There is no place like home.

The No. 3 Icecats will make their first appearance at the Tucson Convention Center in a month this weekend when they face Marquette in a two-game series.

Both games start at 7:30 p.m. and will be broadcasted by KTKT (AM 990).

The Icecats (19-6) just completed a monthlong road trip that included stops at Arizona State, Illinois, Colorado and Colorado State. The Icecats were 5-2 on the trip.

The series is the second-to-last for Arizona before the American Collegiate Hockey Association Championship tournament starts Feb. 27 on the campus of defending champion Ohio.

The Icecats will be without the services tonight of goalie Joel Hilshey, who injured a hamstring muscle during a game last weekend with Colorado State. Freshman Eric Holton will take Hilshey's place. Holton was in the net during Arizona's 7-3 loss to the Rams on Sunday.
