The second-ranked Sun Devils take on a Top 25 opponent, but also find the time to help some local youth
The Arizona State hockey team remained unbeaten last weekend with a sweep over San Diego State, in which the Sun Devils outscored the Aztecs by a combined 22-3 margin.
That performance was enough to keep ASU ranked No. 2 nationally in the latest ACHA polls. ASU is now a perfect 9-0-0 on the year, and boast three scorers among the ACHA's top 25 in Kale Dolinski (17 points), Danny McAuliffe (17) and captain Colin Hekle (16).
Looking to continue their undefeated ways, the Sun Devils will take to the ice for two games this weekend, beginning Thursday night when the host Eastern Michigan at 8:30 p.m.
The Eagles are currently 23rd in the rankings with a 3-5-0 record on the year, although they do have some momentum, coming off a sweep of Western Michigan last weekend. EMU has a pair of talented scorers in forwards Nick Taurence (16 points) Bryan Kozlowski (13), but have struggled on defense and in goal.
While Sun Devil Nation should head out to Oceanside Ice Arena in Tempe to cheer on their team, they can also help make a difference in the lives of some special kids.
Starting tonight, October 25th, and running through every home game until Christmas, fans can receiver two-for-one admission to a game with a donation of a new and packaged toy valued at $10 or more. These will be given to the kids recovering at Phoenix Children's Hospital, so come out, enjoy some top-flight hockey and brighten the holidays for a child.
