Hockey fans can find temporarily relief from the NHL lockout this weekend as the Cape Cod Bluefins visit the Martha’s Vineyard Arena to host the Danville Dashers on Saturday night, Nov. 24. The puck drops at 6 p.m.
The Bluefins, who play in the single-A Federal Hockey League, last played at the arena in February. Vineyard varsity boys’ hockey assistant coach Max Sherman and JV coach Mick Vukota suited up for the team on one-game contracts in the Bluefins’ close 4-3 loss to the Danbury Whalers.
Although Mr. Sherman and Mr. Vukota will not play in Saturday’s game, the event does feature some local talent: the Martha’s Vineyard Mites will play a five-minute exhibition game between the first and second periods, and the Martha’s Squirts will play between the second and third.
Tickets are $18 and can be purchased at the arena office prior to the game or at the door on game night. Three dollars from each ticket sale will be donated to the arena.
