New life for old equipment

Fans in the New York City metro area can donate their used hockey equipment this weekend (Friday-Sunday, at the NHL powered by Reebok store). Upon collection, non-profit Restore Hockey will refurbish all donated gear, which will be delivered to youth community-based hockey programs in need of support.

Accepted items include helmets, shoulder pads, elbow pads, hockey pants, shin pads, gloves, skates and sticks. Donors will receive a 15% discount at the NHL Powered by Reebok store.

Your used equipment can help the environment and grow the sport we all love.  Read on to see how three brothers from Connecticut gave 35 children from Chalestown, Massachusetts the opportunity to play the game of hockey.

Mike Spengler is the President and Co-Founder of Restore Hockey, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that works to recycle used hockey equipment back into the game.

Quote of the Day

When we started our journey we made a commitment to our fans to be relevant and to see the Chicago Blackhawks become the best professional hockey organization. There are not two finer symbols of that than Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. The commitment we have made to these incredible young men is equal to the commitment they have made to our team, our fans, our entire organization and the city of Chicago.

— Chicago Blackhawks owner Rocky Wirtz on signing Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane to contract extensions
