Detroit Red Wings forward Danny Cleary is one of three NHLPA members organizing a charity game at Windsor’s WCU Centre.
Buffalo forward and former Windsor Spitfire Steve Ott and Edmonton forward Shawn Horcoff are also organizing the event, scheduled for December 8, unless the NHL and NHLPA can come to terms on a new collective bargaining agreement before then.
The game would be the latest of several organized by locked-out players, all benefitting local charities.
In addition to the three organizers, the following players are tentatively scheduled to appear:
From the Red Wings, Todd Bertuzzi, Justin Abdelkader, Jimmy Howard, Johan Franzen, Niklas Kronwall, Jonathan Ericsson, Ian White, Cory Emmerton, Darren Helm and Jonas Gustavsson. From the Colorado Avalanche, Windsor-native Ryan Wilson. From the Oilers, Eric Belander and Jeff Petry. From the Chicago Blackhawks, Jamal Mayers. From the Pittsburgh Penguins, James Neal. From the Phoenix Coyotes, Keith Yandle. From the Dallas Stars, Brenden Morrow. Former Carolina Hurricane, Boston Bruin, and Detroit Viper Sergei Samsonov.
