Tampa Bay Lightning star Steven Stamkos had high praise for hockey fans as he claimed that the NHLPA’s Dec. 19 charity game tickets were nearly sold out shortly after being put on sale on Dec. 13.

(It’s tough not to think of Gary Bettman’s own comments about hockey fans, even if Stamkos probably wasn’t aiming at that.)
Stamkos’ team will take on P.K. Subban‘s squad at the Mattamy Athletic Centre in Toronto at 7 p.m. ET that day.
Players are looking to contribute to the NHLPA Goals & Dreams fund, which strives to give children the chance to play hockey by making equipment and resources more easily available.
