St. John’s announced today that they will wear the above green jersey for their game on March 17 against the Manchester Monarchs. Fans have a chance to take home one of the 26 jerseys by purchasing 50/50 tickets over their next several home games.
At least three extra tickets will be drawn after the 50/50 winner and they will be invited to the St. Patrick’s game to receive their jersey from the players after the game.
Fans can enter the draw for the special edition jerseys by purchasing 50/50 tickets at the following home games:
• Binghamton – Saturday, Feb. 11 and Sunday, Feb. 12
• Hershey – Friday Mar. 9 and Saturday, Mar. 10
• Hamilton – Tuesday, Mar. 13 and Wednesday, Mar. 14
• Manchester – Saturday, Mar. 17
“The Shirts Off Our Backs promotion is always a hit with fans across pro hockey,” said IceCaps COO and AHL Governor Glenn Stanford. “For the St. John’s IceCaps, as a first-year franchise, we thought a special commemorative jersey would be a great way to reward the fans who have supported us so well in our inaugural season. The jerseys the players will wear on March 17 will be given away that night to a number of lucky IceCaps fans. Newfoundlanders and Labradorians hold a special connection to St. Patrick’s Day, so it’s fitting that’s the jersey we present to our fans.”
Each player on the IceCaps game roster, including injured players, as of March 17 will present their game authentic jersey.
The jerseys will be green with a metallic silver IceCaps crest on the front and a clover on each shoulder. They will also feature silver clovers and white, black, and silver piping on the arms and torso.
Like in Winnipeg the 50/50 draws have been very popular since the return of professional hockey. With this latest promotion it’s a safe bet that record winnings will occur over the next seven home games.
