Steven Stamkos Headlines Charity Game

Bruce Fedyck-USA TODAY Sports

 

There hasn’t been much good that’s come out of this current NHL lockout. There’s been a little though. Just last month some NHL players joined together and played a charity hockey game, dubbed “Operation Hat Trick”, at Atlantic City’s Boardwalk Hall to benefit the victims of Hurricane Sandy. Tampa Bay Lightning star Steven Stamkos was part of that group. Now Stamkos, a current RBC Play Hockey ambassador, will join fellow ambassador/NHL player P.K. Subban of the Montreal Canadiens, as a captain for the RBC Play Hockey Charity Challenge.

The game, to be held Dec 19 at the Mattamy Athletic Centre in Toronto, will feature two teams of over 30 other NHL players. The teams were named Team Blue (Stamkos) and Team White (Subban). Participants include Stamkos’ current Lightning teammates Teddy Purcell and B.J. Crombeen, former teammate Steve Downie (now with the Colorado Avalanche), the Pittsburgh Penguins James Neal, New York Rangers Michael Del Zotto, Toronto Maple Leafs Phil Kessel and Boston Bruins Chris Kelly to name a few. A full roster, released Dec 17, can be found on the NHLPA website.

The game will be played 5-on-5 and is expected to last 60 minutes. Tickets went on sale last Thursday, Dec 13 and all proceeds will go to the RBC Play Hockey program and NHLPA Goals & Dreams Fund in order to help grow the game of hockey. Tickets are still available through Ticketmaster, so don’t hesitate as it supports a great cause and may be the only hockey seen for awhile!

Alex Petrovic and Evander Kane Square Off Three Times In One Game

During Florida Panthers vs. Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday evening, Alex Petrovic and Evander Kane squared off twice in the second period, with an epic finale in the third. Unfortunately, they were both ejected after the third fight. Chances are, this battle would have continued into the fourth of fifth round had the two been anywhere near each other for the rest of the game.

Alex Galchenyuk Scores Wild Goal On Buffalo Sabres

Alex Galchenyuk put the Montreal Canadiens ahead of the Buffalo Sabres with this epic goal midway through the second period on Wednesday night. I'm still trying to figure out how his momentum didn't render him incapable of completing the shot, and I bet the Sabres remain baffled as well.

The NHL's newest phenom, Edmonton Oilers center Connor McDavid, returned to the ice on Tuesday night after missing most of his rookie campaign with a fractured collarbone. McDavid, who has a flare for the dramatic, smoked the Columbus Blue Jackets with this epic goal, and hockey enthusiasts lost their minds online.
