Southern Ontario boogie rockers Monster Truck did a good thing this year.

The heshers decided to sponsor a peewee house league girls’ hockey team.

The strangeness (and, oddly, coolness) of this whole scenario was not lost on me.

So I interviewed band guitarist Jeremy Wilderman about it for Samaritan Mag.

To read the full interview about why the band decided to do this click here.

On-Ice Tragedy Leads To Hockey For Heart

There’s a certain gallows humour in adult rec hockey dressing rooms that usually involves some variation of “get the defibrillator out” coupled with a pointed insult directed at whoever the fattest guy in the room is. That’s the funny stuff, but on the serious side, Rob Weir and his tournament series called Hockey For Heart can be counted amongst the folks responsible for getting said defibrillators into arenas.

Aaron wrote about Rob’s journey and the Hockey For Heart tournament for Samaritan Mag. You can read the story by clicking here.
