Stamkos and Subban headline charity game at former Maple Leaf Gardens

TORONTO - A group of NHL stars is set to take the ice again at Maple Leaf Gardens.

Steven Stamkos and P.K. Subban are scheduled to lead teams of locked-out NHLers during a charity game on Dec. 19. It will be held at Ryerson University's new Mattamy Athletic Centre, which is located inside the building the Toronto Maple Leafs called home from 1931 to 1999.

The proceeds from the game will benefit the NHLPA's Goals & Dreams fund and RBC's Play Hockey initiative.

"(It) is a great opportunity to share the joy and excitement of hockey with our fans," Stamkos said Wednesday in a release. "I'm looking forward to playing alongside this impressive lineup of fellow NHL players while helping to raise funds to benefit local hockey programs across the country."

Among the other players set to attend are James Neal, Logan Couture, Dion Phaneuf, Phil Kessel, Tomas Kaberle, Mike Komisarek, Kris Versteeg, Niklas Kronwall and John-Michael Liles.

Tickets will be on sale starting Thursday at a price of $25.

Note to readers: This is a corrected story. A previous version said tickets went on sale Friday.

We're buyers. We're committed to winning. That's what [owner Vinnie Viola] has said all along and what we've said all along. We want to win. We want to win a championship. We're putting the pieces together, step by step, and we're hopeful that Jaromir can lead these young guys to the promised land. It's a win-win for us.
