'Shocks and Saves' game a hit in Saginaw

The first annual Shocks and Saves charity game saw former Detroit Red Wings defenseman Jiri Fisher make his first public skate tonight in Saginaw since he collapsed on the Red Wings' bench on November 21, 2005.

Former NHLers Don Edwards (current Saginaw general manager) and Warren Rychel, as well as several local doctors and medical professionals, also participated in the event that raised over $15,000 for Fischer's Healthy Hope Foundation.

The Foundation will be donating that money to the local community to support the placement of Automatic External Defibrillators (AEDs) in mid-Michigan schools and ice rinks.

The Saginaw Spirit lost the OHL game to Windsor, 4-3 in overtime.
