ANCHORAGE -

The ECHL's incumbent champion will be hosting the league's newest franchise during exhibition play.

The Alaska Aces, who captured their third Kelly Cup championship a month ago, announced that the expansion Indy Fuel will travel to Anchorage for preseason games on Tuesday, October 7th and Wednesday, October 8th.  As always, the games are the featured component of the Aces' 8th annual "Paint The Rink Pink" fundraiser.  The teams will skate on pink ice as money raised from the games will benefit the fight against breast cancer.

Last season, the Aces split a pair of exhibition games against the Cincinnati Cyclones, who they ended up facing in the Kelly Cup Finals.  The Indy Fuel will be entering the ECHL in the new Midwest Division,
