Arizona Coyotes make holiday visit to Phoenix Children’s Hospital
PHOENIX — The Arizona Coyotes took some time Friday afternoon to put smiles on children’s faces.
The hockey team visited Phoenix Children’s Hospital to say hello to the kids there this holiday season.
“These kids have gone through a lot,” said Arizona Coyotes goaltender Mike Smith. “To come in [to the hospital] and chat with them for a few minutes and bring some gifts and hopefully put a smile on their face, it means a lot to us.”
Coyotes players handed out stuffed animals of the team’s mascot, Howler, to the children. They also handed out stickers and blankets, and had time to talk with the kids and their families.
“What these kids are doing and how strong they are and how much they’re fighting is pretty remarkable,” said Coyotes forward Max Domi. “It’s something that we definitely look up to and have a lot of respect for and definitely admire.”
