Blake Geoffrion Hockey Classic rosters released

New, 2 comments

In anticipation of the upcoming Blake Geoffrion Hockey Classic, we were able to chat with the Hobey Baker winner about the star-studded rosters.

The rosters for the 2014 Blake Geoffrion Hockey Classic were released this week, so we thought it would be a good time to talk to the Hobey Baker Award winner about the game. Blake was gracious enough to take a few minutes out of his day to talk about the event, which should be amazing by looking at the rosters.

By my count, 20 players scheduled to appear have spent time in the NHL during their careers. That's a lot of talent on one sheet of ice for a charity game.

The charity game will benefit the UW Health Burn Center, which is one of only 64 verified burn centers in the U.S., and it has just seven beds. One third of its admissions are children 17 and younger.

The game is June 27 at 6:30 p.m. at LaBahn Arena in Madison. Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for children. All proceeds will benefit the Burn Center. Also, 2014-15 UW season ticket holders who purchase Hockey Classic tickets will be eligible to receive exclusive access to a free post-game meet-and-greet with the players.

Tickets are available at the UW ticket office or UWBadgers.com.
