The Erie Otters of the Ontario Hockey League today announced their preseason schedule.

September 6 in St. Catharines, the Otters will play the IceDogs for a second time in the preseason. The exhibition schedule concludes September 9 in Elmira, Ont. when the Otters will skate against the Owen Sound Attack.
