SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Dakota News Now) -The Stampede have already played 3 games and are in Lincoln Friday night. But their home opener is Saturday at the Premier Center.

And for one of the rookies it will be extra special because he grew up here and was the team’s biggest fan. Easton Zueger will lace it up as a defenseman for the Stampede and he can’t wait to actually be playing for his home town team. Easton Zueger says, ”I’ve never been on the inside of the glass, I’ve always been the guy on the outside watching and I love that spot. I loved watching, cheering, supporting. But I can’t began to think what it’s going to feel like going through those doors on Saturday with that jersey on ready to go to battle with these guys.”

Easton and Zeb Knudson are the only kids who grew up in Sioux Falls to play for the Stampede. And Easton was really excited for the opportunities it will present down the road for yesterday’s announcement of Division One hockey at Augustana. But for now, he’s most excited for that home opener in front of friends and family playing for the team he grew up cheering for.
