Whalers Home Tonight
This weekend it is 48 Hours of Danbury Whalers Hockey. T-shirts, a band, skating with the Whalers, and the Devils PA - Announcer, Kevin Clark. It's going to be good one. Buckle up.
Both games are against the 1000 Islands Privateers let's get the bounty.
The Danbury Whalers weekend starts off on Saturday, January 26th at 7:35 PM vs. Privateers. This will be the middle game of a 3-game weekend war with the first game in Watertown on Friday.
On Saturday, the Whalers will be wearing their special edition Black Jersey's with blue trim. The team will be auctioning off these jerseys and fans can take them home that night. This will be the only time this season the club wears this sweater.

As part of the night, People's Power CEO & Founder, Dave Pearsall will also be in net during an intermission promotion. Watch him try to stop 10 consecutive breakaways from Breanna Barksdale. If Breanna makes all 10 and then a bonus 11th shot she scores 5k from Peoples Power.
