Minnesota is selling alumni autographed pucks (like the Alex Goligoski one above) at the Dec. 10 games for $10. All proceeds will benefit Toys for Tots.
The University of Minnesota will be selling a limited supply of autographed men's hockey alumni hockey pucks at the Saturday, Dec. 10 game against Michigan Tech.
The pucks, which are $10 each, will be available behind section 2 in Mariucci Arena. All proceeds will benefit the U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots foundation. All transactions must be made in cash.
Get your pucks as soon as you enter the arena, as they sold out prior to the start of the game last Friday. Gopher hockey players will go shopping on Monday for toys that will then be donated to Toys for Tots.
The M-logo pucks have been signed by one of the following alumni: Thomas Vanek, Alex Goligoski, Blake Wheeler, Paul Martin, Jordan Leopold, Keith Ballard, Ryan Potulny, Grant Potulny, Jeff Taffe, Mike Hoeffel, Tony Lucia and Aaron Ness.
The pucks, which will make great holiday gifts, will be wrapped, so fans will not know whose autograph they are getting until they have purchased the puck and opened it.
The objectives of Toys for Tots are to help less fortunate children throughout the United States experience the joy of Christmas; to play an active role in the development of one of our nation's most valuable resources - our children; to unite all members of local communities in a common cause for three months each year during the annual toy collection and distribution campaign; and to contribute to better communities in the future.
