More Info

Due to unforeseen damage to the Evergreen Rink this week, they have shut down the ice until  they're able to make repairs. Though they were on target to finish before Saturday, we found out today that the snow storm has pushed their timeline beyond this weekend. Alas, the event continues! In John Palffy fashion, there is always another plan. 

New Agenda for Saturday:

  • 11am-12:45pm: Ice Skating at the Downtown Denver Rink in Skyline Park. This is public skating. No sticks/puck. Skate rentals available. Click here for more info.
  • 1pm -3pm: Detroit style pizza and beers at Jagged Mountain Brewery. Following skating, we'll walk to Jagged Mountain for a taste of Detroit. We'll have reserved tables, a $150 bar tab, and Detroit style pizza from Blue Pan Pizza (beer and pizza are first come, first served).
  • All are welcome and costumes are still encouraged! Look for Torie in her hotdog suit.
  • Please RSVP to You can also reach out with any questions.

In Michigan, the traditional Saturday Game will continue as planned. We can't wait to see everyone in MI and CO, and we can't thank you all enough for the support.


We're back! Join us for drop-in pond hockey and open skating at Evergreen Lake (CO) to help raise money for the University of Michigan Rogel Cancer Center. Don't live in CO? Rep a shirt or consider a small donation!

On Saturday, February 8, join us for drop-in pond hockey and open skating (all skill levels welcome) at Evergreen Lake, recognized by CNN as one of the world's most beautiful rinks. Not sure you want to hit the ice? Check out the details below for more ways to get involved.

Colorado Cancer Shutout 2020

Thanks to all of the incredible support from last year's Colorado Cancer Shutout, we were able to start a fund with and donate $15,000 to the University of Michigan Rogel Cancer Center, one of the best cancer centers in the world. Funds specifically benefit esophageal cancer research (learn more about esophageal cancer here). As our dad fought his own case of esophageal cancer with the support of these same doctors, this event was the rallying cry of our friends, family, and community. In honor of World Cancer Day, we're carrying on the torch and continuing the fight. So, let's drop the gloves.

Join us for a day of casual drop-in hockey and open skating! Donations optional.

What: Drop-in pond hockey (all skill levels welcome) + open skating + t-shirts. Private warming hut will be available (BYOB). Can't make it? Buy a t-shirt or donate the amount of your choice!

When: Saturday, February 8th from 11am - 2pm.

Where: Evergreen Lake in Evergreen, Colorado

Shirt Details

What's the shirt about? There's no such thing as too many t-shirts. On the front left chest, the adapted tournament logo. The back is home to a large University of Michigan block M, and a call to join us in this fight against esophageal cancer. Shirts are available as 1) classic men's cut, 100% pre-shrunk cotton, Fruit of the Loom or 2) Premium Next Level cotton/poly blend...a.k.a. soft.
