Rockford, Ill.- All members of the Rockford IceHogs Runt’s Club are invited to the annual “Skate With The IceHogs” on Monday, Jan. 7 from 6-7:30 p.m. at Carlson Ice Arena.
Members of the Runt’s Club can skate with a select group of IceHogs players and receive autographs during the 90 minute session. In order to go on the ice, you must have skates. Helmets are also encouraged.
Skates can be rented at Carlson Ice Arena, but are available on a first-come, first-serve basis and parents wishing to skate with their kids must have skates as well.
