Former Devils Sergei Brylin, John MacLean to skate in Sandy relief game
A Devils alumni team that will include coach Pete DeBoer, Sergei Brylin and John MacLean, will face coaches from the New Jersey Colonials Travel Hockey Club Friday night at Mennen Arena in a charity game to benefit victims of Hurricane Sandy.
The game, set to start at 7 p.m. in the Morristown rink at 161 Hanover Avenue, will also feature Ken Daneyko, Grant Marshall, Bruce Driver, Dave Barr and others. Admission at the door is $10 for adults and $5 with a non-perishable food item for children.
DeBoer's two sons, Jack and Matthew, as well as one of Governor Chris Christies sons, will skate with the Colonials coaches.
When Colonials president Dede McMenamy suggested a benefit game be played to raise funds following the damaging storm, DeBoer and his wife, Susan, were among those who agreed to help. The event will collect monetary donations and food items to replenish local food banks and raise funds for the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund and the Morris County Interfaith Food Pantry.
The Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund was founded by Colonials mom Mary Pat Christie. Ann Marie Manahan is president of the Interfaith Food Pentry. Both organizations are 501 (c) 3 Not for Profit.
Donation checks may be made payable to: Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund and/or Interfaith Food Pantry.
Suggested items to donate include: Parmalat, powdered milk, canned meats and meals, low-salt soups, canned tuna or chicken, chili, peanut butter, nut butters and canned fruit, juices, cereal, granola bars, coffee, diapers (all sizes), formula, baby food. Frozen turkeys for Thanksgiving will be accepted.
Devils winger Cam Janssen will hold his own charity game to raise funds for Hurricane Sandy first responders.
The game, featuring NHL players Barret Jackman, Alex Pietrangelo, Brian Elliot, and St. Louis Blues alumni, will be played Saturday at the Hardees Iceplex in Chesterfield, Missouri.
Janssen, a St. Louis native, said he wanted to help people in New Jersey so he asked players he skates with in the offseason.
