Local boy, Brendan Gallagher of the Montreal Canadiens (and formerly of the Vancouver Giants), is hosting a charity softball game this Wednesday.
The game is at Nat Bailey Stadium beginning at 7:00pm and tickets are just $5. All proceeds from the 1st annual Celebrity Softball Classic will go to support the Shriners Hospital for Children.
Some of the players expected to play include: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Morgan Rielly, Alex Galchenyuk, Nathan Beaulieu, Brendan Dillon, Lance Bouma, Landon Ferraro, Kyle Wellwood, the Reinhart brothers (Sam, Griffin and Max) and father/son combo Cliff and Ty Ronning.
Fans will also get a chance to chant “Eddie Eddie” once again, as Eddie Lack was just announced as a late addition to the game:

Something tells me Lack won’t have any trouble finding some tacos to eat…
