USA Hockey's National Team Development Program has hosted 'Star Wars' Night for a home game at their Ann Arbor, Mich. arena each of the last two years. It'll take a special twist this year, as America's best under-18 hockey players skate around with Darth Vader on their chests during the Saturday, Jan. 18 USHL game against Waterloo.
This is an actual quote that appears in a USA Hockey press release:
"We are honored to work with USA Hockey again on this great event," said Jon Leopold, event coordinator with the Great Lakes Garrison (a Star Wars fan club). "This year will prove even more special with the team wearing Darth Vader-themed jerseys. While we're featuring a member of the Dark Side of the Force this year, we are already looking forward to next year when we can focus on the Light Side."
