OMAHA – What better way to get ready for the University of Nebraska at Omaha’s (UNO) first hockey game at the new Baxter Arena? UNO’s Criss Library will replay UNO’s very first hockey game Saturday, Oct. 17, at 1:30 p.m.
The event is free and open to the public.
The watch party will take fans back to Friday, Oct. 17, 1997, when the Mavericks hit the ice in Omaha’s Civic Auditorium. The exhibition game against the University of Manitoba was sold out.
Hockey fans watching Saturday’s replay will be able to check out Mavericks memorabilia from that night, including a game-worn jersey, photographs and programs.
