Just for a change I had Gaston draw the winning name in this latest contest which was an off-shoot of the big Scotiabank ‘Big Save’ extravaganza. Readers sent in hockey stories and told me about NHL players they’ve met over the years, and all the names went into the hat and here we are.
And Gaston picks……….Habby, who wrote in about her dad handling the Stanley Cup on several occasions while working at Toronto’s Pearson Airport.
But please have a look one more time at the contest that got this thing going, where a kids’ team goes to Whitehorse for Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada. That was the whole point of it, and imagine what it will be like for a bunch of kids and five or so parents to go up there and see the true north strong and free. Just a fabulous experience for whatever team wins this.

Habby, you need to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and send an address that I can pass along to Scotiabank and they’ll forward a family pack of hockey stuff to you. Thanks to everyone who shared hockey stories and the times they met NHL players. It was really interesting for sure.
