Last weekend, the NJ Colonial Coaches hosted the NJ Devil Alumni at Mennen Arena for a benefit hockey game. The “War to Restore NJ, Hockey Night in Morristown” was the brain-child of Sue DeBoer, (Peter DeBoer’s wife) and the first time the NJ Colonial Coaches played the Devils alumni in a charity event. Monies were raised for local charities to assist those in need affected by Hurricane Sandy, including the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund founded by Mary Pat Christie. In addition to 100% of the proceeds going to charity, there was also a food drive for the Interfaith Food Pantry serving the Morris County Area.
Ladies and gentlemen we have us some hockey! Tomorrow night at 7 P.M. Ken Daneyko, Bruce Driver, John MacLean and Sergei Brylin will team up with head coach Peter DeBoer to take on the New Jersey Colonials Coaching Staff at Mennen Arena in Morristown. This is going to be a benefit game to support those affected by Hurricane Sandy.

The New Jersey Colonials are a youth travel hockey organization celebrating 40 years of skating at a highly competitive level. Their Hockey Directors have assembled a winning staff of coaches who have taken their teams to States, Districts and National Championships and have competed for some of the most prestigious Cups in youth hockey.
