We are just hours away from the first puck drop at the Frozen Frontier. Tonight the Amerks will host the Lake Erie Monsters in the opening game of the 10-day ice event.
We caught up with the Amerks at their first practice on the outdoor rink at Frontier Field. Captain Matt Ellis says his team is acting like a bunch of kids at a candy store -- ready to get the outdoor game started.
The Frontier Field gates open at 5 p.m. for a pre-game party with food, drinks and music. The game starts at 7 p.m. tonight.
