From Iain MacIntyre at the Vancouver Sun via Faceoff.com,

Immediately after his packed, televised press conference at General Motors Place, Linden handed over to the Canucks’ charity the $25,000 he received last month from the National Hockey League as part of a humanitarian award.

It won’t be Linden’s last act of community service even if he never skates another shift in the NHL.

“No, I don’t think that will stop,” Linden’s wife, Cristina, said.
