4 Former NHL Players Coming to Rome for Benefit Hockey Game
4 former NHL players will be hitting the ice at Kennedy Arena in Rome this Saturday. For the 1st time in 8 years, The Bobby Page Memorial Foundation will hold what was once an annual benefit hockey game. Here's who will be lacing up the skates.
Aaron Page from the foundation says they held the first game in 2005 when his brother, Bobby first became ill. After his passing, they turned it into the foundation we know today benefiting kids. Scheduling conflicts caused the annual game to go on hold in 2010. Here are the former NHL players taking part in the Bobby Page Memorial Foundation VS Central New York All-Stars hockey game.
