Rob Gronkowski scores Hat Trick…. Worcester Sharks change game time on Jan 22 to accommodate GRONK fans
Worcester Sharks move up start time on Jan 22 to 1pm vs. the St. John’s IceCaps
WORCESTER, MA - Worcester Sharks President Michael A. Mudd has announced that the Worcester Sharks have moved up their scheduled start time on January 22 to 1pm to allow GRONK fans the opportunity to catch both the Worcester Sharks game vs. the St. John’s IceCaps and the New England Patriots showdown with the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC Championship Game at 3pm.
Doors at the DCU Center will open at 12pm on Sunday, January 22.
In addition, the Worcester Sharks have moved the date of the team poster giveaway and full team post game autograph session to Sunday, March 18 at 3pm vs. the Bridgeport Sound Tigers on Worcester IceCats Night.
Patriots tight end and Pro Bowler Rob Gronkowski made sure that New England would play again on Sunday after scoring three touch downs (Hat Trick) propelling the Patriots to a 45-10 rout of the Denver Broncos on Saturday in the NFL Divisional Round.
GRONK will spike a ceremonial puck before the Sharks game vs. the Providence Bruins on Friday, February 24th at the DCU Center in Worcester. Gronkowski agreed to spike the puck after the Worcester Sharks paid his NFL fine of $7,500 from November 18 for his unsportsmanlike spike following his second touchdown grab win over the Jets on November 13.
Rob Gronkowski spiked the football after a celebration of a touchdown vs. the Patriots biggest rival, the New York Jets. It will be only be fitting that Gronkowski will spike a puck before the Worcester Sharks host their biggest rival, the Providence Bruins on Friday, February 24th.
The Sharks will also be hosting “March of Dimes Night” and the 2nd annual Boy Scout sleep over during the game on the February 24th.
