The Syracuse Crunch announced the Frozen Dome Classic on Wednesday, a tripleheader of hockey taking place in the Carrier Dome on November 22nd.
The tripleheader will feature a charity game between the police and fire crews of Syracuse and Utica, followed by a Division III hockey game between Oswego State and Utica College, all culminating in rivals Syracuse Crunch and Utica Comets battling in the headline game.
Syracuse Crunch owner Howard Dolgon and defenseman Joey Mormina stopped by the CNY Central studios after their press conference on Wednesday, speaking about the unprecedented event. On CBS 5, Dolgon talked about the toughest part of making the game happen, and why he always looks to do something bigger and better for his Syracuse Crunch franchise.
On NBC 3, Joey Mormina talked about playing in big-time atmospheres, and that playing in the Carrier Dome would rival any venue he's played in during his professional hockey career. Dolgon mentions that he's impressed and pleasantly surprised with the interest in the game since the announcement was made, saying he's even heard from people in California interested in it.
Tickets for the game range from $20 to $50, and will go on sale at 10 a.m. on June 24th.
