A small group of volunteers wants to unleash a hailstorm of orange hockey pucks at Rexall Place in Edmonton — all in the name of advancing stuttering treatment and research at the University of Alberta.

The fledgling volunteer group, working under the name Friends of ISTAR, is partnering with the Edmonton Oil Kings and the Sherwood Park Elks to hold Chuck-a-Puck at the Oil Kings game on Oct. 15.
