Charlotte Checkers Help A Family Relocate From The Team's Old Hometown

Hockey Helps A Family – “Zach Bennett is an 11-year-old boy from Albany, N.Y., who suffers from Neurofibromatosis, a disease in which soft-tissue tumors grow throughout the body. The disease has resulted in 21 surgeries for Zach, including the amputation of both legs.” Zach was a die hard fan of the Albany River Rats and when they moved to Charlotte this off season, his parents made the decision to follow to the team – Charlotte just happens to be home to Neurofibromatosis specialists. His new hometown team had a fundraiser and flew the family down. (Puck Daddy)
