TJ Oshie, David Backes, And Chris Porter to Participate In Charity Game

The good state of Minnesota's called out to some of the NHL's best and brightest to do it a solid, and they've lined up for a charity hockey game on July 20th to benefit the Hastings Hockey Association, the Cottage Grove Hockey Association, and Defending the Blue Line. Defending the Blue Line is a charity formed by servicemen in order to support the children of servicemembers in their hockey endeavors. It was also the favorite charity of late New York Rangers and Minnesota Wild enforcer Derek Boogaard.


The roster of NHLers is impressive. The Blues' own TJ Oshie, David Backes, and Chris Porter will be participating, as will Blake Wheeler, Eric Johnson, Kyle Okposo, Paul Martin, Jordan Leopold, and Zach Parise amongst others.
