Yo, Adrian! Toledo Walleye to wear Rocky-themed jerseys

Jan 6, 2017, 3:51 PM

It’s Rocky Night in Toledo!

Wait, should that read ‘Hockey Night in Toledo?’ Well, yes and no.

The Toledo Walleye of the ECHL will host the Brampton Beast Saturday night and they’ll check both the ‘hockey’ and ‘Rocky’ boxes.

That’s because the Walleye will be celebrating “Rocky Tribute Night” complete with Balboa-themed jerseys as the iconic Oscar-winning film turns 40 years old.

From the official team website:

The Walleye will wear Rocky theme night jerseys with patriotic hockey pants, sponsored by A-Gas. Each game worn theme night jersey will be auctioned off as a set with hockey pants, live following the game, with proceeds to benefit Heroes in Action, International Boxing Club of Toledo and the Walleye Wishing Well.
