Pups vs. Pros hockey game hits Copper Mountain (photos)
March 3, 2017
Three former NHL players served as the celebrities in a Pros vs. Pups benefit pond hockey game Saturday at Copper Mountain.
The pros — Milan Hejduk, Derek Armstrong and Jan Hejda — were also auctioned off to play for teams in other tournament games.
It was all part of a bigger fundraisier for Dave Repsher and his wife, Amanda Soychak, over the weekend at the ski resort.
Dave Repsher, a Flight For Life nurse, suffered burns to more than 90 percent of his body in a July 2015 helicopter crash. Overall, last weekend's events raised more than $50,000 for the couple, according to organizers.
