The Players Pay Tribute to Veterans
The Players took to social media today to pay their respects to the men and women who have and continue to bravely serve their countries.
NHL players make a point of honouring North American military soldiers and families throughout each season. From player programs that allow military families to attend games and meet players to dedicated military appreciation nights – the players are supportive of our men and women in uniform. So today on Veterans Day (US) and Remembrance Day (CAN), it’s no surprise that many players took to social media to pay tribute to the brave men and women who have, and who continue, to bravely serve their countries.
Here are a collection of the tweets players shared on November 11th in honour and remembrance of our veterans:
