The NHL vs. Docs fundraiser, hosted by CBJ captain Nick Foligno, will take place August 11 in Sudbury, ON with the goal of raising funds and awareness of expanding pediatric care options in the Greater Sudbury area.

Tweet from @NickFoligno: Thanks for sharing what we���re trying to do up here in @GreaterSudbury to benefit ALL KIDS in Northern Ontario! Appreciate the support from the players and Docs but more importantly the communities up here! We need to get this built for the kids! #NHLvsDocs #sudbury https://t.co/dcXMsCVWQO

Representing the Blue Jackets will be Foligno, Cam Atkinson, Josh Anderson, Pierre-Luc Dubois and Seth Jones. Also in attendance will be; Tyler Bertuzzi, Matt Duchene, John Travares and Marc Staal.
