Not long after the completion of their second-annual running of a marathon hockey fundraiser, the organizers and operators of the 11 Day Power Play are already looking ahead to a third event next year.

The 11-Day Power Play, which made history in 2017 while raising more than $1 million for cancer research, is planning to return in 2018. But this time, members of the public will be encouraged to lace up their skates, pick up their sticks and take their turns in another 11-day hockey game.

Game over, record set, mission accomplished. The 11 Day Power Play wrapped up early Monday in HarborCenter, successfully achieving its lofty goals in a cause launched months ago to support cancer research.

Thursday night, the hockey puck will drop atĀ HarborCenterĀ as an ambitious attempt to set a new record gets underway. Two teams of volunteers will spend the next 11 days playing a continuous game of hockey. While participants in the 11 Day Power Play seek to become the longest-ever hockey game played, the larger goal is to raise one million dollars for cancer research.
