Fog Devils' President, Brad Dobbin, said the special hospital visit was part of the organization's commitment to brighten the lives of kids in the community

"This is something we can plan to make an annual tradition", he said. "Christmas is all about giving and we hope that by giving a little of our time today that we helped lift the spirits of these kids. This is a very difficult time of the year to be in the hospital and this visit was all about making them smile and to create a positive experience." Carrying bags of Fog Devils goodies, the players visited the playroom and various wards Wednesday morning. The children's faces lit up when they go the opportunity to meet Scorch and their local hockey heroes.

"He was hooked up to all the machines, but he was so excited to meet us," he said. "It was an awesome feeling.
