As soon as I walked into the hallway of the Windsor Hotel and saw the sign commemorating the foundation of the National Hockey League right there in one of the hotel’s restaurants, I knew it was going to be a great evening.
The All-Star Event was a charity fundraiser for the Vladislav Tretiak and Max Pacioretty Foundations. The event took place last Friday February 3rd, and Classic Auctions
The evening helped raise a total of more than $100,000. The event allowed more than 500 guests to meet numerous hockey legends and active players including Vladislav Tretiak, Max Pacioretty, Alex Ovechkin, P.K. Subban, Lars Eller, and Peter Budaj, among others. All were real gentlemen and true pros.
I have never met Mick Jagger or any other rock star, but I can now say that I've met Alex Ovechkin. Does that count? I was backstage when Ovechkin arrived at the event and it really felt like a rock star's entrance. I honestly don’t know how a player like that would be able to play for the Montreal Canadiens. The Habs might not have a large enough security budget!
