Justin Bieber is the latest addition to the roster for the 2017 NHL All-Star Celebrity Shootout, where he will square off against NHL players and fellow celebrities from movies, TV, and music on Saturday at Los Angeles’ Staples Center.
Under the direction of Hockey Hall of Famers Wayne Gretzky and Mario Lemieux, fellow NHL players and Hollywood’s sports fans are bringing their A-game to benefit Echoes of Hope. Each player will also wear a special patch dedicated to the late actor and hockey fanatic Alan Thicke.
The L.A. Kings shared a quick video on Twitter with Bieber, pumping up the game.
Bones and Buffy the Vampire Slayer star David Boreanez, Disney star Ross Lynch, The People v O.J. Simpson’s Cuba Gooding, Jr., and producer Jerry Bruckheimer are among the Hollywood crowd participating in the game.
