Eight former NHL players made their way up for the charity event, including Calgary Flames alumni Colin Patterson, Perry Berezan, Jamie Macoun and Dana Murzyn.

Former Edmonton Oilers players Sean Brown, Dave Lumley, Fernando Pisani and Mark Fistric also played in the charity game.

But the real winner of the night was the NWT Disabilities Council, the beneficiary of the annual fundraiser.

It remains to be seen exactly how much was raised Saturday.

Previous events have raised tens of thousands of dollars for deserving families and causes in Yellowknife and beyond, including over $18,000 last year for the family of Deagan Clavette and YK Cares.
