The Evansville Thunderbolts are sticking around for a game on Saturday night as well, which will be Frontline Heroes Night, where the Storm want to thank those who worked the frontlines of the pandemic last year.

"As hockey returns, we want to recognize all of the individuals who have worked tirelessly to keep life moving forward during the pandemic," the team wrote in a presser. "We want to provide a special thank you to our local medical employees who have been nothing short of heroic and are a big reason we, the Storm, are able to return to play this season."
