USA Hockey’s National Team Development Program changed things up a bit for the 2019-2020 season, but it’s all still for a great cause. After years of hosting a Star Wars Night game, Team USA changed the special day to Nickelodeon Night this time around, and the NTDP Under-17 Team battled the Lincoln Stars while wearing SpongeBob SquarePants jerseys.

The jerseys are being auctioned off to raise money for C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital, as the NTDP continues to support the world-class medical facility after forming a partnership while they were neighbors in Ann Arbor. Team USA has raised more than $40,000 for C.S. Mott since the fundraising game began. To bid on this year’s jerseys, click here – fans have until Feb. 19 to submit entries.
