Utica, N.Y. - The Utica Comets held a party for season ticket members at the Adirondack Bank Center, Wednesday, with the regular season just over one week away.
At the party, fans were able to pick up their tickets and got some merchandise as party favors.
They got to skate on Aud ice, and had a Q & A with Carter Bancks and head coach, Trent Cull.
There were also drink and food specials at 72 Tavern & Grill.
It was a special night for fans to gather before the season begins, and the fans are ready for some hockey action.
"I can't wait, we're excited about all the young players coming in," said season ticket member, Dan Brindisi. "My wife and I are both season ticket holders...we've had season tickets for about five years now so we're excited about this team for sure."
"My signs are ready, my voice is ready, I've been cheering for two weeks at soccer games. I'm ready," said season ticket member, Gwen Hershman. "It's like coming home after a vacation."
The Comets kick-off the regular season on Friday, October 5, at home against the Toronto Marlies.
