CLEVELAND, Ohio — It’s opening weekend for the Cleveland Monsters as they kick off their season in a game against Rockford.
The AHL’s defending Calder Cup Champions will begin with a celebration tonight before the puck drops at Quicken Loans Arena.
The first 10,000 fans to arrive at the Q will get a replica Calder Cup championship banner. Doors will open at 6 p.m. and a special pregame ceremony will begin at 7 p.m.
A new Calder Cup Championship flag will be flying outside the Q, and the new Cleveland Monsters’ white primary uniforms will debut tonight, too.
Warm-ups begin at 6:30 p.m.
Moments. Memories. Monsters
