Attention all UNLV Skatin’ Rebels fans:

Come join the team for a Sunday skate on January 8 at City National Arena to kick off the New Year.

The event will feature a player meet and greet from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m., followed by an hour and a half public skate (1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m.). The cost to participate is $5 with skates and $10 to rent skates.

“My four years we’ve never gotten the opportunity to do this and I love our fans. So anytime that we get the opportunity to interact with them and maybe get to know them on a more personal level is great,” team captain Hunter Muzzillo said. “I know that there are so many people out there who support us… so to thank them for their continued support as we push towards winning a national championship is exciting, and we’re all looking forward to it.”

The public skate will include the screening of Mighty Ducks, along with Rebel Hockey merch for sale.

Don’t miss out on the chance to meet UNLV’s players and staff at the annual Skate with the Rebels before the team returns to action on Jan. 13-14 on the road against the Arizona Wildcats.

“We have some phenomenal young men on our team who want to meet you and come from all of these different places,” Muzzillo said, “and I’ll tell you from personal experience, the guys in this room are a heck of a time they’re hilarious. They’re personable, they’re fun to be around. So I don’t think a single person who comes out to this event would be disappointed.”

Tickets can be purchased on Sunday in-person at City National Arena.
