ECAC college hockey teams are competing on the ice this season--but also off it in an effort to raise money for local charities.
Organized by Colgate senior Kevin McNamara, Goals for Good will raise thousands of dollars thanks to the student-athletes' efforts. All 12 schools are involved.
The players are involved in a variety of activities, some connected to the games, but to make one last push to raise money, the Colgate team has put together an online auction of signed sports memorabilia. Funds raised will go to a memorial fund for a former Colgate athlete who died last year of a rare form of cancer. The auction ends on Saturday. Items up for bid include:
Sidney Crosby signed Penguins jersey
Jim Craig signed Team USA jersey
Henrik Lundqvist, Marian Gaborik, Dan Girardi, Carl Hagelin signed NHL All-Star Game jersey
Ray Allen signed Boston Celtics jersey
Taylor Hall signed Oilers jersey
Stick signed by the 2011-12 Ottawa Senators
Ryan Kessler signed Bauer X:60 stick
Eric Staal signed Bauer TotalOne stick
Martin St. Louis signed replica stick
