Normally, minor league hockey season is wrapping up right about now. But with the pandemic pushing the start of the season back, things are just now heating up at Cable Dahmer Arena, where the Kansas City Mavericks are making a late-season push for the playoffs thanks to a strong April from veteran forward Darik Angeli.

The Mavs became the longest-running hockey club in the city’s history this season, and they’ll honor the past record-holder on May 15. On that night, the game against the Allen Americans team from Texas will be the Blades Tribute game. In addition to special jerseys for the Mavs, the gamegoers will be able to buy a limited edition Charlie Hustle T-shirt honoring the Blades.

If you want to get in an appropriately nostalgic mood for some Blades memories here’s a highlight reel of vintage minor league hockey fights for your enjoyment.

GO: Blades Tribute night at Cable Dahmer Arena, 19100 E. Valley View Parkway, Independence. 6 pm. Tickets $12-$40.
