Giving back, Sens style...

Sometimes good things happen and get overshadowed...

Case in point - read today's article in the Citizen on Mike Fisher. Not only does #12 support Rogers House but went on an eye opening journey.

Senators that give back isn't new, for example:

Captain Daniel Alfredsson lends his name to the Royal Ottawa Hospital, Chris Phillips and his wife Erin (who I've run into at several fundraisers this off season) support the Queensway Carleton Hospital, even Jason Spezza (who has no shortage of critics) recently raised almost 50k from his golf tournament for Rogers House and Ronald Macdonald House. Those are just a few examples and other members of this team give back, not to mention stuff we never hear about.

Safe to say that the charities that benefit from their association with these players don't read the plus/minus stats.
