I posted a similar messages a couple of days ago about an auction going on in support of Sebastien Savage. This is a guy I knew fairly well, so it definitely touches home a bit. He was the type of player that didn't have the most skill, but always came to the rink with a hard hat and bucket.

I've never been a huge supporter of Don Cherry, but one thing I have always agreed with him on was automatic icing. This incident happened while Savage and an opposing defensman were racing into the corner following the puck. IMO, automatic icing is one of the biggest rules that needs to be inforced in NHL hockey. Just a couple years before, the 67's saw another player, their captain, go down with a serious injury because of the touch-icing rule. He fell knee first into the boards and missed the rest of the season (around Dec/Jan), including the playoffs.

Anyway, I believe that most, if not all auctions end tomorrow around noon!

THERE ARE SEVERAL ARTICLES FROM MOST NHL TEAMS (others from the OHL, WHL and AHL)


BACKGROUND INFO:
The Ottawa 67's along with help from the Ottawa Senators and the Ontario Hockey League have organized this auction in support of Sebastien Savage, a former 67's player. Sebastien was left quadriplegic following a fall while playing for the University of Moncton on October 22, 2005. Show your support to a player whose life drastically changed while playing the game we all love. All proceeds from the auction and puck sales will go to the Sebastien Savage Foundation.
