The fans have chosen Groot for Marvel Night at the K-Wings.

Marvel theme night at K-Wings games is always very popular.  This year, the Kalamazoo Wings organization asked fans which Marvel character should be incorporated into specialty jerseys for the big night.  Groot won by a landslide.  So, will the jerseys represent baby Groot, teen Groot or adult Groot?  We'll all find out together Friday night.  At the end of the game, the specialty jerseys will be auctioned off with proceeds going to charity.

K-Wings will be holding a Groot costume contest and will reward someone with a super cool Guardians of the Galaxy prize pack.
