Minot, ND – The NAHL has released the schedule for the 2013-2014 season. Despite some realignment around the league the Minotauros remain in the Central Division with familiar rivals, Austin Bruins, Aberdeen Wings, Brookings Blizzard, and of course the Bismarck Bobcats. The only change to the Central will be the loss of the Coulee Region Chill who move to the newly formed Midwest Division. Though the Tauros do not face the Chill this season they will see plenty of the Midwest with home-and-home match-ups with the Minnesota Wilderness and the Wenatchee Wild; hosting the Kenai River Brown Bears for a pair of games, and heading to Richfield, MN, to play the Minnesota Magicians.
The Tauros will kick off their third season at the 11th Annual NAHL Showcase in Blaine, MN; at which all 24 NAHL franchises will convene for 48 games in four days starting September 18th. It was already announced that the Tauros will face the Corpus Christi Ice Rays, Port Huron Fighting Falcons, Springfield Blues, and the Michigan Warriors. The Tauros will return home to the Maysa for the first time since last season’s playoffs on Friday, September 27th and 28th, for a chance at vengeance against the Austin Bruins who knocked the Tauros out of the playoffs at the Maysa on April 20th.
The Tauros and their fans will get their first look at the hated Bobcats when the Tauros head to Bismarck on October 25th. The Capital Kittens make their first appearance at the Maysa on the following night October 26th for a 8:05 start, after the Minot State Beavers hosts Colorado State and former Tauro Colin Abitz.
