Kris Versteeg, Nicklas Kronwall and John-Michael Liles, to help raise funds for grassroots hockey initiatives across the country. The RBC Play Hockey Charity Challenge is a joint-venture between the National Hockey League Players’ Association and RBC to celebrate the spirit of hockey and the spirit of giving back.

Hard not to be cynical about this but I wonder who the goalies will be.

I am surprised that Versteeg is willing to return here voluntarily - I thought he couldn't wait to escape Toronto. Then again, can you blame him?
