Please Note: All on-ice Winterfest events prior to the start of the Great Skate at 10 p.m. Saturday have been cancelled due to the weather conditions. All other Winterfest events are proceeding as scheduled.
Help support the Griffins Youth Foundation and the 2013 Great Skate Winterfest!
1. Click on the name of your favorite Griffins player, coach or staffer to sponsor their participation in the Great Skate! (Skating times/lineup subject to change due to recalls, assignments, injuries and weather conditions.)
Make a pledge for Adam Almquist, Joakim Andersson or Gustav Nyquist and your donation will have twice the impact for the Griffins Youth Foundation, as Configura will match the pledges raised by each player (up to a combined total of $500)!
