It was ideal weather on Saturday for an outdoor hockey scrimmage, and that’s exactly what members of the Winnipeg Police Service did to raise money for a worthwhile cause.

The Winnipeg Police Patrolmen took on the Winnipeg Hockey Legends during Hockey Day in Elmwood-East Kildonan at the Kelvin Community Centre.

City councillor and former Winnipeg Jet Thomas Steen laced up, along with other former NHL players Trevor Kidd, Perry Miller and Carey Wilson.

The day raised funds for the family of fallen Toronto police Sgt. Ryan Russell, who was killed by a stolen snow plow while on duty January 12.
