The Boys and Girls Home and Family Services of Sioux City is in the midst of their annual Faceoff For Charity auction and once again the Musketeers are proud to be a partner.
The Home’s charity auction has helped meet the needs of numerous children, adults and families across Siouxland for over two decades. Among the items up for auction include hockey collectibles and unique experiences. Patrons will have the opportunity to bid on the autographed jerseys of past and current NHL players such as Patrick Kane, Carter Hart, Joe Nieuwendyk and former Musketeer Danny DeKeyser. Season tickets for the Musketeers’ 50th anniversary season are also up for auction, as well as single-game suite experiences.
Bidding is open until Sunday, April 18 at 8:00pm and proceeds from the auction support causes such as family and therapeutic services, residential treatment and opportunities schools in Siouxland.

For the fourth time in six weeks, Akira Schmid’s performance between the pipes has earned him the USHL Goaltender of the Week award.
The honor came after recording a 0.52 goals against average and a .981 save percentage to help the Musketeers earn a pair of victories over the weekend.
Schmid began the week with a 30-save shutout effort against the Des Moines Buccaneers on Friday. The following night he backstopped the Musketeers to a 2-1 overtime win over the Omaha Lancers, turning away 22 of the 23 shots he faced.
The New Jersey Devils prospect (2018, Round 5, #136 Overall) is currently riding an eight-game winning streak, posting a .948 save percentage and 1.38 goals against average during that span.
The Swiss netminder now owns the league’s best goals against average (2.14) and save percentage (.917), with an overall record of 18-13-1 in 32 games this season.
