Chris Johnston@reporterchris
Kevin Bieksa will host a charity game in Vancouver on Oct. 17 with the Sedins, Hamhuis, Malhotra, Lapierre, Schneider and others.

Brad Ziemer@BradZiemer
Tickets for Bieksa's Buddies charity game vs UBC TBirds on Oct. 17 are $20 each plus service charges.


Locked out Vancouver Canucks defenceman Kevin Bieksa will be joined by current and former teammates for the Bieksa’s Buddies charity game versus the UBC Thunderbirds men’s hockey team on October 17.
The game will be held at UBC’s Doug Mitchell Sports Centrea at 7 p.m. Tickets will go on sale on Saturday through Ticketmaster.
Net proceeds from the game will benefit Canuck Place Children’s Hospice, Canucks Autism Network, and the Canucks Family Education Centre.
Bieksa will be joined by Daniel and Henrik Sedin, Dan Hamhuis, Manny Malhotra, Max Lapierre, Cory Schneider, 2012 Stanley Cup Champion Willie Mitchell and others.

“We understand that there are many people impacted by the NHL lockout and we know charities such as Canuck Place Children’s Hospice, Canucks Family Education Centre, and Canucks Autism Network need funds to continue operating their progras,” said Bieksa. “These organizations do great work for our community. It is important for my buddies and I to lend a hand and with the help of the UBC Thunderbirds we have the perfect opportunity to do so.”
Tickets can be purchased by logging on to www.ticketmaster.ca or by calling 1-855-985-5000.

Cool! There have been a few other charity games run by the locked out players. Nice to know they're making great use of their time!

Classy move making it a game for charity. I'll definitely be going.

Even though I'm sure ticketmaster will be raping everyone with service charges. Bastards added a $18.75 service charge to $125 Steel Panther tickets for New Years Eve

You think that's bad? I just bought a pair of tickets off of Ticketmaster today for $25 a piece. They charged me $11 in service charges EACH

Service fees should be capped. There should be a minimum dollar amount. Something like $4 and also a maximum % of the total price. They charged you a service fee of 44%. That should be illegal. Even the mafia doesn't ream people that hard.

P.S. Good on Juice and the boys putting this together.

It's stories like this (along with the Sedins donation to children hospital and Hamhuis' recent donation to Ronald McDonald house) are just so inspiring. It shows that there really are some players out there that truly care. Sure they have more money than most of us so giving a chunk like they do to charity would not affect them as much as if the avergae person does but still. It doesn't matter how much you give, it truly is the thought that is so inspiring.

Good on them, I hope they film a bit of it and upload on here. Would be a good watch :)

Thread title is a bit misleading as this is a game put on by a bunch of locked out hockey players.The Canucks have nothing to do it.

More like Owners putting locked out players on the ice due to obligation and as part of their contract. Portion going to the team of course {wink wink}

Any chance we'll see this streamed on the Canucks website or put on TV? Would love to see it, but can't make the trip out living in Alberta.

This isn't affiliated with the Canucks at all so it definitely won't be streamed online. I think the most we'll get to see is highlights on sportsnet.

Since there is a fixed price, I'm guessing the seats are first come, first serve?
