After the game, 32 fans will get to go on the ice and take part in the “Jersey off our Backs” ceremony. The fans will receive an authentic Coyotes game-worn jersey from a player.

There will be a discount on concessions, including $3 hot dogs, $6 draft beers, $8 Ranch Water Tall Boy Cans, $5 margaritas and $2.50 candy, according to the release.
