Kevin Bieksa will participate in a charity game called Bieksa's Buddies against the UBC Thunderbirds men's hockey team on October 17th.
"We understand that there are many people impacted by the NHL lockout and we know charities such as Canuck Place Children's Hospice, Canucks Family Education Centre, and Canucks Autism Network need funds to continue operating their progras," said Bieksa. "These organizations do great work for our community. It is important for my buddies and I to lend a hand and with the help of the UBC Thunderbirds we have the perfect opportunity to do so." His 'buddies' will include Daniel and Henrik Sedin, Dan Hamhuis, Manny Malhotra, Max Lapierre, Cory Schneider and Willie Mitchell among others.
