Team chairman, Ryan Suter was on hand to sign autographs and took part in a pregame chalk talk for fans. Suter believes it's important to keep juniors hockey in the Madison area.

"I think the community needs juniors hockey." Said Suter. "I think for these kids, when they are younger to give them something to shoot for I think is important. We are going through some growing pains and now I think we are starting to turn the corner and the future is looking bright and it's exciting for us."
