The National Hockey League Players’ Association (NHLPA) and Source for Sports®  are pleased to announce that Source For Sports® will be serving as the “Official Equipment Supplier” of the NHLPA Goals & Dreams Game Changer Award program.

The program assists individual families who find themselves in unique financial situations due to economic or social reasons such as job loss, divorce and more. As the official equipment supplier for this award, Source For Sports® will fit and supply the hockey gear for these deserving applicants.

“No one should be left out of hockey because they can’t afford it says Dale Donaldson, owner of Mallard’s Source For Sports® in Castlegar. “We are very excited to partner with the NHLPA and help give back to people in our community and help all kids enjoy the game of hockey.”

Source For Sports® will also assist with fulfilling regular NHLPA Goals & Dreams equipment grants, beyond those included as part of the NHLPA Game Changer Award Program. NHLPA Goals & Dreams assists volunteer-based grassroots hockey programs that help economically disadvantaged children play the great sport of hockey.

NHLPA members and Source For Sports® share in the belief that more children should have the opportunity to play hockey, a sport that educates players in teamwork, commitment, discipline and physical fitness.

“We are excited to partner with Source for Sports to help even more children play the great game of hockey,” said Devin Smith, Chairman of the NHLPA Goals & Dreams fund.

“This new partnership will provide children the joy of walking into a Source for Sports® store to pick out brand new gear.”“We have deep roots in our hockey communities right across Canada, and this partnership with the NHLPA will allow children to continue the hockey tradition that many of us enjoyed growing up,” says Brad Hause, President of Source For Sports®.
