Ducks to auction camouflage jerseys for a good cause
The camouflage jerseys the Ducks wore Tuesday during the warmups before their game against the Pittsburgh Penguins weren't part of an attempt at disguising themselves during a difficult season.
The jerseys were worn for a good cause. The Anaheim Ducks Foundation will auction them on Saturday for the benefit of Operation Homefront, an organization that provides emergency and morale assistance for troops returning home from service. The jerseys worn by Jonas Hiller, Joffrey Lupul, George Parros and Corey Perry will be auctioned during the Ducks' game against the Phoenix Coyotes at the Honda Center, with the other jerseys to be auctioned later through www.anaheimducks.com.
The Ducks donated tickets for Saturday's game to Operation Homefront and the Veterans Tickets Foundation. Service men and women in attendance will be asked to stand and be recognized during the game, and the Ducks' team store will offer a 15% discount for fans showing a military ID.
