We were decent fans at that point ... handful of games a year, but to personally experience that act of kindness was unbelievable. Jack Campbell is one hell of a dude and so is Stu Barnes.

Just like 100 Degree Hockey mentioned, the whole press release is worth reading.
Jack's amazing. Such a down to earth, easy to talk to guy. Heart of gold. When he gave me this after the New Year's World Jr game vs Canada up here in Edmonton a couple years ago, I told him I owe him. He said no you don't, you're a fan and I appreciate it. I told him to let me know what charity I can donate to in his name and he replied with, "No that's okay. You let me know what charity I can donate to."

Great guy. Truly makes you an even bigger fan.
