What do you get when you combine a National Hockey League lockout with charity? NHL stars coming to Windsor!

The WFCU Centre will be hosting a charity hockey game featuring numerous locked-out NHL players including Todd Bertuzzi, Jimmy Howard, Johan Franzen, Niklas Kronwall, Steve Ott, James Neal, Keith Yandle, and Brenden Morrow.

The game is scheduled for Saturday December 8th at 6:30pm with proceeds going to local charities.

Tickets go on-sale to the general public at 10am on Thursday November 22nd at the TekSavvy.com Box Office inside the WFCU Centre, charge by phone at 1-866-969-WFCU (9328), or order online at wfcu-centre.com.

The WFCU Centre says ticket prices are $41.75 or $137 for a family four pack plus service charges, reserved seating.

As the NHL lockout enters its third month with over 300 cancelled regular season games — including now-cancelled Winter Classic festivities in Michigan — the NHL Players Association Charity Hockey Game concept was created to bring Windsor NHL quality hockey for a great cause.

“We are excited to get a few of the NHL stars on the ice for what will be a fantastic night of hockey in Windsor,” says Jason Toner, General Manager of Events at the WFCU Centre. “Not only will the NHLPA Charity Hockey Game be a memorable night for the City of Windsor, but it is also a great way to support local organizations that will reach out and help so many members of the community during this holiday season.”

The arena says that should an agreement be negotiated between the NHL and the NHLPA prior to 5pm on Thursday, December 6th, the NHLPA Charity Hockey Game will be cancelled and will not be rescheduled. All tickets will be refunded at that time.
