Hola, Game Timers... your Game Time Prospect Department is live on the scene back in his old stomping grounds, the "Big Orange Box" on Elm Street, better known as the Rockford (IL) Metro Centre, home of the Rockford IceHogs.
The Hogs are hosting both the Peoria Rivermen, and several ex-IceHogs now playing for the Chicago Blackhawks. Antti Niemi, Niklas Hjalmarsson, Kris Versteeg and several others are out in the lobby signing autographs while the Rivermen get ready downstairs to take on the IceHogs in the refurbished -- and very nice -- Metro Centre.
Pictures of the building, and the game, to follow. This is the GDT, so if you get tired of the Fniland-Slovakia bronze medal game, stop by.
