Orpik donates equipment to 'Hockey in the Hood'

Wednesday, 08.19.2009 / 10:30 AM / Hockey is for Everyone
Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Brooks Orpik has donated 15 sets of OneGoal starter hockey equipment to Pittsburgh's inner-city "Hockey in the Hood" program.
 
Each player attending the U.S. Olympic Men's Hockey Orientation Camp this week in Woodbridge, Ill. will donate 15 sets of equipment to the youth organization of his choice. The equipment was purchased by the National Hockey League Players Association through its "Goals & Dreams" fund, in cooperation with USA Hockey and OneGoal.
 
Orpik is one of 34 NHL players participating in the Olympic camp.

I've been getting frustrated lately, and the only thing keeping me sane was the team winning and other people stepping up and scoring. Then you just kind of let it go and realize you can end the series with one shot, that frustration goes away for a brief moment, and that's what happened.
