Last Sunday, March 17, the K-Wings raised just over $13,330 for Buy Local through the St. Patrick’s Day jersey auction. The special green jerseys were auctioned off on the ice after the game in the last live auction of the season for K-Wings jerseys. The proceeds will be donated to Buy Local to support their efforts in the Kalamazoo community.

Central Division Update:

The K-Wings won both games last week pushing their point total to 72 points. Kalamazoo currently holds the fourth and final playoff spot in the Central Division while holding a four point lead on Indy who sits in fifth. One spot ahead of the K-Wings in third place is Fort Wayne who has racked up 74 points. Cincinnati has already claimed the division title, while also clinching a playoff spot. Toledo, who sits in second, has also clinched a playoff spot. Kalamazoo’s magic number to clinch, based off Indy’s maximum 80 points, sits at nine points heading into the week.

All On The Road:

With seven games left in the regular season the K-Wings will play each remaining game away from Wings Event Center. The K-Wings kick off the final stretch with a four game in five day stretch taking on all divisional foes traveling to Fort Wayne, Indy, Toledo and Wheeling. After Sunday’s game in Wheeling Kalamazoo will play the remaining three games against non-divisional foes. Kalamazoo finished the home portion of the regular season with a record of 20-13-1-2 at Wings Event Center. The team is currently 14-14-1-0 away from home.
