Now known as the Cobble Classic, the Bert Church High School students will take on the teachers (with some help from the schools and Calgary Flames alumni) to help raise funds for the Alberta Children's Hospital.
Ryan Jones, a teacher at Bert Church and the overseer of the event explains why the hockey game is now being called the "Cobble Classic".
"Mr. Cobble was a long-time staff member at Bert Church, and we lost him last year in the middle of the year. This is one event that he always wanted to participate in, and always did participate in. So in order to honour him and his family, we decided to name the game after him."
Jones went on to explain what the event is all about.
"We organize the teacher team, we look at getting some Flames alumni or alumni from our school to come out. Then we have students who want to play in the game, they go and they fundraise to earn their spot on the student team and then we have a hockey game over at Genesis Place."
Jones mentioned they are prioritizing their students to come to watch the game, it only costs them $2. Jones did mention if other community members come to watch they will be asked for a donation for the Alberta Children's Hospital.
There will be a couple of NHL alumni playing in the game and a Calgary police service officer on the teacher's side, one of them being former Calgary Flames player Tony Stiles.
Last year for the first time in the history of the event, the students won their first match in its eight-year history. The students look to make it back to back this Friday around 12 pm at Genesis Place.
