Michigan Hockey’s Michael Caples reports that the “Play With Purpose” hockey game will return to USA Hockey Arena in Plymouth on Tuesday, August 16th:

For the third straight offseason, the Play With Purpose Charity Game will be taking place in Metro Detroit for a good cause.

On Aug. 16, some big hockey names will gather at USA Hockey Arena in Plymouth for the annual event, put on by Gallagher-Kaiser and presented by Hockey Has Heart.

This year, the event will once again raise money to support distracted driving awareness initiatives with the PEERS Foundation, #HandsFreeMichigan and B.R.A.K.E.S.

“We are excited to once again be part of such a meaningful event,” said Bob Kaiser, owner and CEO of Gallagher-Kaiser. “As a company with a strong commitment to safety, we have continuously supported organizations dedicated to keeping our communities safe, with a primary focus on eliminating distracted driving. The Play With Purpose game provides an opportunity to have a great time with family and friends, while simultaneously raising awareness for a meaningful cause.”

Players already committed to attending include Zach Werenski, Danny DeKeyser, Steve Oleksy and Austin Czarnik, as well as NHL alums Kris Draper, Mickey Redmond, Joey Kocur, David Legwand, Darren McCarty and Tie Domi.
