Some young hockey players took to the ice at The College at Brockport Saturday afternoon for a good cause.

The Tri-County Youth Hockey team put together a fundraiser to benefit the West Webster Fire Department as part of its exhibition game against Webster.

The idea for the game actually came from one of the young players who wanted to honor the fallen firefighters.

“So we decided to put the fundraiser together and go out and get prizes and make it a fun event with music and try to make it like a big game for the kids,” said the team's assistant coach, whose son came up with the idea for the game.

The team's head coach challenged the kids to hold a fundraiser at the beginning of the year and as a deputy fire chief in Churchville he says this particular cause means a lot to everyone involved.
