NHL Hockey players visit Inuvik, part 1: The airport

 

People outside Canada might not realize this but the National Hockey League (NHL) is currently “locked out” due to contract disputes between owners and players. What do players do with the downtime?

Why not come to the arctic and raise funds for charity — in this case, sports programs for aboriginal youth.

Nine players from the Ottawa Senators stopped by today and one very famous northerner: Jordin Tootoo who is originally from Nunavut and now plays for Detroit.
