The IceHogs have released a schedule for their training camp, which includes their pre-season opener vs. the Wolves (which will not take place at BMO. It will happen at the Carlson Arctic Ice Arena in Loves Park). Sadly, all of the training camp practices at the BMO Harris Bank Center are closed to the public, but there will still be plenty of pre-season action for Hogs fans to partake in! The training camp will officially end on the regular season opener vs. the Grand Rapids Griffins on October 8–and you’ll get the magnet schedule for this season if you attend!
Can’t wait until October 8 for IceHogs action? Then get two friends and join the IceHogs for Birdies and Blades, the October 3 golf outing! They will team you three up with a 2011-2012 IceHogs player or coach. Yeah, the registration fee is $500, but the proceeds will help the area youth hockey programs–and will include all three of you, green fees and cart, a tee sign, an IceHogs jersey with your team member’s name, lunch, and dinner. You even get to “draft” your player before lunch, have lunch, and then get to golf for the afternoon! You can get more details here.
If you’re craving more IceHogs action, come by tomorrow for a special Prospects Friday post, which will recap the Maple Leafs Rookie Tournament and highlight some prospects that will most likely be joining the IceHogs this season. Until then!
