The AUD packed as usual tonight with screaming fans and great hockey. 

The comets did something special though, wearing green St. Patrick’s Day jerseys for the game.

They weren’t just wearing them for St. Patrick’s Day.

After the game they're being auctioned off for charity just like the pink jerseys they wore at the end of January for cancer awareness.

This time the money is going to the rescue mission of Utica.

People at the game thought two things.

One, the jersey's looked awesome.

And two, it’s a great opportunity for the community to show support for the less fortunate.

"I think it’s really important to try to bridge all sorts of gaps," said Gina Szczygiel.

"I think it’s a great opportunity for the community to come together with the different jerseys, you know, it’s for the charities. It’s great, you know. It’s good to see the community together, especially with the hockey team," said Brian Rondeau.

"I think all around the comets are great for the entire city. Whether it’s, like you said, the rescue mission or the last time I know it was the cancer awareness. Everything they do everyone seems to turn out," Guy Greco.

The rescue mission says that all the proceeds from the jersey auction will go to help the homeless and needy of Utica.
