The fifth annual Mikey Strong Charity Hockey Game to benefit spinal cord research and quality-of-life initiatives will take place Friday, March 22, at 7 p.m. at Prudential Center in Newark. Tickets are on sale now through Ticketmaster.

The event featuring NHL alumni is named for Mikey Nichols, who suffered a C-5 fracture during a game for Monroe High School (N.J.) in January 2014. Proceeds from the benefit will go to the Nichols Family Trust to provide for Nichols' medical needs as well as to the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation, which is dedicated to curing spinal cord injuries by funding innovative research and improving the quality of life for individuals living with paralysis. The presenting sponsor, M&M’s, is also returning for a third year to help raise awareness for Nichols and his work to elevate the needs of the paralysis community.

WFAN, the New Jersey Devils and the Prudential Center are teaming up to host the event. Don't miss out when Boomer and Gio are joined on the ice by NHL alumni Bryce Salvador, Ken Daneyko, Bruce Driver, Jim Dowd, Mike Rupp, Rick DiPietro, Colton Orr, Rob Scuderi, Arron Asham and many more.

General admission tickets cost $25, and corporate sponsorship packages also available. The first 5,000 attendees will receive a voucher for two complimentary tickets to a select Yankees game during the 2019 season, a voucher for two complimentary tickets to a select Red Bulls game during the 2019 season and a voucher for two complimentary tickets to a select Devils game during the 2019-20 season.
