Playoff Hockey This Weekend, Bring The Kids

Aston, PA – Looking for affordable fun for the entire family on Friday? Just over the Delaware state line in Aston, Pennsylvania the Aston Rebels will take to the ice against the Wilkes-Barre Scranton Knights.

The Flyers might be done for the season but Aston Rebels of the North American Hockey League are just getting started.

The Rebels won their second straight East Division championship, and they won the NAHL’s regular season crown. The best-of-five divisional semi-final series kicks off this weekend against the Wilkes-Barre Scranton Knights. Friday and Saturday night the puck drops at 7pm, and all games are played at the IceWorks Skating Complex in Aston, PA.

Tickets are currently available at or by calling (888) 637-6523. Tickets also can be purchased at the door on game day.

The North American Hockey League serves as the only USA Hockey-sanctioned Tier II Junior League. It also is the oldest junior league in the country. The primary goal of the Rebels, and the league itself, is to assist aspiring 16 – 20 year olds in their quest to achieve their goal of a better education through collegiate hockey. The Rebels work tirelessly to assist these young men in becoming better people, family members and citizens. Last year the Rebels had 12 NCAA commitments. The Rebels have seven NCAA commitments to date this season.

The league serves as an incredible opportunity for families to share their love of hockey with their children at affordable prices. Joe DiMarino, Director of Marketing for the Aston Rebels, explained what makes attending Rebels playoff games so fun for the whole family saying, “The Rebels are affordable fun for the entire family with ticket prices only being $7 plus there is FREE parking. However, the Rebels are more than just the highest level of junior hockey on the East Coast. The Rebels also are an event fans won’t want to miss – including the light show or the chance of catching a FREE tee-shirt. There are mites on ice games, tricycle races, puck shootouts, wing eating contests, Chuck-A-Puck, $1 hot dog nights and more! Plus, our general admission ticket system allows for kids to get extremely close to the action and the players on the ice are providing playoff intensity that can’t be seen anywhere else in the region.

According to DiMarino:

The Flyers sell tickets at an average rate of $70. The Rebels can accommodate a family of five for less than that price.
Families can get there early for great seats, all seats are first come, first serve.
There is FREE parking
