USA Hockey members can take advantage of the offer presenting their USA Hockey membership card at The Blue Cross Arena Box Office.
Now in its 12th year, Hockey Week Across America was created by USA Hockey in 2008 to engage the hockey community in celebrating the sport of hockey at all levels and exposing the sport to new audiences.
Sunday’s game will also feature the annual chicken wing-eating contest sponsored by The Distillery, which will take place in the tunnel located between sections 114 and 116 during the first intermission. For the third straight year, fans were able to vote on their favorite wing sauce on Amerks social media channels. The contestant that eats the most chicken wings soaked in the winning sauce voted most popular by the fans on social media will win a prize pack courtesy of The Distillery and the Amerks.
Following Sunday’s game, Amerks players will stop by The Distillery, located at 1142 Mt. Hope Ave., for the first official post-game party of the season as fans are invited to join in. The Distillery will offer a variety of great food and drink specials while Amerks prizes will be given away throughout the party.
