Hockey Day in Canada hits Thunder Bay

Its Hockey Day in Canada and Thunder Bay is taking part in the festivities.  The National Hockey Leagues Players Association with the support of our local NHL players is donating 120 sets of hockey equipment to 11 minor hockey clubs in the area.  NHLPA Spokespeople say the equipment worth over 60 thousand dollars will allow a number of kids who wouldn't normally get a chance to play hockey, to lace em up.  The festivities kicked off yesterday with a banquet in Murrilo.
