Denver - The Denver Cutthroats President and Head Coach Derek Armstrong will coach opposite former Colorado Avalanche center Pierre Turgeon at 3:00 PM on Saturday, June 21 at Edge Ice Arena in Littleton, Colo. for Dawg Nation's Annual "Survivor Game."

"It is always amazing to participate in such an event and give back to the community," expressed Armstrong.
