Plus, the ECHL (the third rung league on the #5 sport in the USA) doesn't exactly scream "come see us" Taking the game to other rinks within driving distance of the home rink lets people know about your team and the game. Then there is a much better chance of people actually going to Wheeling to see a regular game.

They'e played at Iceoplex, Kirk Nevin in Greensburg, and Harmar Bladerunners for exhibitions in the past. It'll be interesting to see if they can outdraw the Xplosion at Mellon Arena.
