Blood and hockey are a natural pair, and we need more of both right now. The Charity Hockey Classic, to be held at 7pm this Saturday at Kettler Capitals Iceplex, is gonna solve both those problems at once. The event is a round-robin tournament for charity (I expect the Caps alum/front-office team to sweep) with special appearances by Elliot in the Morning’s Elliot Segal, Slapshot, the Red Rockers, and those dang mites on ice.
There will also be a silent auction. Admission is 10 bucks at the door; kids are free.
Please help Inova refurbish the bloodmobile and save some lives. And, because it’s hockey, you can watch Cap alum Paul Mulvey (43 career fights) endanger some lives as well.
More info after the jump and at charityhockeyclassic.com.
UPDATE: Your boy Wes Johnson, Capitals in-arena announcer, will be there too. Now it’s a party.
