With charity being the focus of the day, the players will separate into groups for the golf tournament under NHL player team captains, with each team playing for charities that are meaningful to and chosen by them. Since its inception 23 years ago, the NHLPA’s annual golf tournament has raised more than $3.4 million for countless charitable causes.
