Checkers game in Norfolk postponed

Per AHL release...

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. ... The American Hockey League has announced that tonight’s game between the Charlotte Checkers and the Norfolk Admirals (AHL #637), scheduled to be played at Scope Arena in Norfolk, Va., has been postponed due to impending inclement weather.

The game has been rescheduled for Tuesday, March 4th at 7:15 p.m. ET. The Admirals have announced that tickets for tonight will be honored on March 4, or can be redeemed for a ticket to any remaining home game during the 2013-14 regular season.


Weather reports are predicting somewhere between five and eight inches of snow in the hours leading up to what would have been game time.

The Checkers are planning to take their bus back to Charlotte later today and then fly to Lake Erie on Thursday to begin what is now a four-game road trip.

The postponement is the first for the Checkers this season, while the Hurricanes have had to reschedule games twice already this month.
