While a lot of talk from last night’s Champs For Charity game in Chicago was centered around what people were saying about the lockout, the main part of the game was the job everyone did to help those in need.
As Tracey Myers of CSNChicago.com hears from the players, they were excited to not just put a show on for the fans who are eager to see some pro hockey, but do some good work on the side as well.
“We’re going through a tough time (with the lockout), but like Burish said, it’s pretty minuscule compared to what some people are going through,” Troy Brouwer said. “That’s what we were trying to raise money for tonight. To get all the old guys back was fun. To do it for a good cause was even better.”
All in all, they raised $323, 500 for the Chicago-area Ronald McDonald House Charities and did so by just reuniting a lot of the old gang.
