Craig Anderson probably isn’t in the running for a Vezina this year, but he definitely is near the top of everyone’s favourite goalie personality. The humbled Senators’ netminder has taken on more heartache than almost any player, and on Valentine’s Day of 2018 tragedy struck close to home for him once again.
The school shooting that occurred at Stoneman Douglas high school tragically left 17 people dead. The hockey world has been doing everything it can to help ease the unimaginable pain. On Monday, Anderson – a former Florida Panther that lived in the area – treated 60 students to the Panthers-Senators game. The whole team also showed up to meet the students and sign autographs.
The gesture won’t heal the pain, but showing that the hockey world is still thinking about them will hopefully help a bit. Earlier today, Roberto Luongo had another message delivered to follow up his now-viral speech.
