The proceeds from the event benefit Connected North, a program which uses video technology to deliver education and mental health and wellness services, otherwise not available locally, to students in remote northern communities in Canada.
Bryan Trottier and I first connected back in 2011 at the Road Hockey to Conquer Cancer event. As a seven-time Stanley Cup Champion, Bryan knows a thing or two about hockey, so it’s an honor to take part in the Tech4Good hockey tournament with him.
Together as team Captains, we will rally friends and colleagues in support of Connected North and to raise awareness for the charity.
The Connected North program is especially important to Bryan. Known as Canada’s most decorated Indigenous athlete, he spends his time traveling to Indigenous communities to teach kids about their heritage and lessons in leadership development.
Other NHL alumni participating in this year’s Tech4Good event include: Brad May, Rick Vaive, Tom Fergus, Ric Nattress, Gary Leeman and Nik Antropov. It’s an all-around good time, and for hockey fans who want to come out and watch the tournament, they can enter at the door with a $5 donation.
Last year, we raised over $300,000 for Connected North, and this year, with your help, we hope to raise even more. Please come out and support us!
