The Missouri Mavericks play their next seven games at home at Silverstein Eye Centers Arena, beginning this weekend with back-to-back-to-back matchups against the Indy Fuel at 7:05 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 4:05 p.m. Sunday.

The Fuel’s head coach is Scott Hillman, who was the first head coach in Mavericks franchise history, from 2009 to 2013.

MILNER RETURNS

Goaltender Parker Milner has been returned on loan to the Mavericks by the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, the Mavs’ American Hockey League affiliate.

Milner, 25, has played 12 games for the Mavericks this season and appeared in five games for the Sound Tigers.

GOING PINK

The Mavericks will wear special pink jerseys on Saturday to promote awareness of women’s health. The jerseys will be auctioned off after the game. Proceeds will benefit Hope House, a longtime community partner of the Mavericks. It offers refuge and support to women affected by domestic violence.
