TORONTO (July 9, 2014) – NHL player Dominic Moore, forward for the New York Rangers, is proud to announce the third annual Smashfest – a fan-inspired event designed to showcase NHL players’ ping-pong skills while raising money and awareness for two important causes: concussions and traumatic brain injuries; and rare cancer research and advocacy.
