DETAILS:      The second annual Hendrickson Foundation National Hockey Festival brings the post-season hockey tournament experience to hockey players from all over North American with various disabilities to compete in three separate disabled hockey divisions: Sled, Special and Wounded Warriors. A total of 32 teams from six states and two provinces are scheduled to participate in this year’s tournament. Every event during the weekend is free to attendees, including the banquet, chuck-a-puck contest and celebrity game on Saturday.

 

*Players scheduled to participate in the celebrity hockey game include: Keith Ballard, Brian Bonin, Aaron Broten, Paul Broten, Andrew Brunette, Dave Christian, Matt Cooke, Joe Dziedzic, Danny Hendrickson, Darby Hendrickson, Brian Lawton, Jordan Leopold, Ryan Malone, Chris McAlpine, Jeff Nielsen, Mark Parrish, Erik Rasmussen, Wes Walz and Tom Younghans.

 

*Minnesota Wild players Charlie Coyle, Chris Stewart and Jason Zucker are scheduled to attend the banquet Saturday afternoon.

 

The goal of the Hendrickson Foundation is to help athletes with disabilities positively change their lives through the sport of hockey. Helping deserving individuals with disabilities develop self-confidence has been our purpose since the beginning. Whether the player used a wheelchair, suffered a loss of limb, has intellectual disabilities or was wounded serving our country in the military, the Hendrickson Foundation supports a program for them.  #HOCKEYCHANGESLIVES
