The National Hockey League just wrapped up its season (congrats to the champion Colorado Avalance), so it is the perfect time to start thinking about next season. Our very own professional hockey team, the Evansville Thunderbolts, is already looking ahead to the 2022-23 season. The 'Bolts just released the schedule of next season's home games, which are played at the Ford Center.

How Did the 'Bolts Do Last Season?

I'm not gonna lie, it was kind of a tough season for our boys. They finished pretty much dead even with a record of 28 wins, 26 losses, and 2 ties, which put them in 7th place in the Southern Professional Hockey League (SPHL).

Who's Ready for Next Season?

As you'll see below, the home opener is scheduled for Saturday, October 22, at 7pm. That will be followed up by the annual Education Day Game, when the Thunderbolts welcome thousands of school kids to the Ford Center, on Tuesday, October 25 at 10am. All games are Central time, by the way. There will of course be several fun promotional nights throughout the season - that schedule will be announced soon.

See How Downtown Evansville Has Changed Over the Years

I find looking back on the way things used to be fascinating. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad I'm living through the current time period. The conveniences of answering any question we have in seconds, or ordering practically anything we want or need and having it delivered to our doorstep is pretty sweet. But, there is something fun about seeing how things around us have evolved. As an Evansville native, and spending quite a bit of my time in downtown Evansville (that's where the station is located), I've always appreciated the older architecture of the buildings around the area. So, I dug into the Willard Library Archives to see how a few of those areas look now compared to then. Some have changed a little, others quite a bit, and a few don't even exist any more. Take a look.
