Monday Monthly Preview – December
Monday Monthly Preview – December 2021
Howdy Railers fans! Cam McGuire here checking in… I hope everyone enjoyed a nice weekend with some beautiful weather and the return of NFL football. We are one week closer to the return of hockey and are now just 40 days away from Opening Night on October 23! In the past two weeks, we previewed what the months of October and November will look like on ice for the Railers.

We’re going to see a whole lot of the Maine Mariners and the Reading Royals during the month of December; the Railers will take on the Mariners six times and the Royals five times. To put things into perspective, Worcester will play Maine a total of 14 times and will play Reading 13 times during the regular season. That means nearly half of the contests will come in the month of December. Because of the cancelled season last year, the Railers were not able to host their annual Teddy Bear Toss game. Instead, the team hosted a socially-distant drive-thru event. This season, the Teddy Bear Toss presented by Fidelity Bank will return to the ice on Dec. 11 when the Railers host Maine. All teddy bears will be donated to the Friendly House of Worcester. The Railers will also be wearing New England Football themed specialty jerseys for that game. Here is how the Railers have faired in December the first three seasons:
A great stretch of hockey is in-store for the month of December but for now, we can’t wait to see everyone back at the DCU Center in October. Opening Night is just 40 days away! ICYMI, last week we announced the hiring of our new Assistant Coach, Jason Franzone. Tomorrow, we’ll share my interview with Jason on this week’s episode of Cam’s Corner.
