Brick City Homecoming & Family Weekend features a performance by comedian Kevin Hart at 9 tonight and a talk by actor Michael J. Fox at 2 p.m. on Saturday. Both events are sold out, as is Saturday’s men’s hockey game against St. Lawrence University at 7:05 p.m. at Blue Cross Arena. It marks the first time an RIT men’s hockey game at the downtown ice-hockey rink has sold out more than two days in advance (last year’s homecoming game drew a record 10,556 fans, selling out on game day). “Having a sellout for the second consecutive year cements the idea that RIT hockey has arrived in the hearts and minds of the community,” says Lou Spiotti, executive director of RIT Athletics. “We’re proud to be able to bring this level of excitement and entertainment to our fans.” U.S. soccer star and Rochester native Abby Wambach will drop the ceremonial first puck, and she will sign autographs between the first and second periods.
