Now that the NHL is looking to start up soon lets not forget that these are not the only hockey athletes we have.
In fact college hockey has been here all along.
On February 2nd college hockey returns to Joe Louis Arena in Detroit with a cause other than playing hated rivals: Battle of the Badges
Battle of the Badges is a fundraiser for Play4Autism and the American Special Hockey Association (ASHA) . This event will benefit both organizations whose mission is to help increase awareness of Autism while improving the quality of life for those living within the Autism spectrum.
There will be two games at the Joe on Saturday February 2nd
Game one will be between U of M and MSU starting at 4:00 p.m.
Game two is the Battle of the Badges Championship Game at 8:00 p.m.
Play4Autism is hosting a number of tournaments around the country and the winner at each event will advance to a “Best of the Best” Play4Autism Champions Week.
The “Best of the Best” week will be held during Autism Awareness month in April of 2014 in none other than Detroit.
