CHARLOTTE — Grab your team jersey and cowbell: The Charlotte Checkers are back on the ice at Bojangles Coliseum.

This season, fans will have plenty of opportunities to see the team on weekend dates. Of the 36 home games, 29 land on either Friday, Saturday or Sunday, including the previously-announced Queen City Outdoor Classic against the Rochester Americans that will be played at Truist Field on Jan. 13.
