Rockford, Ill. – This weekend will feature giveaways for the young and old as the Rockford IceHogs will be in action for a pair of home tilts on Saturday and Sunday at the BMO Harris Bank Center.
The IceHogs begin the weekend on Saturday with a bout against the Abbotsford Heat at 7:05 p.m., followed by a 5:05 p.m. puck-drop on Sunday against the Lake Erie Monsters.
Saturday’s contest with Abbotsford is Floppy Hat giveaway night as the first 2,500 adults (21 and over) into the building will receive an IceHogs floppy hat thanks to Bud Light.
On Sunday, the team will give away a Hammy toothbrush holder to the first 1,000 kids (age 14 and under) courtesy of Riverside Dental. All fans planning to attend the game are encouraged to bring their ice skates to take part in the final “Skate with the Hogs” of the season. Following the game, fans with skates will be invited onto the BMO Harris Bank Center ice alongside their favorite players. Patrons without skates can still participate in the meet and greet by going to the lower endzone of sections 111-115 to get autographs.
For tickets to any IceHogs game, call (815) 968-5222, visit IceHogs.com or stop at any Ticketmaster outlet or the BMO Harris Bank Center Box Office.
Additionally, at every IceHogs game in 2012-13, Toyota is giving one lucky fan a chance to win a brand new car during the second intermission in the Toyota Showcase Shootout. Fans can sign up to be selected to participate in the on-ice promotion at the U.S. Cellular fan zone located on the main concourse.
