The Arizona Sundogs drew a houseful of fans to their season opener Friday night, Oct. 16, 2009 at Tim's Toyota Center in Prescott Valley. The Sundogs have taken three losses in their first three games of the season, but Central Hockey League opponents have outscored them only 10-6. The Sundogs opened regular season play by hosting the expansion team Allen (Texas) Americans.
Friday's loss was only the fourth time the Sundogs have been held scoreless in their four-year history. Stew Schrauger of Natural Visions Photography shot these photos of the action on opening night.
