Bridgestone/Firestone, Famed Goalie, Stanley Cup Visit Hospital

Toronto Maple Leaf legend Johnny Bower brought the Stanley Cup to visit patients at the SickKids Hospital in Toronto recently, courtesy of Bridgestone/Firestone Canada.

The two-time Vezina trophy winner and Hockey Hall of Fame inductee spent time talking to patients, signing autographs and posing with the Cup, which bears his name four times. Children in all of the hospital’s wards got a chance top visit the Cup.

In addition, Bridgestone/Firestone Canada employees raised $25,000 for the SickKids Foundation at their annual golf outing.

Earlier in the year, Bridgestone was named the official tire of the NHL, NHLPA and the hockey Hall of Fame in a multi-year marketing program. (Tire Review/Akron)
