ROCKFORD, Ill. – The Rockford IceHogs today announced that four specialized jerseys from Saturday’s Autism Awareness Night will be available for online bidding on the IceHogs’ eBay store beginning tonight, Jan. 29 at 7 p.m.
The 2018-19 Autism Awareness Night jerseys feature the Hammy crest imprinted on the chest and the autism puzzle-piece logo as a repeating pattern throughout the design. The jersey itself is black with red piping, and both the arms and midriff include painted handprints in a variety of different colors. Each of the three player jerseys are also game-worn and autographed, and will include a certificate of authenticity.
The online auctions can be accessed via the IceHogs’ eBay Store and include:
- Game-worn, autographed jersey of Alexandre Fortin (#26)

Funds from the online auction will then be totaled along with the money raised during Saturday’s live jersey auction, with a portion of the combined proceeds benefitting the Autism Program of Easterseals. Saturday’s live jersey and DASH auctions raised more than $28,000.
