Hockey players set themselves apart from other athletes because of their drive to do "good". They go out of their way to raise funds and give back to the communities that helped raise them, and ensured that they'd be able to realize their dreams.
Logan Couture is giving back. In his second annual charity game Logan has a slew of NHL players and hopefuls coming out to support him. He has a Stanley Cup Champion in Drew Doughty, a Hershey Bear in Patrick McNeil, a fellow Shark in Andrew Desjardins and as for a goalie? He has Matt Hackett slotted to make an appearance. That's not all. Three guys you all know fairly well will be lacing them up too: Ryan O`Reilly, Ryan Wilson, and unsurprisingly, Jamie McGinn. As a side note: all three Colorado guys are slatted to play on the same team.
It all takes place on Saturday at the Lucan arena, the game starts at 6pm, but there is a autograph session with the guys at 4pm. For a measely 15$, you can get some hockey back into your system, and watch the guys have fun and feel good about yourself for helping youth hockey in Lucan. Also, bring some extra cash because there will be both a silent and live auction!
