Those in attendance will have the opportunity to take pictures with some of their favorite Star Wars characters, courtesy of 501st Legion. The cast will be taking part in promotions, while others will be roaming the concourse throughout the game to greet, take pictures, and entertain fans.

Jersey Auction: Immediately after the conclusion of Rockford’s contest with the Checkers on Sunday, the team will hold a live auction on the ice surface of the BMO, as fans can bid on the game-worn jerseys. Leighton’s Star Wars helmet designed by Ronnie Espig and Hellion Designs, and Kyle Cumiskey’s jersey will be in the IceHogs eBay store at a later date. All proceeds from the auction will benefit the IceHogs Charitable Foundation. In turn, the IceHogs Charitable Foundation will donate a portion of the jersey proceeds to Special Olympics, Illinois, as well as other local charities.

In-Game Auctions: Fans can go behind section 122 to visit the silent auction tables, which will have a variety of memorabilia to bid on, including:

Matchup: Rockford faces Charlotte for the last time during the 2015-16 regular season on home ice. On Tuesday night, the last time the two met, the IceHogs pulled off a 1-0 victory on a goal from Mark McNeill with just over 10 minutes remaining in the game. Starting against his former team for the first time, goaltender Drew MacIntyre registered his first shutout of the season. The next time the Central Division opponents meet will be in a pair of games April 3 and 4 in Charlotte.
