The Sudbury Wolves are gearing up for their third exhibition game at home, when the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds road into town Sept. 5 for a tilt at Sudbury Arena.
Puck drops at 7:30 p.m.
The Friday family game night will showcase a preview of what is to come for the Sudbury Wolves and the 2014-2015 Ontario Hockey League season, the team said today. The Wolves will be looking to rebound after they fell to the North Bay Battalion this past weekend.
Saturday, the Wolves hit the road for the first time to face off in a rematch with the Greyhounds at the Essar Centre at 7:07 p.m.
The first regular season game is at home once again, with the Pack looking to take a bite out of the Niagara IceDogs on Sept. 26 at 7:30 p.m.

Muzyka played for the Sudbury Nickel Barons Jr. A team last season while Moylan played goal for the Strathroy Rockets Jr. B team.
The Wolves now have two goaltenders remaining in camp, including 16-year-old Troy Timpano and 19-year-old Sam Tanguay. Timpano played for the Sudbury Wolves last season while Tanguay played for the Kingston Voyageurs Jr. A team.
Along with the two goaltenders, the Wolves also have nine defencemen and 15 forwards in camp.
