NH Charity Game
DENVER – The Denver Cutthroats announced today the team will host a Celebrity Charity Game on February 9 at the Denver Coliseum as part of their “Pink at the Rink” weekend, presented by 9News. The charity game will take place before the second of two games against the Fort Worth Brahmas and will feature former NHL players against a team of local police and firefighter personnel.
Scheduled to appear in the game are former Colorado Avalanche players Rick Berry, Adam Foote, Scott Parker, Joe Sakic, and Stephane Yelle, plus former Denver Grizzlies players Jeff Sirkka and Cutthroats head coach Derek Armstrong. “We are excited to bring this group of retired NHL players to the Coliseum to raise money and entertain our fans,” Armstrong said. “It will be fun to play with this group and we know our fans will enjoy it.” Ken Klee, Bob House and Phil Crowe will also play on the team.
The celebrity game will take place before the Cutthroats square off against the Brahmas and is set to begin at 4:00 PM MST. The game will consist of two 20-minute periods. Doors open at 3:00 PM to those who have purchased a ticket to the Cutthroats game later that night. All tickets are good for both games.
The Cutthroats and Brahmas face off at 7:05 PM MST. Five dollars from every ticket sold to the Cutthroats game will be donated to charity. In addition, the jerseys worn in the charity game and the Cutthroats game will all be available for auction throughout the night, with those proceeds also going to charity.
