"The Puck Hog" is a children's book featuring a fictional youth hockey team named the Crunch. The story focuses on Eddie, a puck-hogging teammate who only cares about his own stats. A team trip to a Syracuse Crunch game and a pivotal moment on the ice leads to kids learning about the importance of teamwork and unselfishness.
The Crunch continue their season-high seven-game road trip with a 7:05 p.m. match-up at Binghamton on Friday, Jan. 7 at the Broome County Veterans Memorial Arena. Syracuse returns home to The Oncenter War Memorial Arena on Jan.15 for a 7:30 p.m. contest vs. rival Rochester. Season and single-game tickets for the 2010-11 season are on sale and can be purchased by calling the Crunch office at 473- 4444, or by stopping by the Crunch office at The Oncenter War Memorial Arena, located at 800 South State Street in downtown Syracuse.
