For the past four years, Blue Jackets Captain, Nick Foligno has hosted an annual NHL vs. Docs charity game in his off season home of Sudbury, Ontario, to help raise funds for the NEO Kids Foundation. This year was no exception. Nick, along with CBJ team mates, Cam Atkinson, Brandon Dubinsky,  Seth Jones, Boone Jenner, Scott Harrington, Pierre Luc Dubois, and Josh Anderson were joined by other NHL players Marcus Foligno, Marc Staal,  Matt Duchene, Anthony Duclair, Tyler Bertuzzi and Damien Giroux as they teamed up with local Sudbury doctors for a fun filled afternoon of hockey for a good cause.  John Tavares was also in attendance and served as a team coach for the event.
Around 3,000 people watched the white team go on to victory with a 12-11 win over the blue team.  This year’s events raised $348,848 and has raised over $790,590 total for the foundation.
Foligno is honorary chair of the NEO Kids Foundation, a cause that hits home with him because of his daughter Milana, who was born with a heart defect that caused her to have life saving surgery shortly after her birth 5 years ago.
Nick spoke to the media before the game on the importance of having upgraded medical care and programs in Sudbury.
I also caught up with former CBJ player, current Nashville Predator Matt Duchene and asked him about why he decided to take part in this year’s event.
