He added, “if a couple guys from the fire department step out of line or it gets too lopsided, we’ll split the teams up in between periods, and make it a little more even just to make it fun, but it’ll be entertaining, guaranteed.

“The emcees for the game are former Cubs pitcher Ryan Dempster and WGN’s Very Own Ben Bradley.

All of the proceeds benefit Cheli’s Children’s Foundation and Teen Cancer America.Puck drops at 3:30pm at Fifth Third Arena this Sunday, March 15.
