Alexandria Blizzard ready for home opener at RCC
The Alexandria Blizzard will get a team on its home ice for the first time this season on Saturday as Granite City comes to the Runestone Community Center for a 7 p.m. drop of the puck after opening the weekend with a game in Breezy point tonight.
The Lumberjacks are the top team in the West Division through the early portion of this season with a 6-2 record and 12 points. Alexandria is 3-1 with a chance to make an early statement against a perennially strong team in Granite City.

Drake Hunter has a team-high seven points in just four games for Alexandria. Tom Schmidt, Mick Dhein, Aaron Ryback and Jody Randall are also off to fast starts with six points apiece.
