Arizona Coyotes' Anthony Duclair to Trade Ice for Asphalt

Pointe-Claire native to play a friendly game with the men of Welcome Hall Mission

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - July 4, 2016) - Most men turning to Welcome Hall Mission for help have called the street their home. But on one special evening, the street will become the home of an epic game of ball hockey in the company of Anthony Duclair from the National Hockey League. This event is a way for the organization to keep the homeless men motivated so that they can eventually play a more active role within the community once they are out of the street and back on their feet. The men will also be treated to great food by renowned establishments from just around the corner. As a way to give back to the Saint-Henri community in a delicious way, Tuck Shop will provide gourmet burgers with all the trimmings and Rustique Pie Kitchen will serve mouth-watering desserts.

WHAT: Friendly game of ball hockey followed by a BBQ
