Buy one full mezzanine endzone season ticket, get one for $31

Rockford, Ill.- The Rockford IceHogs are extending the special “Niemi Saves” Pack sale to 5 p.m. on Thursday, July 1.

The “Niemi Saves” Pack is a full-season package for the IceHogs’ 2010-11 campaign, their fourth as the primary developmental affiliate of the Blackhawks.  Buy one mezzanine endzone season ticket at full price and get an additional seat for just $31 by calling (815) 847-6399.

The offer is valid only for new season ticket holders and is not available when combined with any other offer.

The price is set to recognize former IceHogs goaltender Antti Niemi, who wore No. 31 with Rockford and also wears it with the Chicago Blackhawks.

Niemi spent the majority of the 2008-09 season with the IceHogs, finishing with a 18-14-3 record in 38 games.  He earned a spot with the Blackhawks in training camp this season en route to a 26-7-4 record in the regular season and a 16-6 record in the Stanley Cup playoffs.

Ten former IceHogs played for Chicago in the Stanley Cup Finals as they beat the Philadelphia Flyers in six games earlier this month.
