Yeah. Houston does it as well. Schools get free tickets to come out to the game. Schools provide the food and beverage.

The AHL franchise gets new fans.

My niece-in-law became a hockey fan down in Rockford after a school day. She begs her parents to let her go with us to any IceHogs game when we are in town. There was a small "Mo-splosion" when she found out about an hour after we left town one weekend, that we were there, and went to TWO Icehogs games...
