Rockford, Ill. - As the 2012-13 regular season winds down, the Rockford IceHogs are asking fans to help determine the winner of the Fan Favorite Award for the season.
Each season, the organization awards a Most Valuable Player, Rookie of the Year, Best Defenseman, Most Improved Player, Unsung Hero and Man of the Year. New this season, fans can give their input and select a Fan Favorite award winner.
To determine the winner of the award, fans can visit the IceHogs Facebook page (facebook.com/RockfordIceHogs) and cast their vote by “LIKING” the photo of their favorite player. The player receiving the most LIKES on Facebook by Monday, Apr. 8 at 10 a.m. will be selected as the 2012-13 Fan Favorite.
From those who voted for the award winner, one lucky fan will win a pair of tickets to the Hogs regular season home finale and be chosen to present the award to the winning player on the ice before the IceHogs faceoff against the Chicago Wolves.
Next Home Game: Sunday, April 7 vs. Peoria Rivermen at 5:05 p.m. It’s the Hogs 14th annual jersey auction as the IceHogs will don special “Abrahammy Lincoln” jerseys that will be auctioned off following the game. The first 2,500 fans to the game will receive a commemorative Abrahammy Lincoln coin, compliments of Lou Bachrodt.
