Dear NHL: When LA Kings’ captain Dustin Brown slam you painfully into the boards this season, take heart in the fact that it costs him more than it costs you. This press release from the LA Kings explains why:
TEAM CAPTAIN WILL DONATE $50 FOR EVERY BODY CHECK
Los Angeles Kings right-winger and team captain Dustin Brown has announced a partnership with KaBOOM! in conjunction with the Kings Care Foundation.
Brown will donate $50 for each of his body checks during the 2008-09 season to KaBOOM!, a non-profit organization that envisions a great place to play within walking distance of very child in America. Last season Brown led the NHL with 311 body checks. Through five games the season he has a team-leading 21 body checks, which would equal $1,050 in donations.
In all seriousness, a good cause. As the Kings note: “Since 1995, KaBOOM! has led the construction of more than 1,500 playgrounds, ice rinks, skate parks, and athletic fields.” You can find out more here.
