WORCESTER (CBS) – Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has agreed to spike the puck at a Worcester Sharks game in February.

Earlier this week the Sharks offered to reimburse him the $7,500 NFL fine for a spike during a game against the New York Jets.

Gronkowski will spike the ceremonial first puck on February 24 before the Sharks host the Providence Bruins at Worcester’s DCU Center.

Gronk was fined by the NFL for his unsportsmanlike spike following his second touchdown grab in the win over the Jets on November 13.

“The Sharks are really excited that Gronkowski took us up on our offer,” said Sharks President Michael A. Mudd. “This is a win-win for everyone. Sharks fans are Patriots fans and I know that they will pack the house to root on Rob and the Sharks on February 24 at the DCU Center.”

The Sharks will also be hosting “March of Dimes Night” and the second annual Boy Scout sleep over during the game on the February 24th.
