Teammates extends its heartiest congratulations to the Chicago Blackhawks and our current and former “Teammates” Captain Jonathan Toews, Duncan Keith, Brent Seabrook, Niklas Hjalmarsson, Patrick Kane, Jamal Mayers, Michael Rozsival, Sheldon Brookbank, and Viktor Stalberg on winning this year’s Stanley Cup.
Support for Teammates from the NHL continues to remain strong this year, with 192 players, coaches, and general managers signing on as Teammates for the 2012-2013 season. All of their donations based on game performance were tripled thanks to the generosity of the Zucker Family. Anita Zucker has been a Teammate since 2010 and serves on the foundation’s Board of Directors.
“The support of the players in the NHL continues to amaze us. These guys are some of the most generous athletes we get the privilege to work with.” Says Jason Grahame, Director of Operations at Teammates for Kids, “Congrats to the Blackhawks on what was an amazing year. 23 game point streak and capping it off with the Stanley Cup!”
During the 2012-2013 hockey season, Teammates gave $ 106, 000 in grants to NHL teams’ charities, supporting kids in local communities on behalf of our hockey Teammates.
