Is it October yet?
Sadly no - but it is August 1st so we are one step closer to the start of the NHL Regular season. It is now August and we haven't seen a live hockey game played since June and Kovalchuk still doesn't have a home. What are we going to do with ourselves?
Well those that are in Plymouth, Michigan area I have a game for you!
This coming Saturday (August 7th) the Plymouth Whalers are having an Alumni Game.
The Whalers are a member of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) and play out of the Compuware Arena in Plymouth, Michigan.
Saturday's game will feature cu rent NHL players: James Neal from the Dallas Stars, Jared Boll from the Columbus Blue Jackets, and Justin Peters in net from the Carolina Hurricanes. Along with hometown players like James Wisniewski from the New York Islanders who grew up in Canton, Fraser-native Chad LaRose from the Carolina Hurricanes and David Legwand the Grosse Pointe Woods-native who plays for the Nashville Predators.
Game starts at 4:30 p.m. on August 7th and tickets are $10 and proceeds go to the Hope for Autism Foundation and Autism Compass. Before the game there will be a meet-and-greet with the players that you will need a game ticket to attend.
An added bonus is that ticket stub from the Alumni Game can be redeemed for tickets to the Whalers home opener.
To purchase tickets for the Alumni Game (or the home opener or heck any other game this season) stop by the Compuware Arena Box Office or call (734) 453-8400
