HERSHEY, Pa. – The HERSHEY BEARS, in conjunction with ABC-27, announced today a makeup date for the game broadcast originally scheduled for Friday, February 3. The announcement was made by BEARS President/GM Doug Yingst.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, the television broadcast slated for Friday, February 3 at Wilkes-Barre/Scranton was cancelled. The BEARS and ABC-27 are proud to announce that the game against the St. John’s IceCaps has been added to the schedule and will be broadcast live from GIANT Center on Saturday, March 31 at 7:00 PM.
