The American Hockey League’s Manitoba Moose will begin their Autism Awareness campaign, beginning this Saturday.

Moose to Host Autism Awareness Game Saturday

Manitoba will host the visiting Rockford Icehogs from Bell MTS Place at 6:00 PM central on Saturday evening, as the Moose will open their Autism Awareness campaign by wearing one-of-a-kind ‘puzzle piece’ sweaters, which will then be auctioned off following the game, with all proceeds St. Amant Foundation. 

Bell MTS Place will also host a ‘quiet room’ available for those attending the game to take a break from the sights and sounds inside the playing arena. An informative game day guide will also be available for fans to help with the full Manitoba Moose in-arena experience. 

Also, Manitoba Moose stuffed bears will continue to be available for sale in the arena concourse during March at every home game. Much like the players on ice, the teddy bears will also be wearing miniature ‘puzzle piece’ sweaters. The plush toys will sell for $15, while every fan who buys a bear will have his/her name submitted to a draw with the winner receiving a life-size ‘puzzle piece’ sweater. 

Tickets for Saturday’s Autism Awareness game are still available to purchase from the Manitoba Moose Box Office. Saturday’s contest at Bell MTS Place also marks the beginning of a six-game homestand for the Moose, as the team from Manitoba will also host Texas and San Diego in the coming weeks.
