Fans attending the sold-out Goals for Dreams Hockey Challenge on Saturday will get the opportunity to rub elbows with some of the NHL’s biggest names.

Prior to the puck drop at 3:30 p.m., players will be signing autographs on the concourse of Max Bell Arena on the University of Manitoba’s Fort Garry campus.

Players attending the 2 p.m. signing include Andrew Ladd, Marks Stuart, Jonathan Toews, Shea Weber, Duncan Keith, Mike Richards, Brian Little, Olli Jokinen, Jim Slater, Zach Bogosian, Tanner Glass, Shane Hnidy, Ryan Reaves, Troy Brouwer, Colin Wilson, Gregory Campbell, Andrew Reimer, Chris Mason, Ryan Garbutt, and retired NHL referee Ron Hoggarth.

The challenge will see NHLPA players facing off against the Winnipeg Police Service Patrolmen Hockey Club.

Proceeds from the game will go to support the Dream Factory and Children’s Hospital Foundation.
