A fundraiser featuring a hockey game between Clay and Anthony Wayne will be held Friday, Jan. 1 at 1 p.m. at Lucas County Arena to to benefit the Kyle Cannon Fund.

Cannon is the Clay hockey player who was paralyzed during a game last year in suburban Dayton. The 15-year-old is a sophomore at Clay.

Cannon was injured on Nov. 30, 2008 when he was checked from behind and shoved into the boards. Cannon suffered an injury to his C-5 vertebrae with 28 seconds left in the second period of Eagles' tournament game against Lexington, Ky.

The Clay hockey team honored Cannon last season by wearing a patch with Cannon's initials and the No. 3, Cannon's jersey number.

Both teams at the Jan. 1 benefit will wear special jerseys commemorating the game, and the jerseys will be auctioned following the game. All proceeds will be donated to help Cannon's family help defray some of the costs associated with his injuries.
