Round 4 of the NZIHL will be so packed with awesome hockey that it’s going to expand over two weeks, and better yet, it’s all about the rivals!
Starting with the Skycity Stampede hosting the Dunedin Thunder, the Queenstown club will be itching to play the home opener in front of their rowdy fans where the 2017 championship banner will be hanging proudly – alongside their banners for 2015 and 2016.
Meanwhile up North, the reinvigorated Botany Swarm will welcome their crosstown rivals, the West Auckland Admirals, with a fierce competition at The Hive that sees the NZHIL’s top-two teams battling it out.
This is where you will find all the game day coverage:
Over on the NZIHL Twitter we will have highlight plays from all three games posted as GIFs so you can quickly and easily relive any of the big action. And make sure you’re following the NZIHL on Instagram (@nzihl) for game prediction polls where you can select who you think will win.
Round four will be live streamed on the NZIHL’s official YouTube channel with recap videos posted on Facebook later on – and we’ve been given word that this will include the Swarm/Admirals game at Spark Arena when the league raises the curtain for USA v Canada at the 2018 Ice Hockey Classic.
Please note: Live streams are provided as a free service to the fans thanks to the tireless efforts of each teams’ volunteers. If you’re interested in getting involved, please contact your local NZIHL team. Live streams are subject to change without notice.
