The Missouri Mavericks hockey team begins their home season against the Denver Cutthroats on Saturday at the Independence Events Center. The first 1,000 fans at the home opener will receive cowbells, to be used as noisemakers to help drive the team to victory. The team finished fifth last year in the Central Hockey League.
