USA Hockey to partner with C.S. Mott Children's Hospital for event.

USA Hockey's National Team Development Program will host their annual Star Wars Night on Saturday, Jan. 28, 2017, at USA Hockey Arena. The game, which is sponsored locally by Hines Park Lincoln, will pit the U.S. National Under-17 Team against the Tri-City Storm of the United States Hockey League.

For the fourth time, Team USA will wear Star Wars inspired jerseys during this event. Previous designs included Darth Vader (2014), Han Solo (2015) and the iconic Stormtrooper (2016). This season’s look will feature a fan favorite from Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

The jerseys will be auctioned off online at the NHL Auctions page. Bidding will commence on Thursday, Feb. 9, 2017. Proceeds will benefit C.S. Mott Children's Hospital in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Last year's auction raised over $7,300 for the hospital.

Among the festivities planned for Star Wars Night are appearances by characters represented by the 501st Legion & Rebel Legion costuming groups, as well as a ceremonial puck drop. The Under-17 Team will wear the specially designed jerseys throughout the game. Puck-drop is scheduled for 7 p.m. EST.
