Kings' Stoll helps raise money for Saskatoon hospital

Royal University Hospital in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan has benefitted greatly over the years thanks to the generosity of Los Angeles Kings forward Jarret Stoll. On top of that, it got a visit from the Stanley Cup on Sunday.

Stoll paid a visit to the hospital during his day with the Cup, spending time with children and their families as part of a fundraiser that proved quite successful.

In a picture tweeted by the Kings, the 32-year-old is seen posing with a young boy and Lord Stanley's trophy. On a stand nearby is a check for $1 million from the Jarret Stoll Patient Comfort Fund Endowment for Children. Stoll has been raising money through his foundation and an annual charity golf tournament for the past nine years.

Stoll visited Kiwanis Memorial Park North for two hours in the afternoon, giving fans the opportunity to take their photo with the Cup. Donations to the hospital were encouraged.

In Stoll's previous time hosting the Stanley Cup in 2012, he visited the southeastern Saskatchewan towns of Neudorf and Yorkton, visiting two separate hockey rinks, holding numerous public events and ending with a banquet with nearly 1,100 guests.

Quote of the Day

Life's about opportunity and how you respond to that opportunity, and obviously he must have some swagger about him, some confidence about him, because he was solid. He made some good saves. He was 6-foot-3 on every shot, which is a good thing for a goalie. He played well. We got a win.
