Arizona State, Boston University to play Gila River Arena on Jan. 26

Arizona State has announced that the series-opening game against Boston University on Friday, Jan. 26, will be moved to Gila River Arena in Glendale, Ariz. – the home of the NHL’s Arizona Coyotes.

Puck drop is still scheduled for 7:05 p.m. local time.

“I think it’s our responsibility to allow as many local fans as possible the chance to see such great hockey, and with the demand of our fans wanting to see us play such a historic program like BU, we felt this was the right thing to do,” said ASU coach Greg Powers in a news release.

Season ticket holders and fans who already purchased their tickets to the game will be offered seating similar to their respective ticket at Oceanside Ice Arena. Fans who already purchased a ticket to the game at Oceanside will be relocated at no additional charge.
