A few Saskatchewan musicians will be among the performers that take to the ice for the annual Juno Cup hockey game between former NHL players and Canadian music stars at Merlis Belsher Place in Saskatoon on March 13.

The Junos are being hosted at the SaskTel Centre on March 15.

Ryan Gullen, bassist with Saskatoon’s The Sheepdogs, will join the Hunter Brothers of Shaunavon, Sask., as they face off against several former pros, including defenceman Brent Sopel, who spent time playing for the Saskatoon Blades, and goaltender Tim Cheveldae of Melville.

The event raises funds for MusiCounts, a Canadian charity for music education.
