Mr. Trottier, a four-time Stanley Cup winner, said the group’s message is to instill confidence in children from smaller rural communities who may struggle to complete high school.
“We all had challenges, I’m non-status, I grew up in a small community,” said Mr. Trottier. “We just want to let them know that they can do it. It’s not easy, it’s hard work, but the payout at the end is worth it. If you only play one game, one shift, score one goal the memories and the dreams remain.”
But the group’s message isn’t just about hockey, they want to encourage everyone to follow their dreams whatever they may be.
“Whether you’re a child or an adult, whether it’s sports or painting, whether it’s mechanics, find your skill, your passion and work towards is,” said Mr. Troittier.
With donated orange rubber bracelets from the New York Islanders, the men had each child put on the bracelet and promise to complete high school.
