The Bees are Ready to Rumble!!!
Tomorrow night is the night! Battle Creek, the wait is over. Pro hockey comes back to our town downtown. It’s a hockey happening at The Rink Battle Creek. Tomorrow night the Rumble Bees make history as they take the ice in a FPHL franchise debuting clash against their fellow West Division rivals, the Danville Dashers at The Rink Battle Creek. It’s the opening game of a two-games’ weekend series between the two teams, with both bouts set for 7:35 pm on Friday and Saturday nights. Under the direction of Head Coach Clint Hagmaier, the first edition franchise is one of four new expansion teams to be unveiled this weekend. The other trio of teams include the Columbus, GA River Dragons, Danbury Hat Tricks and Delaware Thunder. The Rumble Bees have been placed in the FPHL (Federal Prospects Hockey League) West Division where they will vie and compete with the likes of the defending League Champions, Carolina Thunderbirds, Columbus, Danville and Port Huron Prowlers. The East Division for the 2019-20 campaign will be comprised of Danbury, Delaware, the Elmira Enforcers, Mentor Ice Breakers and Watertown Wolves.
