Oilers alumni come together for another ‘Hockey Helps the Homeless’ tournament in Edmonton

Hockey Helps the Homeless Tournament on May 3rd in Edmonton has 22 players signed up to play with many Oilers Alumni favourites taking part. Teams are bought in by business sponsors who fundraise to earn first draft in picking their teams. The games are free to watch in-person with a silent auction during the event. Proceeds from this year’s games will support The Mustard Seed, Jasper Place Wellness Centre, and Kids Kottage.
