It was a star-studded affair as hockey fans in this town had a chance to mingle with the likes Max Pacioretty, Alexander Ovechkin and Vladislav Tretiak.

The three came together as part of the 2nd Annual All-Star Charity Event, that took place at the Windsor Hotel.  For Pacioretty, it’s part of his effort to help raise funds for the purchase of a $3.5 million MRI machine for the Montreal General Hospital.

Tretiak has devoted his time and efforts to raising funds for medical equipment and supplies for hospitals in Russia.


About ahefter

I have covered hockey extensively during my 30-year sports broadcasting career. From the Miracle on Ice at Lake Placid to the Edmonton Oiler dynasty years, I've shared my views on hockey with listeners in Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver. You can "catch me in action" on Youtube at the following URL: My radio stops include TSN 690 Montreal, CJAD Montreal, CKNW Vancouver, and CKEY Toronto. I also ran the Canadian Press sports desk (radio). My travels as a network reporter have taken me to four Olympics, most recently Vancouver 2010. I'm currently an Applied Assistant Professor within the School of Communication at the University of Hartford.
