Rockford, Ill.- The Rockford IceHogs, proud members of the American Hockey League and top affiliate of the National Hockey League’s Chicago Blackhawks, announced that they are hosting an Alumni Game on Saturday, Nov. 12 before the IceHogs game against the Peoria Rivermen presented by Dental Dimensions.
The Alumni Game will take place at 3:30 p.m. at the BMO Harris Bank Center, and the IceHogs Alumni will take on a team comprised of Chicago Blackhawks Alumni. Fans with tickets to the IceHogs contest against Peoria at 7:05 p.m. that night can gain early entrance to the IceHogs Alumni Game.
Tickets for the IceHogs Alumni Game go on sale on Thursday, Sept. 8. Tickets can be purchased on the Web at icehogs.com beginning at 9 a.m. or by phone at (815) 968-5600 and in person at the BMO Harris Bank Center Box Office starting at noon.
Members of the IceHogs Alumni team will be announced through the IceHogs Facebook page at facebook.com/rockfordicehogs. Beginning today, a clue will be posted on the IceHogs Facebook page for each of the IceHogs Alumni scheduled to participate in the game. The first fan to correctly identify the player will receive two tickets to the game on Nov. 12 and a puck autographed by that alumni.
Both the IceHogs Alumni and current IceHogs will wear throw back jerseys on Nov. 12 as well. The jerseys will be the sweaters that the IceHogs wore beginning in the team’s inaugural season in 1999 through the 2003-04 campaign. Both sets of jerseys will be auctioned off through a blind silent auction with all proceeds benefiting the IceHogs Charitable Foundation.
