Stepan Spearheads Charity Hockey Game

stepanPatrick Johnson at the South Washington County Bulletin reports that nearly 1,500 watched over 30 NHL players go head-to-head in the first-ever Stepan/Chorney/Taffe NHL Players Charity Hockey Game in Hastings, Minnesota.

Derek Stepan along with other Hastings natives Jeff Taffe (Wild) and Taylor Chorney (Oilers) spearheaded the event in hopes of giving back to their community and the sport they love.

Proceeds from the game benefit the Cottage Grove Hockey Association, the Hastings Hockey Association and Defending The Blue Line

“I grew up and played in Hastings and Hastings gave me a lot,” Stepan said. “Anytime you can donate back you do it in a heartbeat. I was fortunate enough to have a group of people that did all the work and got this set up. A lot of people put in a lot of hours on this. It was something special that I was very happy to do.”

Other players taking part in the charity game included Brent Burns of the San Jose Sharks, Zach Parise of the New Jersey Devils, Paul Martin of the Pittsburgh Penguins, Thomas Vanek of the Buffalo Sabres, Kyle Okposo from the New York Islanders and Jamie McBain from the Carolina Hurricanes.

…great job by Stepan. Love hearing that part of the proceeds went to my friends at Defending the Blue Line.
