ANCHORAGE, AK – The Alaska Aces and Idaho Steelheads played a physical and tight checking affair at Sullivan Arena in Anchorage Saturday night, in a game Idaho won 3-1.  But the collisions on the ice was not the only bone-jarring incident of the night.

At 1:30 Alaska time this morning, the Anchorage area was rocked by a magnitude 6.8 earthquake. The quake’s epicenter was 160 miles southwest of the city.

Shortly after the quake, players took to twitter to share their experience:

The Alaska Dispatch News reports there were no reports of significant damage or injuries from the tremblor. Several aftershocks, up to a magnitude 4.5, have been reported in the region in the hours after the initial jolt.

Idaho and Alaska play the final game of a three-game weekend set this afternoon at 3:05 Alaska time. Lets hope they got some sleep after that experience.
