Donald Driver will take part in festivities surrounding the Milwaukee Admirals-San Antonio Rampage game Friday night at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.

"It's his first appearance in Milwaukee, post-retirement.  We're going to celebrate his career. He's going to drop the ceremonial opening puck," explained Admirals President Jon Greenburg on TODAY'S TMJ4's "Live at Daybreak."

"He'll do an interview, and he'll be judging a dance contest on the ice during the second intermission.  If we're lucky, maybe he'll be a human hockey puck, too."

He said the team will wear special breast cancer awareness jerseys this weekend which will be auctioned off.

"We have a special one for Donald Driver for tonight, which he will autograph, and we'll raffle off."

Proceeds will raise money for cancer-related efforts as well.

REO Speedwagon has been scheduled to play after Saturday night's game against Charlotte.

Greenburg said that as of 6:30 a.m. Friday, there were plenty of tickets available.
