The players will wear a special jersey which will be auctioned off immediately after the "Legends" game. A portion of the proceeds will go to benefit Children's Miracle Network.
"We are really excited about this reunion of Richmond professional hockey players and it should make for a fun hockey day," stated Allan B. Harvie, Jr., Renegades President and GM. "There are a lot of other players who we are still trying to contact and we welcome the public to call us if they have contact information on any former Richmond players."
