ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — Locked-out NHL players hit the ice Saturday night to raise money for Superstorm Sandy victims.

New York Rangers star Henrik Lundqvist made 57 saves in the Operation Hat Trick charity game at Boardwalk Hall to help Team New York beat Team New Jersey 10-6.

Tickets ranged from $20 to $100, and the players’ equipment will be autographed and auctioned off. The proceeds are earmarked for the American Red Cross, Empire State Relief Fund and the New Jersey Hurricane Relief Fund. The NHLPA also donated $20,000 to the charities.
