The Mudbugs are officially back and you've got plenty of chances to see them in action next month.

After a delayed NAHL season finally began a couple of months ago, we still had to wait months later than usual to see out Mudbugs in person. Finally, two and a half weeks ago, the Shreveport Mudbugs made their return to George's Pond.

Four home games in two weeks, in front of a sold-out crowd (by COVID-19) standards. The 'Bugs certainly put on a show to the 1,550 fans allowed inside the area, winning three out of four games, with all four going to overtime. In three out of four games, the Mudbugs fell behind early and clawed back in true Shreveport hockey fashion.

The games themselves were an absolute breath of fresh air for myself and the thousands who came through the doors at George's Pond. For us in Shreveport, we haven't been able to experience anything quite like that since Mardi Gras back in February. The crowds, the party, the excitement, the friends, all coming together when we needed it the most with the Shreveport Mudbugs.

I don't know about you, but I've been going crazy waiting on a return to something that feels somewhat normal.

The Mudbugs are currently enjoying as little holiday break before gearing up for what's sure to be a busy January.

The Mudbugs will play twelve games in total next month, with seven of them taking place in front of the home crowd at George's Pond. Six of those games will be played on our typical game nights, being Friday and Saturday, and one game will be played on a Monday.
