Alex Ackerman recaps the start of Syracuse’s season, with a specific emphasis on the organization’s 29th Home Opener on October 22. She highlights the tenacity and grit the 2022-23 edition of the team has showed so far, including the performances of newcomer Felix Robert, and veterans Daniel Walcott, Darren Raddysh and Alex Barre-Boulet. Alex breaks down the sights and sounds of the packed home opener for the organization, including a description of the opening hype video and how the Crunch highlighted their relationship with the Tampa Bay Lightning. She describes how the team emphasized their ties to the community with their player introductions, and the touching ways the team incorporated their players’ children into that part of the night.
Alex then takes a look at the team’s upcoming three weeks, including their potentially challenging trip down to Charlotte. The Checkers are doing very well so far this season. She also shines a light on the Crunch’s upcoming Pink in the Rink night, as well as the other events the team has planned during that time period.
