Devils' Cam Janssen organizes Hurricane Sandy benefit game



Quote:
St. Louis Blues players T.J. Oshie, David Backes, Andy McDonald, Kevin Shattenkirk, Scott Nichol, Alex Pietrangelo, Barret Jackman and Jamie Rivers will join Janssen and Jamal Mayers (Blackhawks), Jim Campbell and Chris Butler (Flames). The two goalies will be Ty Conklin and Brian Elliott.

Also taking part will be guys Janssen played with while growing up. Most played college and junior hockey.

“My whole premise is to have as fast-paced, legitimate an NHL game as possible,” Janssen said.

The event is called Cam Janssen Fights Sandy—Hockey Helps Rebuild.

“It came about when I was sitting on the couch watching the Weather Channel and flipping back and forth to the news,” Janssen said. “It kind of popped into my head and I discussed it with my fiancee, Kate. We didn’t know what was going to happen with the NHL stoppage, so we said this might be a good time frame.”

Good for him to plan and organize this. I hope they get a good turnout. Maybe Janssen will fight Mayers or Jackman.

Good for him, classy gesture by a guy whose fans were affected by the storm.

I'm sure Cam will see more than 5-6 mins ice time in this tilt

lol, yup.

But seriously, good for Cam. Might I even consider paying to watch some NHL players skate around? Maybe for this...

Somewhere in the world fcm is wondering why the hell Cam Janssen is forcing a bunch of NHL players to play a game in response to a passing rain shower.
