The Niagara IceDogs have announced a partnership with Hockey Gives Blood. Following a horrible in-game injury to Tucker Tynan, and a successful blood drive at the St. Catharines Blood Donor Clinic, collecting 51 units of blood, the IceDogs have entered into a partnership with Hockey Gives Blood.
The partnership will extend beyond the remaining months of the 2019-20 season.
Hockey Gives Blood is a non-profit organization founded by former hockey players, dedicated to encouraging members of the hockey community to help save lives through the donation of blood and blood products.
The IceDogs will help promote blood donation and stem cell awareness, during the rest of the season. Through community outreach, annual blood drives, and game night promotion, the IceDogs will assist Canadian Blood Services and Hockey Gives Blood in reaching their donor goals.
