NHLers join in as firefighters take on police at second annual charity game

  • Print

Jets players, including team captain Andrew Ladd, are lacing up Sunday for a good cause when city cops face firefighters on the ice for the second annual Guns versus Hoses charity game.

The Winnipeg Police Service Patrolmen hockey team will play against the Winnipeg Fire Department during the 2nd Annual Guns vs. Hoses Charity Hockey Game Saturday at 6 p.m.

The event is scheduled at the MTS Iceplex, 3969 Portage Ave. with doors opening at 5 p.m. The event is rush seating, and there are no reserve seats.

The event, to raise funds for families suffering from Spinal Muscular Atrophy and Muscular Dystrophy, is modeled after a program in New York City where the New York Police Department and the New York Fire Department play in a charity hockey match up, and later participate in a "Battle of the Bands" representing Police and Fire personnel.

Events like this bring members, their families, friends, and community groups closer together in support of charity, the police said in an announcement today.

NHLPA members Andrew Ladd, Mark Stuart, Brian Little, and Olli Jokinen will also play at the event.

There will be post game social held immediately after the game at the restaurant located at the MTS Iceplex above the arenas.

Tickets are $10.00 per person which will give participants access to both venues and are available at the Winnipeg Police Credit Union, 300 William Ave., and at the door.
