It's been a year since the AHL's Rockford IceHogs donned the red, orange, yellow and green of their Hispanic Heritage night sweaters. 

Last season's event hosted by the Chicago Blackhawks' affiliate included Hispanic cuisine, maracas giveaways, and a special visit from Dora the Explorer.

And now, despite facing some backlash for the theme last season, the IceHogs are back for more as the team presents their new Hispanic Heritage sweaters, pictured below next to last year's bright look:

Just because we know you want a closer look: 

Looks like Hammy Hog got a decent start on his Movember look.

Here's what Mike Peck, the IceHogs director of communications, said about the Nov. 8 theme via Puck Daddy's Greg Wyshynski:

“I figured I'd share Los IceHogs Dos with you. I attached a couple images of the jersey and we are structuring the night around the music aspect of the Hispanic culture. We're going to have a band playing throughout the game and a Spanish speaking PA announcer among other things.
“Last year's event was such a success that we wanted to do this game again.”
