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.
It's a tribute to him, and everything he's done and deserved is coming to fruition tonight with his jersey in the rafters. He's going to be a first-ballot Hall of Famer. And I said today, if he's not, take my stuff out. If he doesn't deserve to be in there first ballot, no one does. Except for (Wayne) Gretzky, I guess.
