The Make A Change Canada Nelson charity hockey game on January 23rd matching the hometown Kootenay Patricks against the Montreal Canadiens Alumni did not disappoint the sellout crowd in attendance as both teams put on an amazing display of hockey.

And now, organizers of Make A Change Canada Nelson have some of the figures in from the fundraising event, which also will not disappoint.

The event raised more than $50,000 to benefit individuals in local communities.

Mallard’s Source for sports would like to salute everyone involved with Team of the Week honours.

Pictured at center ice following the game are members of the Montreal Canadiens Alumni and Kootenay Patricks teams.
