Without minor-league affiliates to help nurture players, professional coaches would have resort to the old-fashioned method of planting a fresh crop of athletes each spring. Watch a carefully cultivated squad blossom with today’s GrouponLive deal: for $55, you get a hockey outing for four to see a Rockford IceHogs game at BMO Harris Bank Center (a $115 total value). The outing includes the following:
- Four tickets for upper-sideline seating in sections 201–207 or 218–224 (a $17 value each)
- Four hot dogs (a $4 value each)
- Four sodas (a $4 value each)
- One souvenir bobblehead (a $15 value)<p>
The Rockford IceHogs charge onto the rink determined to spark a late-season ascent toward the top of the Western Conference during two hard-hitting bouts at BMO Harris Bank Center. In their four years as the primary AHL affiliate of the Chicago Blackhawks, the IceHogs roster has served as a launching pad for 35 NHL players, 10 of whom helped coax the Stanley Cup back to Chicago in 2010 by combining all their Halloween candy into one hard-to-refuse offer. While slurping sodas, munching hot dogs, and shaking bobbleheads to the tune of “We Will Rock You,” fans can marvel at the smooth-skating heroics of center Brandon Pirri, whose 19 goals and 26 assists sit among the league’s best through 50 games. Defensively, Shawn LaLonde extinguishes opposing attacks, and goalie Carter Hutton allows no puck to pass without first presenting an up-to-date passport.
Our customers loved this deal last year, earning the IceHogs a spot on Groupon’s Best of 2011 list.
