The agreement to start the NHL season has a lot of folks excited, but it will create disappointment for some.  The reason?  The Johnstown Tomahawks Charity Classic scheduled for Wednesday night has been cancelled.

Upcoming training camp and insurance concerns about potential player injury contributed to the decision to cancel the game.  Pittsburgh Penguin Matt Cooke was a driving force behind the creation of the charity game.  He thanks the fans and said, "We apologize we are unable to make this game a reality because of the start of the NHL season, but we will look at other opportunities to assist the Pittsburgh Kids Foundation and the Johnstown community."

Hockey fans who have tickets for the Charity Classic will be able to get full refunds through the authorized ticket outlet where tickets were purchased.  These include the War Memorial Box Office, the Johnstown Tomahawks front office and Ticketmaster.  Refunds will begin at 10am on Monday, January 14th.  Get more info at
