Darth Vader Drops Puck at Minor League Hockey Game for Star Wars Night

Huntsville Havoc
Tyler BrookeSenior Analyst IIJanuary 11, 2014

A lot of sports teams host Star Wars night, but one minor league hockey team did it the right way by bringing out Darth Vader to drop the puck.

The Huntsville Havoc hosted the Mississippi RiverKings for a Southern Professional Hockey League matchup on Jan. 10 for Star Wars night. The event featured a costume contest along with stormtroopers and lightsabers.

The Force was with the Havoc, as they went on to win the game 4-2.

Hat-tip to Hemal Jhaveri from USA Today's For The Win for the awesome find.
