Fans are encouraged to watch Sun Devil hockey's annual Maroon and Gold game before the season gets underway.

Typically teams wait until after the season is over to run their fan appreciation events, but the Arizona State hockey program does not believe in that.

On September 5th, the team is inviting its fans for a free BBQ starting at 7 p.m. at Oceanside Ice Arena in Tempe. Immediately following the dinner, fans are encouraged to get their first taste of 2013-14 Sun Devil hockey by watching the Maroon and Gold game at 8:30 p.m.

This game is a Sun Devil tradition and roughly 50 players will scrimmage to make their final impressions to the coaching staff to determine if they made the Division I roster. Head coach Greg Powers and his staff will have to cut the group of 50 down to 30 skaters come September 6. Sun Devil hockey reporter Mitch Terrell reported earlier this summer that ASU scored an A+ grade in recruiting so this may not be your typical scrimmage.

Players participating will be from last year's Division I roster, the Division II team, incoming recruits and maybe even a few walk-on athletes who can impact this year's program will take part.

As for the fan appreciation said, the Sun Devil hockey team has offered up a few treats. There will be prizes handed out to the fans who dress up and show their craziest school spirit.

Yes, everything from your ASU striped tube socks to some wacky wigs should come out of your closet because the top five most decked out fans will go home with some sweet gifts.

PRIZES:

First place - $150 CASH PLUS ONE (1) FREE STUDENT SEASON PASS FOR DI HOCKEY

Second place - $100 JIMMY JOHNS GIFT CARD PLUS ONE (1) FREE STUDENT SEASON PASS FOR DI HOCKEY

Third - Fifth place - $25 HUNGRY HOWIE'S PIZZA GIFT CARD PLUS ONE (1) FREE STUDENT SEASON PASS FOR DI HOCKEY

Wash your Sun Devil gear and come out for a night of free food and hockey at Oceanside Ice Arena because the Road to Delaware officially begins on September 5th.
