Rockford, Ill.- Fans will have an opportunity to win $10,000 this season during home Wednesday games with the Rockford IceHogs at the Rockford MetroCentre. The IceHogs on Thursday announced details of the “Golden Goal” promotion.
During all nine Wednesday home games during the 2009-10 regular season and the IceHogs regular season home finale on Saturday, April 3, fans can register to win $10,000 with the “Golden Goal.” If the IceHogs score a score with 9:10 on the clock (for the ’09-10 season) in the third period, then one lucky fan will walk away with $10,000.
Fans can register at the game and must be present to win the prize. All entries must be submitted by the second intermission and one fan will be picked at random. Sign up will be located at the U.S. Cellular Fan Zone located in the MetroCentre’s upper concourse.
