The team is hoping to pack the stands at Lane County Ice for its final home stand of the season, against Portland State University. The UO team's seniors will be honored for their four years of dedication to the team.

Faculty and staff must present their UO ID cards at the ice rink's ticket office. A hundred extra free tickets will be available for the family members of faculty and staff on a first-come, first-served basis. Tickets can be reserved by contacting Garrett Rogers at

Ticket prices for the general public are $2 for students, $5 for adults and children under 12 are free.

Lane County Ice is located at the fairgrounds, at 796 13th Ave., in Eugene.
