Moore, Jessiman to participate in local charity game
Wednesday June 17th 2009, 9:04 pm

Hartford Wolf Pack forward Greg Moore and former New York Rangers first round draft pick Hugh Jessiman (yep, it still hurts to say) are amongst a group of NHL, AHL and former college players who will participate in a charity hockey game at the Darien Ice Rink in Darien, CT on July 1st.  The Big Assist, the brainchild of Darien native and Ottawa Senators forward Ryan Shannon, will raise money for the Obie Harrington-Howes Foundation, which provides financial assistance to Connecticut residents living with spinal cord injuries.

Other players confirmed for the exhibition match include Martin St. Louis of the Tampa Bay Lightning, Tampa prospect and former Providence/Boston Bruin Matt Lashoff, Toronto Maple Leafs prospect Jaime Sifers, and Los Angeles Kings prospect and Manchester Monarch Matt Moulson.

The puck drops at 7:00pm on Wednesday, July 1st.  Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for kids under 18 and can be purchased online.  The evening will include a silent auction of sports memorabilia and the players game-worn jerseys will be autographed and sold or auctioned following the event. For a full list of invitees and confirmed participants, or for more information, visit the OHHF web site.
