IceHogs will set franchise attendance record this weekend
Rockford, Ill. – Just two games remain on the Rockford IceHogs 2013-14 regular season schedule this season. The IceHogs will set a new attendance record on Friday to kick off the two-game set.
For tickets to Friday or Saturday’s games call (815) 968-5222, visit IceHogs.com, or stop by the BMO Harris Bank Center or any Ticketmaster outlet, including Walmart.
The IceHogs host the Chicago Wolves at the BMO Harris Bank Center on Friday night at 7 p.m. The first 1,500 fans to the BMO will receive an IceHogs Beach Towel courtesy of Peak Fitness.
The contest will be the final Illinois Lottery Cup contest of the season series with the Wolves holding a narrow one-point lead over the IceHogs. If the game ends in regulation, the winner will win the 2013-14 Illinois Lottery Cup.
Also, OSF Saint Anthony Medical Center will be in attendance with one of their da Vinci robotic surgical systems and will allow kids to play a game using the system. Children will be competing against the score of Hammy and the highest scorer will win four tickets to the IceHogs 2014-15 season opener.
