Sports television personality Michael Landsberg will be on hand as part of the Do It For Daron (D.I.F.D.) night on Thursday in Guelph.
The event, part of the Gryphons men’s hockey game against Wilfrid Laurier, is to help raise awareness about youth and mental health issues. The campaign is named after Daron Richardson, the daughter of former NHLer Luke Richardson, who took her own life in 2010.
Landsberg, host of TSN’s Off The Record, will speak prior to the game. He has had his own battles with depression and is a vocal supporter of mental health awareness, said a news release.
One dollar from each ticket sold at the game will be donated toward the D.I.F.D. campaign.
Game time Thursday is at 7:30 p.m. at the U of G.
