Dan Hamhuis to visit children's hospital in "Hockey for Haiti" initiative

New, comments

Nashville Predators defenseman Dan Hamhuis has long been known for his charitable work, whether visiting the Vanderbilt Children's Hospital dressed as Winnie the Pooh to cheer up the kids, or being nominated by his teammates for this year's King Clancy Award.

Now, his latest endeavor takes him to Haiti on Wednesday, June 9th. This, from the NHLPA:

NHL players Georges Laraque and Dan Hamhuis visit Grace Children's Hospital, Haiti's leading pediatric hospital for the treatment of tuberculosis. Devastated by the earthquake, the hospital is now operating an outpatient clinic from tents in the yard.

The National Hockey League Players' Association (NHLPA) and World Vision Canada will make a significant announcement on the "Hockey for Haiti" initiative and how it is helping to rebuild Grace Children's Hospital. They will also provide an update on the NHLPA's online auction of 140 Olympic hockey jerseys worn by NHL players from 12 countries.

Good stuff from one of the real leaders of the Nashville Predators. Wherever he ends up during free agency, that team will be getting a solid individual, both on and off the ice.
