The Sudbury Wolves will kick off the New Year at home Dec. 4 when the Brampton Battalion make their way to the Nickel City for the third time this season.

The division rivals are currently deadlocked in a 2-2 tie in the season series. The game will also be a sneak preview of a renewed northern rivalry, as the Battalion will be moving to North Bay next season.

Wolves fans are encouraged to come out and cheer loud in a Northern Battle of the Fans as The Fox and North Bay will be sending four buses to Sudbury for the game.

The Battalion are led up front by rookie standout Blake Clarke, who has posted an impressive 30 points to date this season.

Game time is 7:35 P.M.

Tickets for the game can be purchased at the Sudbury Arena Box Office or by calling 705-671-3000.

The Wolves will head on the road to Mississauga for a 2 p.m. matinee contest against the Steelheads on Jan. 5.

Call-up forward Colton Spicer will be unable to play for the Wolves this week after he contracted a flu virus which kept him from skating in the Dec. 29 practice and the Wolves’ weekend home games.

The Fort Frances youngster will return home to rejoin his junior team for the balance of the season.
