Geoffrion brings together former Badgers for charity

Posted: Updated:
MADISON, WI (WKOW) -- Former Badger men's hockey player Blake Geoffrion assembled an all-star cast Friday night in a scrimmage to raise money for charity.

The Hobey Baker award-winner joined former Badger greats and current NHL players for the Blake Geoffrion Hockey Classic at LaBahn Arena to benefit the UW Health Burn Center.

The event consisted of a Red-White scrimmage, meet and greet with players and a silent auction, raising more than $70,000, according to Geoffrion.

The roster included Badger alumni Adam Burish, Ryan Suter, Derek Stepan, Ryan McDonagh, and Brian Elliott, as well as recent graduates Michael Mersch, Frankie Simonelli, Jefferson Dahl, Tyler Barnes, and Jake McCabe.

The fun-loving event ended with a 15-13 White team win.
