Movember Salvaged Despite Fewer NHL Donations

Movember for NHL fans wasn’t as grand as seasons’ past, as it had the stench of the lockout on it. But that didn’t stop a few Caps, front office folks, and the Bears from participating, raising a respectable amount of money considering they only had Twitter (and the media) to promote it. For the NHL players, the most organized groups were those of George Paros ($8,176 to the team) and Mike Brown ($5,274.59 to the team). Several members of the Washington Capitals organization participated, as well as the Hershey Bears. Last season, Caps players themselves raised about $10,095. This year, we only found three who participated, raising $1,735. Fun note – the National Hockey League Players’ Association donated to some of the players. Here we compile the numbers of what they raised.

Washington Capitals Organization: $1,670

Despite Rod Langway’s enthusiasm in updating his page with photos (below), he only managed to raise $25 in donations. That’s still more than the $0 Yvon Labre raised. We’d like to suggest that they both join Twitter next time.

Washington Capitals Players: $1,735
