The event 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 Nichols' foundation and the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation, which is dedicated to advancing quality of life and discovering cures for spinal cord injuries.
Among the former NHL players scheduled to participate in the game are Devils great Ken Daneyko, ex-Rangers Tom Laidlaw, Tie Domi and Brad Richards, and former Islanders goalie Rick DiPietro.
