Rockford, Ill. – The Rockford IceHogs announced on Tuesday that they will honor youth hockey players through the “Easterseals Youth Hockey Player of the Game” program.
The IceHogs are proud to support local youth hockey programs, and recognize young players who exhibit good sportsmanship, leadership, and other traits that positively impact their team and community. The IceHogs and Easterseals want to shine the spotlight on these young individuals to help them receive the positive recognition they have earned through their actions on and off the ice.
Players under the age of 17 can be nominated on IceHogs.com for on-ice performance, leadership qualities or for being a dedicated and passionate teammate and player. The “Easterseals Youth Hockey Player of the Game” will then be recognized at an IceHogs game during the 2017-18 season. The winner will receive four (4) tickets to a game, a commemorative certificate and also be a part of the countdown before the players hit the ice. Extra tickets beyond the four provided can be purchased at a discounted rate.
Easterseals paves the way for programs offering guidance and support, inspiring action and unlocking the potential of each person served. Today and every day, Easterseals works in our local communities so children and adults can live, learn, work and play in the community. Easterseals serves more than 38,000 children, adults and families through comprehensive autism and child development programs and services in Rockford and Chicagoland.
