Grab your friends, wrangle up the family and come support the home team this weekend at the Casper Ice Arena.
