In the meantime, Nieuwendyk joins the likes of Keith Primeau and Jeff O'Neill for the Stars of Hockey charity game tonight at the Oshawa Civic Centre. Proceeds will go to the Shoot for a Cure program to aid spinal
cord research, as well as the minor hockey systems in both Oshawa and Whitby.
"I grew up playing hockey in Whitby, so it's nice to give something back," Nieuwendyk said.
Tickets are still available through Ticketmaster.
