(Edmonton, AB) - Casi Russell, wife of Oilers defenceman Kris Russell, and the Oilers Ladies will host a Toy Drive in support of the Central Alberta Advocacy Centre and CASA Child, Adolescent and Family Mental Health as the Oilers face off against the Ottawa Senators on Saturday, March 23, with help from the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation.  

"Our goal with the Oilers Ladies Toy Drive is to team up with our generous and supportive fans to help bring some brightness to a child or adolescent`s life who has been faced with many challenges," said Casi Russell. "We also want to raise awareness for both the Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre and CASA because they are organizations that offer hope, healing and help to children, adolescents and families suffering from abuse or mental health issues. Last year, players and Oilers Ladies donated toys to a few organizations and we were all overwhelmed by the emotional reactions of appreciation from our small contribution. We knew we could make this a much bigger and better initiative if we reached out to our community for help."

EDMONTON, AB - Zeyad Almahamed was laced up in a pair of hockey skates with a stick in hand for the first time during an Introduction to Hockey session at the Downtown Community Arena on February 7.

The 13-year-old took part in the session, which was designed to introduce youth to the sport of hockey, alongside 30 more participants from the Edmonton Mennonite Centre for Newcomers.

"We were playing, practicing, and doing some tricks," Zeyad said of his first hockey experience after arriving in Canada in 2016. "At the end, we played a game versus each other. It felt so nice and so exciting."

Fast forward to February 19, Hockey Is For Everyone night at Rogers Place, and Zeyad was having his name called by the public announcer and lining up on the blueline alongside future heroes Leon Draisaitl, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, and Oscar Klefbom.

"I felt scared, shy, and excited at the same time," he admitted. "I want to play all my life now."
