CHATHAM, NJ -  The Chatham High ice hockey team, in the midst of defending its 2013 Public B state championship, has donated $600 to the Mikey Nichols' fund.
 
The money was raised by the sale of T-Shirts commemorating Chatham's ice hockey game played at Yankee Stadium on Super Bowl Sunday. The Chatham captains are: A.J. Albanese, Colby Collier, Robert Graziano and Teddy Simson.
 
"The captains decided they wanted to do a fundraiser this year," JoAnn Graziano, who recently made the donation for the team. "The money raised for the St. Peter's-Chatham game at Yankee Stadium was donated to giveforward.com for Mikey Nichols."
 
Nichols broke his neck playing for the Monroe Townhip ice hockey team this season and is rehabilitating at Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation.
 
Chatham is set to meet Kinnelon in the state tournament quarterfinals, 6 p.m. Sunday at Mennen Sports Arena.
