Red Wings make annual trip to Children’s Hospital

The Red Wings made their annual pre-holiday visit to Children's Hospital today, and DetroitRedWings.com's Andrea Nelson penned an article about the team's trip:

[Coach Mike] Babcock and the Red Wings make their annual visit to the hospital to bring holiday cheer to the children and families, but often leave with smiles on their faces as big and genuine as the ones they inspire.

“It’s like when you give presents to somebody on Christmas or on their birthday, their whole face, their whole heart lights up and just for them to see us, it’s like that same reaction so it’s unbelievable actually,” [Brendan] Smith said. “It’s quite an experience and I love how we set it up like this. It’s pretty impressive.”

The organization’s support of Children’s Hospital of Michigan over the years is greatly appreciated by everyone at the Detroit Medical Center.

“I can tell you that there is no team, no community organization, no group of human beings that have been more supportive, more kind to the children of this hospital than the Ilitch family and the Detroit Red Wings,” said Herman Gray, president of Children’s Hospital of Michigan. “And we are really grateful for it. You have stood up when things were going great, you have stood up when things were going not quite as great but you’ve always been there for us.”

About The Malik Report

The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
