Merchandise will be sold from 4:30-7:30 p.m., where there will be a 60% discount on howling head merchandise, according to the team.

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.
