Firefighters helping firefighters with charity hockey game


Two hockey teams are on the same side when it comes to helping a local fire department deal the loss of one of its own.

The Quad City Fire hockey team is made up of more than 15 first responders from local departments. 

They joined forces with the Chicago Fire hockey team and the QC Storm for a benefit game. 

The money will go to families of fallen Clinton Firefighter Eric Hosette and the injured Adam Cain.

“Right away when that tragedy occurred we knew as a team that we were going to be playing this year for our brothers and their families,” said Moline Firefighter Chris Elliott. “We help people we don’t know, let’s help people we do know as well.”

You can catch the hockey game tomorrow at 4:15 p.m. at the Taxslayer Center followed by the QC Storm at 7 p.m. Tickets are $20 and get you in to both games.
