2022-23 PROMOTIONAL SCHEDULE

Bigger and better – that’s the mantra for the Erie Otters on the ice in 2022-23, but also the organization’s approach to the forthcoming season’s Promotional Schedule.

After an all-but-normal season in 2021-22, the Otters are thrilled for normality to return, and for a season of celebration, honoring, and all-new fun. From the return of fan-favorite promotions, to new and unique nights never before done in Erie, this season truly has something to fit everyone’s taste.
