By: Nate Haeni
03/24/2011 9:59 AM - Rockford, Ill. – Another promotion-packed weekend is on the slate for the Rockford IceHogs on Friday and Saturday at the Rockford MetroCentre.

The IceHogs open the weekend by hosting the Hamilton Bulldogs on Friday, March 25 at 7:05 p.m. The first 2,500 fans past the gates will receive an IceHogs gym bag courtesy of Kanga Roof, Members Alliance and Comcast.

Cylinder 6, a rock band from the Chicago area, will entertain fans before the game, during intermissions and briefly following the contest.

The Hogs will also honor the 15-time state champion Rockford Icemen with a ceremony before the game. The Icemen took their 15th straight championship with a 4-0 win against Waubonsie Valley in the finals of the AHAI/Blackhawk Cup High School Combined Varsity Division on Thursday, March 17.

On Saturday, the IceHogs close out their 10-game season-series with the Milwaukee Admirals. The puck drops at 7:05 p.m. The first 2,500 fans into the building will pick up an IceHogs dry erase board compliments of Rock Valley College, FOX 39 and BOB FM.

The IceHogs will also break their all-time attendance record on Saturday. The mark was set in 2009-10 when the IceHogs saw an average of 3,978 fans pass through the turnstiles each game, totaling 159,132 on the campaign. This season 153,539 fans have come out to the MetroCentre to cheer on the IceHogs with four home tilts remaining in the regular season.
