The Arizona Coyotes are stepping up after a local hockey team reported stolen gear.
According to ABC15 Arizona, the triple-A Arizona Bobcats lost a trailer full of their gear, and when the Coyotes got wind of it, members of the organization decided to put their own money towards replacement gear.
Oliver Ekman-Larsson and Lawson Crouse, as well as team president Aaron Cohen, have raised $20,000 to buy new equipment for the Bobcats.
Good on them for giving back to the community! Especially once you’ve made it to the NHL, it’s important to continue growing the game at the grassroots level, and making sure that these kids have the gear to play is a big part of that.
While they’re at it, maybe the Coyotes can send a shipment of these fantastic new shirts to the Bobcats, too.
