HARTFORD, CT - AEG Management CT announced Wednesday that the Connecticut Whale will take part in the City of Hartford’s “Hats Off” hat and glove drive to benefit the children of Hartford’s Police Athletic League.

Fans attending the Whale’s home games this Friday, February 1 against Bridgeport, Saturday, February 2 vs. Springfield and Tuesday, February 5 against Albany are encouraged to bring new, unused winter hats and gloves to the games, and donation bins will be available at all XL Center entrances.

""I want to thank the Connecticut Whale, their fans and AEG for their support of the winter 'Hats Off' campaign that provides much-needed hats and gloves for Hartford youth and families," commented Hartford Mayor Pedro Segarra. The "Hats Off" campaign also supports the city's PAL (Police Athletic League) programs, including "learn to ride" snowboarding lessons donated by Ski Sundown for Hartford students.

The hat and glove initiative adds another element to a weekend that is already packed with excitement. Friday night’s game features dollar hot dogs and $2 beers until the end of the first intermission, as do all Whale Friday-night home games. Then Saturday night is the occasion of the first-ever “Whale White Out”. Fans are encouraged to wear white to the game, and the Whale will be giving away 10,000 white rally towels. Also at Saturday night’s game, U.S. Olympic gymnast John Orozco will be making a special appearance.

Faceoff for all three games included in the hat and glove drive is 7:00 PM. Tickets to all Whale home games start as low as $10 each ($12 each when tickets are purchased on the day of the game), and are on sale now at the Public Power Ticket Office at the XL Center, through TicketMaster Charge-by-Phone at 1-800-745-3000 and on-line at
