The Milwaukee Admirals hockey team and fans welcomed Packers wide receiver Donald Driver to the ice last Friday night. The fourteen year veteran, Super Bowl champion, and Dancing with the Stars winner made a public appearance at the BMO Harris Bradley Center, just a week after announcing his retirement.
The Packers all-time leading wide receiver in yards and receptions was to take part in a number of events during the game, as the Admirals honor his historic fourteen year career in Green Bay. Admirals president Jon Greenburg told reporters at the announcement that his organization felt obligated to celebrate Driver’s dedication to Wisconsin and his fans, predicting the night was going to be something to remember.
While exact details of Driver’s participation during the night had not been released, it was known that he would be involved in the initial puck drop, a fan-included intermission activity, as well as an exclusive live interview with PA announcer Matt Moore. Lee Denim Jeans sponsored the event. On top of that, special pink jerseys that the Admirals wore for all three-games of the weekend home stand were part of a silent-auction following Sunday’s match-up.
