Kings forward Wayne Simmonds will join the Capitals’ Donald Brashear and Nicklas Backstrom as well as Willie O'Ree, the NHL's first black player, in visiting the Fort Dupont Ice Hockey Club. Located in Southeast Washington D.C., it is the nation’s oldest minority youth hockey program. The event coincides with Hockey is for Everyone Month, the NHL’s diversity initiative.
"I always want to give back and I think it’s a good thing that we’re doing it," Simmonds said. "It’s always good to support the cause and help out the little kids."
