Default Re: NHL Player Reaches Out To 11-Year-Old Kid Bullied By Opposing Fans

Great job by Tavares though reaching out to this kid. Hockey players are the best.
Completely agree with the Philly comparison. Though, they live in Winnipeg - there's absolutely shit all out there. I pity Jets fans.

I also get a laugh every time the Jets come into St. Louis. One, it's usually a win for the Blues and two, they boo captain Andrew Ladd. Being an ex-Blackhawk in St. Louis is rough.
