JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — The ECHL All-Star game is one of the biggest events the league hosts every year.
"We've got NHL people coming to town, AHL people, ECHL people, they'll all be here," Icemen President Bob Ohrablo said.
Originally, Jacksonville was named the host for the 2021 game, but due to COVID-19 the game was rescheduled for 2022.
"Usually the league waits more time to award the game but in this case, since we do so well and so many fans come out to our games on a regular basis, they decided to bring it here to Jacksonville," Ohrablo said.
The Jacksonville Icemen will take on some of the greatest of the league during a game on Monday at 7:30 p.m.
"Our first-place Icemen, right now the best team in the league, against the entire league, so it's going to be a lot of fun," Ohrablo said.
Before that puck drops, fans and families are invited to join in on the Fan Fair fun starting Sunday at 2 p.m. inside and outside of the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena.
Fan Fair tickets are available here.
