CT Whale Rockin HockeyFun is in the cards this Friday, as Whalers Sports & Entertainment announced today that December 9 is Connecticut Whale trading card collectible night, presented by Webster Bank.

The first five-thousand fans at this Friday’s game at the XL Center vs. the Hershey Bears will receive the first of three special five-card collectible sets, consisting of Whale mainstays Wade Redden, Mats Zuccarello, Kris Newbury, Chad Johnson and Carl Hagelin, who is currently on recall to the parent New York Rangers club.

This is the first of three trading card giveaway nights that Webster Bank will be sponsoring throughout the Whale’s 2011-2012 season.  The other trading card nights are January 27 and March 16.  Each of these nights will include distribution of a five-player set to 5,000 fans.
