Jersey Auction, Ahoy!
Speaking of MSG, does anyone remember the camouflage jerseys that the Big Red wore during the second period of the game? Those very jerseys are being auctioned off with funds going toward the Wounded Warrior Project. Collectively, the jerseys are going for over $15,000. This is a great cause, and the more money raised for the project, the better. Bidding through the website goes through December 6th with final voting via email on the seventh.
During the last home game against St. Lawrence, Cornell held their annual teddy-bear toss which, according to the Cornell Hockey Association page, was a success. Money raised from purchases of the bears went to the Franziska Racker Centers and the Cancer Resource Center of the Finger Lakes, while the bears themselves were donated to the Cops, Kids, and Toys foundation.
Back in October, Brianne Jenner made known her mission to raise money through a goal drive for Madison Primeau, a young girl undergoing cancer treatment who Jenner knows. Each sponsor will donate one dollar for every goal Jenner posts throughout the season. Last season she posted 20 goals, and as of now she is up to nine. All the money donated goes directly to her medical expenses. As far as we know, she is still collecting sponsors (see the website for information on how to contact Jenner). But on a related but happy note, here is Madison, modeling a signed jersey from the Cornell Women's team.
Though he is still on the roster on the official Crimson site, Over the Boards tweeted that Steve Michalek, one of Harvard's goaltenders who saw a decent amount of playing time last year but none yet this year, has in fact reported to Cedar Rapids (USHL). On top of that, there are now rumors that another Harvard player, sophomore defenseman Max Everson (younger brother of senior Marshall Everson) will be doing the same.
