As we pointed out last week, the Anaheim Ducks hosted the 15th annual Fedorin Cup charity hockey game on August 25th. The game was played in a Team USA vs Team Canada format, and had a mixed roster of NHL stars, prospects, and a few local players. Teemu Selanne, George Parros, Luca Sbisa, Sean Pronger, and Todd Marchant were among those on the ice.
After being down 8-9, George Parros scored the game-tying goal for Team USA, forcing overtime which would eventually lead to Team USA’s win in the shootout. True to form, Parros also participated in a “fight” on the ice (or as close as you’re likely to get to a fight in a Charity game).
For those unfamiliar with the Fedorin Cup charity event, the club provides the following background information:
The Fedorin Cup was founded in 1998 by THE RINKS hockey manager Rick Hutchinson in honor of Eric Fedorin, a local hockey player who battled brain cancer. … Festivities also include a silent auction, a postgame VIP party at Anaheim ICE on the Plaza and casino-style gaming. Fans can also help to fundraise by purchasing opportunity drawing tickets, with a free weekend rental of a Harley Davidson motorcycle or a Jaguar sports car serving as the top prizes.
