TORONTO - A group of NHL stars is set to take the ice again at Maple Leaf Gardens.

Steven Stamkos and P.K. Subban are scheduled to lead teams of locked-out NHLers during a charity game on Dec. 19. It will be held at Ryerson University's new Mattamy Athletic Centre, which is located inside the building the Toronto Maple Leafs called home from 1931 to 1999.

The proceeds from the game will benefit the NHLPA's Goals&Dreams fund and RBC's Play Hockey initiative.

"(It) is a great opportunity to share the joy and excitement of hockey with our fans," Stamkos said Wednesday in a release. "I'm looking forward to playing alongside this impressive lineup of fellow NHL players while helping to raise funds to benefit local hockey programs across the country."

Among the other players set to attend are James Neal, Logan Couture, Dion Phaneuf, Phil Kessel, Tomas Kaberle, Mike Komisarek, Kris Versteeg, Niklas Kronwall and John-Michael Liles.

Tickets will be on sale starting Thursday at a price of $25.
