ROCKFORD, Ill. – The Rockford IceHogs are hosting their annual Autism Awareness Night on Saturday, Jan. 26 against the Iowa Wild at 6 p.m. at the BMO Harris Bank Center. The Hogs will don specialty jerseys for the contest, which in-turn will be auctioned off with proceeds benefitting the Autism Program of Easterseals, and fans will have the opportunity to purchase a variety of “Mystery Pucks” that feature autographs from both IceHogs and Chicago Blackhawks players.
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.
Fans will have several different options to bid on this year's Autism Awareness Night jerseys:
Autism Awareness Night also features the return of “Mystery Pucks.” Each puck is signed by either a member of the Rockford IceHogs or Chicago Blackhawks, with available autographs including Alex DeBrincat, Patrick Kane, Duncan Keith and Jonathan Toews. Fans can snag a surprise signature by purchasing one puck for $15, or two pucks for $25.
As fans complete their trip around the BMO concourse during the game, they can also check out several information booths from the Autism Program of Easterseals.
Last season, the IceHogs raised more than $16,000 for Autism Awareness Night.
NEXT HOME GAME: Jan. 18 vs. Grand Rapids Griffins | 7 p.m.
