Give Blood - Play Hockey

Blood and hockey are pretty much synonymous with one another, eh? So what a better idea than to raise money for Inova Blood Donor Services than to hold a charity hockey game between the coaching staff of two incredibly competitive local hockey clubs. For all you local hockey fans in the D.C. area, come out to the Ashburn Ice House here in lovely suburban Virginia for the Inaugural Charity Hockey Classic on September 12th (after Capitals Training Camp of course)!

Hockey Mom knows many of the players for the red (gotta love that color) team and I promise that a good time will be had by all while raising money for a much-needed new bloodmobile! Slapshot and former Miss Virginia Tara Wheeler will also be on hand for the festivities and what promises to be a highly-spirited contest. Check out the Web site for more information and hope to see you all there!

In other hockey happenings:

  • Ovie is apparently sporting some fresh ink very close to his cheeky parts. Hmmm, any guesses as to what that says? Makes for some interesting pre-season conversation anyhoo... (stick tap to the always unique Puck Daddy).

  • In case you missed it, the NHL Players Association showed Executive Director Paul Kelly the door in the wee hours of the morning after only two years with the organization. Talk about a revolving door in that place...
