Saturday, Jan. 24, 2014 vs. Utica Comets
Time: 7 p.m. at the BMO Harris Bank Center.
Swedish American Hospital Giveaway: The first 2,500 fans through the gates will receive a pink LED foam stick. In addition to the LED stick, the IceHogs will skate on pink ice while wearing special pink jerseys which will be auctioned off throughout the night with proceeds benefitting the Mary Kay and Swedish American Foundations. The jersey auction will take place on the main concourse behind section 122 where fans can bid on jerseys via a silent auction.
Match Up: The IceHogs host the Utica Comets for the first time of the 2014-15 campaign. Two of the best teams in the Western Conference will not meet up again this season until the Hogs travel to New York to face the Comets on March 28. The two games with the teams last season were the first games all-time between the clubs. The IceHogs picked up victories in both as Rockford defeated Utica 2-1 in New York on Feb. 1 and eight days later, a 5-4 overtime win in Rockford.
