When the Roanoke Rail Yard Dawgs came to Roanoke in 2016, no one knew what to expect. Would the city embrace ice hockey, or would the team go unnoticed? Well, to say Roanoke has embraced the home team would be an understatement. Ticket sales have gone up year after year and the city has shown a true passion for ice hockey. If you’ve yet to catch one of the games in person, now is the time. The Roanoke Rail Yard Dawgs will be at the Berglund Center on March 22, 23, 29, and 30, and tickets start at $9.
The Rail Yard Dawgs Are Here to Stay
If you’ve been waiting to see if the Rail Yard Dawgs are going to stick around, you don’t have to wait any longer. The team has proven it’s here to stay. Rail Yard Dawgs’ owner Bob McGinn just signed a three-year lease at the Berglund Center, proving the team is as committed to Roanoke as the fans are to the team.
The team has also been making some plans to bring a championship home to the city. After finishing in eighth place last year, they went out and recruited some new players. These new players are going to help the Rail Yard Dawgs continue to get better.
It’s already clear the team is working well together. They might not be sitting on top of the standings yet, but they’ve shown signs of promise. They are reading defensive changes better and gaining some power on offense. These changes have made the team even more fun to watch.
