MILWAUKEE — Milwaukee Admirals President Jon Greenberg announced today that the team will move their game time on Saturday, January 11 to 1 p.m.
The Admirals were originally scheduled to take on the Rockford IceHogs at 6 p.m., but because of the impending winter storm and the associated effects, the team has moved the game to earlier in the afternoon.
“The safety of our fans, players, officials, and staff are always our foremost concern,” said Greenberg. “The weather forecasts indicate that there will likely be a lull in the snow early in the afternoon so we will take advantage of that. This allows people to drive home in the daylight as well.”
