Robin and Carter Thicke, Taylor Kitsch Suiting Up for NHL All-Star Celebrity Shootout

Players will pay tribute to late “Growing Pains” actor Alan Thicke by wearing patches on their jerseys

Robin Thicke will have a family reunion with his half-brother, Carter, on Saturday at the 2017 NHL All-Star Celebrity Shootout competition.

The “Blurred Lines” singer will act as an assistant coach, while Carter is set to lace up his skates and join “True Detective” actor Taylor Kitsch among the famous starting players hitting the ice at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

In addition, Michael J. Fox, Keanu Reeves, NBC anchor Al Michaels and “Jeopardy!” host Alex Trebek have all been added to the impressive list of names presenting at Friday’s NHL 100 Gala, hosted by Jon Hamm.

Robin and Carter are both mourning the death of their father, Alan Thicke, after the “Growing Pains” star collapsed and died on Dec. 13 while watching his youngest son play hockey in Burbank, California. Carter will play in honor of his father in Saturday’s game, and both teams will wear patches dedicated to the beloved TV actor.

Along with Canadian native Kitsch, who’s been playing hockey since he was three years old, the rosters under NHL Hall of Famers Wayne Gretzky and Mario Lemieux are: Tim Robbins, David Boreanaz and Ross Lynch.

“This game should be an absolute thrill for the participants and for the fans,” Los Angeles Kings President, Business Operations Luc Robitaille said in a statement Thursday. “Seeing so many of the League’s greatest players on the ice once again will be something to remember and may not happen again anytime soon!”

The 2017 NHL All-Star Celebrity Shootout will benefit Echoes of Hope, a nonprofit organization founded by Luc and Stacia Robitaille, which strives to inspire hope in the lives of at-risk and emancipated foster youth. The organization assists youth in their pursuit of independence, empowerment and a post-secondary education. In 2016, Echoes of Hope assisted over 500 youth throughout the country.

The game tips off Saturday, Jan. 28 at 2:15 p.m. PT, prior to the 2017 Coors Light NHL All-Star Skills Competition at Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles. NHL.com and the NHL App will live stream the charity game.
