The Icemen Are Coming

A Look At Whats Coming up in the ECHL

Who’s ready for more HOCKEY!  After last weekend spending time with the Atlanta Gladiators and helping out the Hockey Fights Cancer Games in Georgia, LockedIN Magazine has more fun coming up.

The sensory-friendly games will feature sensory bags available to check out including noise-canceling headphones, as well as a sensory room for breaks from the action. Since hockey games can include loud, sudden noises, and lights, a ‘cheat sheet’ will be provided so fans will know what to expect. The team will wear specialty Autism awareness jerseys which will be auctioned off after Saturday’s game, benefiting Making Strides for Autism.

Fans are encouraged to bring new stuffed animals to the game to throw onto the ice following the first Icemen goal, to be donated to the Children’s Christmas Party of Jacksonville.
