Lace up your skates and get ready to cheer for a good cause, New Yorkers. This Friday, December 1, the Springfield Thunderbirds will face off against the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins, but what's heating up the ice pregame is the true opener—cops swinging sticks for charity. According to Springfield Police Department's Facebook post, the boys in blue from the Springfield Police hockey squad will clash with their brothers, the Mass State Police Hockey, in a preliminary game sure to pack a wallop at 5:00 p.m.
A portion of the ticket proceeds from this stick-clashing event will support the Noble Hockey For Heroes Foundation foundation, dedicated to aiding our local heroes. It seems doing good never felt so thrilling—or competitive.
Fans looking to witness this benevolent brawl and support the cause can zap that QR code or give a jingle to the Thunderbirds at 413-417-2296 to snag their seats.
