Upper Valley hockey fans have something to look forward to this week. On Friday, Talkeetna will play host to the three-time East Coast Hockey League champion Alaska Aces. According to a statement by the team, the Aces will arrive by rail on Friday along with the ECHL trophy, the Kelley Cup. The team will spend the day touring the town, and will hold a photo session with the cup at 5:00 pm in the Talkeetna Village Park. The trip is a joint effort by the Alaska Aces and the Alaska Railroad Corporation.
