If you are missing hockey and have nothing to do on a Thursday night The Rockford Register and Rockford Ice Hogs have a deal for you!  The Rockford team has just started their training camp and if you look at their roster it is chock full of young Blackhawks.  If you have a free night and don’t mind the 88 mile drive you can watch the young Hawks under the Ice Hogs banner for free in their first pre-season game.

They are giving away free tickets the details can be found through this link via the Rockford Register.

Many of the young Blackhawks from last season are playing for the Ice Hogs while the NHL is locked out. A lot of fan favorites are on the roster including Jimmy Hayes, Andrew Shaw,Marcus Kruger, Nick Leddy,  and everyone’s favorite boxer Brandon Bollig!

Their are also future potential Blackhawk stars on the roster from Brandon Saad, Jeremy Morin, and Carter Hutton.

Maybe the lockout hasn’t lasted too long for some to make the drive to see NHL talent for free, but if you miss the Hawks and have nothing to do it could be Rockford or bust on a Thursday night!

Le’ts Go Hawks/ICE HOGS

End the Lockout!!
