KANDAHAR, Afghanistan (CP) — The owner of the Ottawa Senators is delivering gifts including $50,000 worth of hockey equipment to Canadian troops in Afghanistan. Eugene Melnyk is visiting the NATO base in Kandahar.
Melnyk stepped off of a C130 Hercules transport aircraft wearing body armour and carrying an army helmet.
The troops — for whom ball hockey is a major pastime — are getting new goalie equipment, hockey sticks, inline skates, balls and NHL and Team Canada jerseys.
The billionaire businessman is also delivering 2,500 Tim Hortons gift certificates.
