Another Good Cause.

For those of you unfamiliar, there is a fan organization involved with the Washington Capitals called "Put Cancer on Ice," an organization that essentially builds a community of hockey fans in the DC area, and contributes money towards cancer research. Monthly hockey games and an annual golf tournament have raised over $7,000 towards cancer charities.

This month's hockey game will take place at the Capitals Kettler Ice Complex on Sunday, July 29th, from 2-3:30 pm. In response to the recent passing of Caps' beat writer Dave Fay, all proceeds from the game will be donated to Hockey Fights Cancer, in Mr. Fay's name.

If you are interested in playing the game, the information is on PCOI's website. I encourage everyone to come out, watch the game, and throw in some pocket change to a good cause. I shall attempt to be in attendance, but can make no promises due to family obligations.

EDIT: The day is still July 29th, but that's a Sunday, not a Saturday.

"Put Cancer On Ice"

Does this involve the Caps signing Yashin at all?
