Salute to Slap Shot
This Friday, February 17 the Admirals will host a Salute to Slap Shot, to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the release of this timeless hockey movie! Take a look below for all the info you'll need to join in the festivities!
Special Slap Shot Inspired Admirals Jerseys
The Admirals players will wear special Slap Shot inspired jerseys for the game that will be auctioned off via a mobile auction and the money raised will be donated to Lee National Denim Days to benefit the American Cancer Society.
Here is some info and rules for the auction:
- People interested in bidding must register for the auction. You can do so simply by texting ADMIRALS to 52182 and following the instructions on your phone or on your computer by clicking here.
- If you don't have a cell phone you can register for the auction at the Fan Services Booth, located on the concourse between sections 228 and 230, all game on Wednesday or through the first period on Friday.
- For the first time ever, you can continue to bid during the game even if you aren't here! Everything is done through your phone and you can see the prices change in real time.
- The auction will end at 8:45 pm CT on Friday night and winners will be notified via text message.
- While you do need to register with a credit card, you DO NOT need to pay with one. You are more than welcome to use cash or a check to do so but payment must be completed the night of the auction.
- You can bid on as many jerseys as you want, but you are responsible for any jersey you win. Bids cannot be rescinded.
- Raffle tickets will be available on Friday to win a team autographed Slap Shot jersey. Raffle tickets are $10 each.
- There will be jerseys made up for all players currently on the Admirals roster. Additional jerseys will likely be added as well.
- Pontus Aberg will wear two different jerseys. One will be auctioned off via the mobile bidding and the other is sent to the AHL, per league requirements.
- These jerseys will be worn at Friday's game only. There is no guarantee that any individual jersey will be a game-worn jersey so please do not bid on any jersey assuming it will be game-worn.
- A certificate of authenticity will be provided.
- Winners are given the opportunity to meet the player after the game.
Visit from the Hanson Brothers!
They helped make Slap Shot one of the top sports movies of all time, the Hanson Brothers will be here at the game to sign autographs and meet with fans. Steve Carlson, Jeff Carlson and Dave Hanson will be available in the South Goal Tap Room beginning at 6 pm. Pictures are free, but fans do need to bring their own items to be autographed.
Watch Slap Shot on the Video Board!
After the game is done we'll show the full, unedited (note for parents the move contains adult language and themes) version of the movie on the UW-Milwaukee Panther Arena center-hung video board. The movie will start immediately after the game is completed. Concession stands will remain open until 10 pm for fans to get their popcorn or maybe a grape or orange soda (Actually no grape or orange soda. It's a Slap Shot reference. Hahaha)
