Following is the full complement of participants for Wednesday’s RBC Play Hockey Charity Challenge in Toronto. The exhibition (with proceeds towards the NHLPA Goals & Dreams fund) will be held at the Mattamy Athletic Centre, a.k.a. the renovated Maple Leaf Gardens.
With media in attendance, we’ll see if the players have anything to say on the disclaimer of interest topic. The NHL referenced previous NHLPA commentary in its class-action complaint (see section 43) in hopes the courts will side with the league’s “sham” argument.
Perhaps the players will be provided with fresh talking points to repeat over and over and over.
