Returning for this year’s event are David Hanson, Jeff Carlson and Steve Carlson, who played the Hanson Brothers in the 1977 sports movie classic Slap Shot. The Hanson Brothers will attend the game on Saturday, March 15, and take part in a special on-ice activity and autograph session. Saturday’s game will also feature a giveaway of 4,000 Hanson Brothers-styled glasses.

The Checkers will wear specialty retro jerseys, based on those worn in the late 1960s, for both games. The jerseys will be up for auction following Saturday’s game, with proceeds benefiting Claire’s Army, a local non-profit organization which provides support for families fighting childhood cancer.

Hanson Brothers Private Skate

A private skate with the Hanson Brothers will take place Saturday from 1-2:30 p.m. at Time Warner Cable Arena. The cost of the skate is $20 and includes skate rental and a special commemorative digital photograph with the actors. There are a limited number of tickets available for the skate, which can be purchased through the Checkers' online store. All proceeds will benefit the Charlotte Checkers Charitable Foundation.

Tickets for Saturday’s game are very limited and will sell out well before game time.
