Wolves to feature St. Patrick's jerseys


Once again the Chicago Wolves will celebrate St. Patrick's Day by wearing commemorative jerseys that will be used to support important charities.

The Wolves will wear specially designed jerseys for their home games this Saturday and Sunday and again on March 17. The jerseys will be available via auction and raffle as part of the team's 17th St. Patrick's Day fundraiser.

The jerseys, presented by Jewel-Osco, will raise money for Easter Seals Metropolitan Chicago and Chicago Wolves Charities. The Wolves have raised more than $500,000 for Chicago-area charities, including Easter Seals, with the St. Patrick's Day jerseys.

Forward Andrew Gordon, one of the team's leading scorers, will wear a different jersey in each of the three games and they'll be available via raffle, silent auction, and online auction.

Wolves forwards Alex Friesen and Devin DiDiomete and defenseman Peter Andersson will also have their jerseys available through in-game raffles. Tickets are $5 apiece or five for $20. The jersey worn by defenseman Kevin Connauton will be available via blind auction.

Fans can bid on other limited-edition jerseys during the silent auction that begins March 9 in Allstate Arena's Southeast Lobby and closes at the end of the second intermission on March 17.

Gordon have his final jersey available in a ChicagoWolves.com auction that begins March 18 and closes at noon on March 29.
