WHEELING, WV -

The Wheeling Nailers, ECHL affiliate of the Pittsburgh Penguins and Montreal Canadiens, will play two exhibition games this fall at WesBanco Arena.

The 2013 preseason will begin as the Nailers will play host to the Elmira Jackals. That game with the Atlantic Division rivals will take place at 7 p.m. Oct. 5. This will be the first preseason contest between Wheeling and Elmira, who have met 57 times in the six seasons since the Jackals joined the ECHL. Elmira currently holds the all-time lead, 35-22, but the Nailers have a 14-13 edge at home.

Wheeling's second home preseason game will take place at 7 p.m. Oct. 9 when they play the North Division's Fort Wayne Komets, whom the Nailers defeated in both of their head-to-head meetings during the 2012-13 campaign. Longevity will be the theme for this battle, as Wheeling enters its league-leading 22nd season in the ECHL, while Fort Wayne enters its 62nd season of existence. 

The regular season begins on Oct. 18 at WesBanco Arena against Elmira.
