On May 1, brokers competing on Team Jet and Team Lau laced up their skates and hit the ice at Braemar Ice Arena in Edina for the 15th annual Opus Cup hockey game.

Wearing jerseys representing the 2014 Olympic teams of the United States of America and Canada, the teams did not disappoint the cheering spectators. Both teams put up a good fight for the prized trophy and after three exciting periods, Team Jet, led by Jim Jetland of Cushman & Wakefield|NorthMarq, prevailed and kept the title with a final score of 8 to 5.

This annual game brings colleagues from across Minneapolis’ commercial real estate community together for a fun game of hockey that raises money for charity. Since its inception, the Opus Cup has raised more than $149,000 for local charities.

This year’s proceeds of $8,005, along with an additional $5,000 from the Opus Foundation®, were presented to NAIOP Minnesota’s charity partner, Camp Fire Minnesota, at the June 19 program. A big thank you to Cushman & Wakefield|NorthMarq, Welsh Companies and First American Title Company for their corporate sponsorships. We’d also like to thank BDH & Young for sponsoring the 1st intermission – Chuck-a-Puck – and Pinstripes in Edina for providing the Kid’s Party Package prize.

For those of you keeping a tally, Team Lau, coached by Wade Lau of Founders Properties, has a total of 6 wins over the years and Team Jet is now up to 9. Whether you’re a hockey fan or not, it’s always fun to see this group of professionals face-off in a casual setting and put their hockey skills to test.

Thank you to everyone who came out and supported this great event!
