Da Beauty League
For another summer, Panthers forward Nick Bjugstad will lace up his skates and take part in Da Beauty League, a 4-on-4 hockey league made up of NHL players and top amateurs.
All proceeds from the Da Beauty League will go charities such as the United Heroes League, which helps provide hockey equipment, game tickets, cash grants and funding for summer camps to military families in the U.S. and Canada.
Last summer, Bjugstad finished tied for second in the league in scoring after notching 18 points (11-7-18) in eight games.
He will once again suit up for team RBC, as they are the defending champions from last season.
Games will also be live streamed at www.dabeautyleague.com.
Fans can also bid on game worn jerseys until July 24th by heading HERE.
