'Rock Out The Lockout"

Recommended Posts

Stick tap to Steve Ott and his brothers of the NHLPA for organizing a special event called:

"Rock Out The Lockout" at Windsor's WFCU Centre on Saturday December 8th.

All proceeds will benefit SPARKLES From Above, a non-profit organization which works with ‘In Honour of the Ones We Love’. Sparkles was originally created after the passing of a young child due to cancer.

In addition to seeing some of North America's greatest hockey stars, you will also have the chance to win the shirt off their backs right after the game. Anyone who purchases a ticket has the opportunity to win one of the game worn jerseys by any of the "Rock Out For Lockout" NHL players. Random seat numbers will be selected at the end of the game - and those seats will win the jersey following the end of game whistle.

The tournament is spearheaded by Sabres tough guy Steve Ott, Red Wings vet Dan Cleary and Oilers captain Shawn Horcoff.

NHLers scheduled to play include:

Justin Abdelkader

Todd Bertuzzi

Adam Burish

Daniel Cleary

Matt Ellis

Cory Emmerton

Vern Fiddler

Johan Franzen

Darren Helm

Shawn Horcoff

Jordan Leopold

Additional players to be announced this week. Roster subject to change.

The game will be standard hockey play with three twenty minute stop play periods. Please note game subject to cancellation if NHL and NHLPA reach an agreement with players prior to Thursday December 6th, 2012 at 5:00pm EST.

The NHLPA Charity Game in Atlantic City last weekend has already raised $500,000 for Super Storm Sandy relief.

Ott and his gang would love to raise the same amount, if not more for the pediatric cancer charity.
