Tuesday, Sept. 30: 10:30 a.m. – Team Lindsay; Noon – Team Howe; 2 p.m. – Griffins
Wednesday, Oct. 1: 10:30 a.m. – Team Lindsay; Noon – Team Howe; 2 p.m. – Griffins
Thursday, Oct. 2: 10:30 a.m. – Griffins; Noon – Red Wings
Friday, Oct. 3: 9 a.m. – Griffins; 10:30 a.m. – Red Wings

The Griffins’ first practice in the Grand Rapids area is slated for Tuesday, Oct. 7 at 11 a.m. at Griff's IceHouse, when they’ll ramp up preparations for the season opener in Cleveland on Saturday, Oct. 11 against the Lake Erie Monsters.

After playing their first three games on the road, the Griffins will make their 2008-09 Van Andel Arena debut on Saturday, Oct. 25 against the Hamilton Bulldogs at 7 p.m. Single-game tickets for all 40 home games are now on sale at all Star Tickets outlets, including the Zone and Meijer stores, or online, while group, full-season and mini-plan ticket packages are available by calling the Griffins at (616) 774-4585.
