Defending the Blue Line Charity Game: An update

Time is running out

At the beginning of the month, I wrote about the Defending the Blue Line NHL Players Charity Game. Well. I'm back with an updated roster and a reminder on the details.

The game takes place August 3rd at Ridder arena on the U of M campus. Gates open at 1 with autographs for those with autograph tickets from 1:30 to 2:30. The game is from 3-4. At the end of the game, there will be a silent auction for game worn jerseys and other NHL items.

The roster has been expanded to include:


Dave Schwartz

Tom Ward

Phil Housley

Ian Leonard

Steve Payne

Lou Nanne


Hunter Miska

James vanRiemsdyk

Matt Hendricks

Nick Bjugstad

Danny Kristo

Jamie McBain

Paul Martin

Jimmy O'Brien

Kyle Okposo

Nate Prosser

Mike Condon

Brock Nelson

Jeff Taffe

Nate Schmidt

Kent Patterson

Eric Boulton

Josh Harding

Bryce Salvador

Karl Alzner

Stephane Veilleux

Taylor Chorney

Mark Parrish

Alex Goligoski

The game is in a team USA vs a Team Canada format. Team USA is captained by Matt Hendricks, and team Canada by Josh Harding.

Tickets are 10$ each and limited tickets are at here. You can also contact me for tickets, and I believe Bryan has a few left. Autograph tickets area also available from the site, and they are 20$. Suites are sold out. You can donate 20$ or more to be entered in a drawing to win a team signed Team USA or Team Canada jersey. If you can't make the game, you can donate tickets to send a military family to the game.

Here is a picture of this year's jerseys:


This is going to be a great game. Hope to see you there, Wilderness.
