Hockey players in an isolated northern Manitoba community are looking up to NHL players for more than just their hockey skills after learning the big-league players are outfitting them with brand new gear.
Children in Berens River, a fly-in aboriginal community on the east side of Lake Winnipeg, will receive complete sets of new equipment from the National Hockey League Players’ Association’s Goals and Dreams fund.
Until now, the children have been a ragtag group on the ice. Most children don’t have helmets, and not everyone has gloves.
