Chara & Friends Aid Right to Play at ASG

Great note from Brian Cazeneuve on SI.com:

[A] great assist should go to Zdeno Chara, the Bruins' defenseman who cannonballed a 105.4 mile-per-hour slapper to win the hardest-shot competition. Chara donned a hat with the logo of Right to Play, the worthy athlete-driven charitable group that uses sports to aid underprivileged and impoverished children around the world. He convinced the other five players in the hardest-shot competition (Lecavalier, Mark Streit of the Islanders, Shea Weber of the Predators, Mike Komisarek of the Canadiens and Sheldon Souray of the Oilers), to donate $1,000 for the organization. Upon hearing this, the NHL, the NHL Players' Association and the clubs of the six players all matched the players' donations, so there was $24,000 in the pot.
