Johnny Gaudreau Donates $1000 Per Goal to KidSport Calgary

Playing sports not only gives them the chance to learn the ins and outs of the game, but it's so important in make-up of who they'll become.

Through KidSport™ Calgary - a local non-profit organization - families that thought they couldn't put their children in sports, now can. For Calgary Flames star Johnny Gaudreau, he knows all too well that his parents worked hard to help him and his siblings play sports.
