Some exciting news just arrived from our friends at Defending the Blue Line! The organization just announced that it will be hosting an NHL Players Charity Game on Wednesday, June 20th at Ridder Arena on the University of Minnesota Campus. The game will feature Matt Hendricks of the Washington Capitals, as well as Zach Parise of the New Jersey Devils, Josh Harding and Nate Prosser of the the Minnesota Wild, and many many more. Tickets for the event are $20 in advance or $25 at the door and can be purchased at www.DefendingTheBlueLine.org. In addition to the autograph session prior to the game (free with paid admission to event), DTBL will also be auctioning off player worn sweaters after the game along with other goodies.

If you are not familiar with DTBL, they are a non-profit organization that works to ensure that children of military members are afforded every opportunity to participate in the game of hockey by providing free equipment for military kids and financial assistance for registration fees, hockey camps, special events,  game tickets, and other costs associated with hockey. All of the proceeds from our t-shirt sales are donated to the charity.
