Five fans will be chosen for a chance to win the tickets
Rockford, Ill.- With the long awaited start of the NHL season almost here, the Rockford IceHogs are offering fans the chance to unlock a pair of tickets to the Chicago Blackhawks home opener on Tuesday, Jan. 22 at the United Center.
Five fans will be randomly chosen to participate in a contest which will be held during the first media timeout in the second period of Friday’s game. Participants will be pulled by a random seat drawing and the five contestants’ seat locations will be announced throughout the first period.
The five chosen fans will each be given a key, courtesy of M. Spinello and Son Locksmiths, that could unlock a box that will contain two opening night Blackhawks tickets against the St. Louis Blues at 7:30 p.m.
The IceHogs take on the Peoria Rivermen on Friday at 7:05 p.m. at the BMO Harris Bank Center in an Illinois Lottery Cup matchup. For tickets, visit IceHogs.com, call 815-968-5222 or in person at the BMO Harris Bank Center Box Office or any Ticketmaster location.
Throughout the remainder of the 2012-13 season, the IceHogs will be giving away Blackhawks tickets. Stayed tuned to IceHogs.com or the team’s Facebook page (/RockfordIceHogs) for details.
